Four years after Arab Strap flew off to the big miserable record shop in the sky, their label, Chemikal Underground, have released a documentary short, tracing lead singer Aidan Moffat’s mental decline since the band broke up.

In ‘Arab Strap is Dead’, Moffat is seen in an apparent state of depression, weeping over a framed picture of himself and his former bandmate, Malcolm Middleton.

The Bang Bang Club

Subversive club night 'where 'Twin Peaks' meets the Edinburgh underground', with an eclectic soundtrack of underground rock'n'roll, with DJs The Baron and The Regent and a guest DJ set from Aidan Moffat (ex-Arab Strap) who should fit the vibe perfectly.

The former Arab Strap frontman embarks on a celebration of Scotland's musical and oral traditions, featuring folk sagas, drinking songs, bawdy ballads, bruised laments and probably some old songs too.
