Advent Calendar 2010 – Day Fifteen – Aidan Moffat & Malcolm Middleton


Day fifteen, doesn’t time fly? Only nine more days to go after this – duh – so if you have a Christmas song up your sleeve that you are longing to have included you’d better get a move on.

Today is another three for the price of one day. Aidan Moffat and Malcolm Middleton should need no introductions by now, either individually or as Arab Strap.
One song from each then and one from Arab Strap.
I wrote a bit about this particular song the other day when we had Now Wakes The Sea performing it, so if you want to read me over analyse a cover version you can find that here. This version was recorded for a radio session and features the lovely Lauren Laverne on backing vocals.
From Malcolm we have a live version of Burst Noel, taken from the Long, Dark Night half of his rather excellent double live album that came out recently.
Rounding things off we have Aidan Moffat & The Best-Ofs.
