Arab Strap – Cherubs

They don’t make ’em like this anymore. One of the most original bands of the last decade. Dark, confessional, heartfelt, painfully brilliant. Sad to see them split up a while back, but glad that Aidan and Malcolm are both still doing solo stuff. It’s worth getting Mad for Sadness just for ‘Girls of Summer’. I found it in an old CD wallet today and it’s been giving me the shivers all afternoon – I can’t believe it’s a live album! It takes me back to Road Records and the TBMC circa 1999.
