We’re pleased to announce that This Is Tmrw are welcoming Malcolm Middleton to the Hare & Hounds this December. The Scottish guitarist and songwriter is best known for his work with Aidan Moffat in Scottish rock legends ARAB STRAP, and has since established himself as a solo artist in the indie genre with six albums, releasing music under his own name as well as the alias HUMAN DON’T BE ANGRY. His most recent album, Summer of ’13, included singles such as ‘Steps’, and his forthcoming album ‘BANANAS’ will be released on 28th September on Triassic Tusk Records.
On ‘BANANAS’ Malcolm has teamed up with the acclaimed not-jazz trio JEANSY, JONES & SMILLIE (David Jeans DRUMS, Stevie Jones DOUBLE BASS and Graeme Smillie PIANO) to produce an album that is both scathing and nice. With new songs like “BUZZ LIGHTYEAR HELMET”, “LOVE IS A MOMENTARY LAPSE IN SELF-LOATHING” and “PISS OFF LIFE, JUST KILL ME NOW” (that last one is a joke), Malcolm continues to report back from the depths of the everyday whilst attempting to monetise HELL. Adding a dose of saccharine to the mix, the Samaratinesque choir of Kenny Anderson (KING CREOSOTE), Jenny Reeve (BDY_PRTS) and Dan Wilson (WITHERED HAND) courageously manage to pull Malcolm back from the brink of many a teetering jont just as he’s about to disappear up his own proverbial.
Check out ‘Devil & the Angel’ from his live set here:
