Twenty-one years after its initial release, Arab Strap’s second album ‘Philophobia’ is reissued on vinyl, having been out of print for twenty years.

The 2LP heavyweight vinyl comes in a wide-spined sleeve and includes a digital download card.

‘Philophobia’ was recorded on the outskirts of Glasgow in the early incarnation of CHEM19 Studios with engineer/producer Paul Savage and at Cava Studios in Glasgow with engineer Geoff Allan.

Initially released in 1998, it was the follow up to the band’s 1996 debut ‘The Week Never Starts Round Here’.

Instrumentally ambitious, ‘Philophobia’ is adorned with sepulchral guitar, trumpet, cello and Scottish rainfall, providing a most beautiful backdrop to Aidan Moffat’s bold lyrical presentation as he articulates experiences most of us are too embarrassed to even think about; confessional, intimate, insightful and hilarious, ‘Philophobia’ remains a literate & musical revelation.

‘Philophobia’ – (from Greek: “φιλέω-φιλώ” – love – and “φοβία” – phobia), is the fear of falling in love / emotional attachment.
