Vocalist Aidan Moffat and multi-instrumentalist Malcolm Middleton met in Falkirk, bonded over their mutual love for Drag City recording artists such as Smog and Will Oldham, and began a collaboration in 1995. The band is completed by violinist Jenny Reeve and cellist Stacey Sievewright. Arab Strap's marked characteristics include frank and forthright lyrics delivered in a Scottish brogue.

- LyricsSo that was the first big weekend of the summer
Starts thursday as usual with the canteen quiz and again no-one wins the big cash prize

Then on friday night we went through to the arches
- LyricsAnother blowhead disco
Another sniff of romance I'll forget

When you're at least fifty feet ahead?

And I'm that pissed I can't remember
What it was I said
