More Info

First ever re-issue of the 2nd Arab Strap album, originally released in 1998. "Philophobia" was recorded on the outskirts of Glasgow in the early incarnation of CHEM19 Studios with engineer/producer Paul Savage & at Cava Studios in Glasgow with engineer Geoff Allan. Instrumentally ambitious, "Philophobia" is adorned with sepulchral guitar, trumpet, cello & Scottish rainfall, providing a most beautiful backdrop to Aidan Moffat’s bold lyrical presentation as he articulates experiences most of us are too embarrassed to even think about; confessional, intimate, insightful and hilarious, "Philophobia" remains a literate & musical revelation.
