Malcolm Middleton Artist Snapshot:

In 2003, Malcolm Middleton, the member of Arab Strap regularly credited with "most things musical," released the cumbersomely titled solo album 5:14 FLUOXYTINE SEAGULL ALCOHOL JOHN NICOTINE, issued through Chemikal Underground. Two years later, he followed it up with the more focused INTO THE WOODS, put out by the same label. Neither album was a tremendous departure from his work with Aidan Moffat (both lyrically and sonically), though the songwriting was occasionally more self-absorbed, oozing with self-doubt and heartache. After Arab Strap's amicable split, he continued to release well-received solo albums.

Album Description

Standard edition. 2008 album from one of the UK''s most cherished and prolific artists. Features six new self-penned tracks and three cover versions from this former member of Scotland''s Arab Strap. Comprising tracks written during the 2007 Brighter Beat sessions and a handful of cover versions, Sleight Of Heart bookends what Malcolm describes as his ''boo-hoo/way-hey! period'', using up all the leftovers and tying up the loose ends. Initially conceived as an acoustic LP, the album was recorded at Chem 19 Studios in Glasgow. Malcolm’s recording band (featuring Mogwai’s Barry Burns on piano, ex-Delgados man Paul Savage on drums, Stevie Jones on double bass and Jenny Reeve on violin and backing vocals) joined in when he got carried away. The covers on the album are fairly unpredictable. Here, a tortured version of Madonna’s "Stay" rubs shoulders with a lively take on King Creosote’s "Marguerita Red", and also Jackson C. Frank’s "Just Like Anything". Full Time.
