Bill Wells & Aidan Moffat - Everything’s Getting Older

An entertaining listening journey
Bill Wells & Aidan Moffat - Everything’s Getting Older
Having once been half of Arab Strap, Moffat has entered many manifestations since; this latest collaboration being an eight-year relationship, leading to this first bearing of fruit. Shaking off those old roots may not even be on Moffat’s agenda, but it is somehow important here that he hasn’t done so! The colloquial Scots drawl waxes lyrical with both cynical and sinister tales of sexual conquests and drunken mischief. Once daubed a “disgrace to Falkirk”, there remains a measure of affectionate contempt for that mantle. The net result, a tapestry through dark alleys and along river banks, makes for an entertaining listening journey.
