Arab Strap once released a gem of a song called ‘General Plea to a Girlfriend’ which contained the following lyrics:
I can’t make boasts about my body.
The workmanship is somewhat shoddy.
Sometimes I overwork my gob.
Can’t buy you gifts I’ve got no job.
So it may surprise you to learn that Aidan Moffat, the miserable-voiced vocalist of the band has a sex and love column in new online mag The Quietus.
It will surprise you even more to learn that his column is an amazing piece of genius. In one response he tells someone writing in about a troublesome open relationship:
“I’ll be honest with you, James, I think you people are fucked in the head.” Priceless.
