Arab Strap - Mad For Sadness (1999)

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
A live album from Scotland's finest. Recorded in London in
1998, 'Mad For Sadness' is culled primarily from songs of
their 2nd album 'Philophobia',as well as material from
singles/eps and one track of 1996's 'The Week Never Starts
Round Here'. This album can unite a room full of music
partisans, intoxicating them with it's lush hypnotic soundscapes
and staggeringly honest and beautiful lyrics. I neverely
always hate 'Live' albums but this is Essential Stuff and from
a band named after a sexual device that props up problematic
erections. Great.
