Two singular Scottish talents, Aidan Moffat and RM Hubbart, teamed up recently to record Here Lies The Body, a new collaborative album.

Two singular Scottish talents, Aidan Moffat and RM Hubbart, teamed up recently to record Here Lies The Body, a new collaborative album.

Moffat is better known as the singer of the Arab Strap, who made six albums of full of morose and bleakly hilarious indie folk on the Chemikal Underground label in the late '90s and early noughties, before recording a self-titled comeback record in 2016.

RM Hubbert meanwhile is a guitarist and singer extraordinaire and another, albeit less well-known, veteran of the Glasgow DIY music scene. He performed with a number of acts including El Hombre Trajeado but now frequently is found playing acoustic guitar in a style that mixes flamenco and post-rock.

Here Lies The Body explores big themes: sex and death, plunging the depths of the human soul in a fashion that Moffat is well known for, but with elaborate musical arrangements spurred on by Hubbert and this new collaboration.

The duo will be performing music from Here Lies The Body and other works at their visit to The Grand Social.
