AidanÃ¯Â¿Â½s lyric writing continues to stand head and shoulders above his peers; with this album, against WellsÃ¯Â¿Â½ subtly nuanced backdrops, MoffatÃ¯Â¿Â½s lyrics truly shine. A modern laureate part-Bukowsi, part- Cutler, AidanÃ¯Â¿Â½s observations on ageing and reminiscences of youth are funny, melancholy, filthy and at times profoundly moving.
With his extraordinary capacity with lyrics, Aidan Moffat could and should be regarded alongside Nick Cave, Elvis Costello and Tom Waits. The album will particularly appeal to the 30+ age group and discerning music fan coming to AidanÃ¯Â¿Â½s work for the first time.
The cover art / portraits were produced by Frank Quitely, the world renowned comic book artist famous for his work with Grant Morrison on Ã¯Â¿Â½New X-MenÃ¯Â¿Â½, Ã¯Â¿Â½We3Ã¯Â¿Â½ and Ã¯Â¿Â½Batman & RobinÃ¯Â¿Â½.
