2 - ARAB STRAP - THE WEEK NEVER STARTS ROUND HERE - (LP) 
1972


The year 1996 saw the release of Arab Straps first single, "The First Big Weekend," and debut album The Week Never Starts Round Here. Into an underground rock milieu preoccupied at the time with slo-core, math rock, and all things Pet Sounds, the duo of Malcolm Middleton and Aidan Moffat couldnt have sounded more alien.In many ways, The Week Never Starts Round Here bears all the marks of a debut: its raw, unguarded, and crammed with ideas. It also firmly establishes the particular set-up that would define Arab Straps sound over the course of eleven years, with Middleton handling the music while Moffat provides the vocals and lyrics. Even this division of labor-more common to rap music than to the shoegazers and increasingly ubiquitous "collectives" of indie rock-seemed to defy expectations.The sound of Arab Strap is a distinct brand of existential miserablism. Middletons cleverly arranged foundation of nocturnal guitars and rudimentary drum machines provides a canvas for Moffat to relay, in a thick Scottish dialect, his many sloshed, candid confessions. Long before artists like Mike Skinner chronicled the picaresque days of lads getting pissed and getting laid, Arab Straps vivid tales of lovers, lager and shame were being broadcast on college stations everywhere. The Week Never Starts Round Here is an album full of drugged-up kisses and dried up egos; it chronicles the conquests and knockbacks of weekends that last forever, and it does so unapologetically, poetically, and profanely. Indie rock would never be the same.
