Very nice to see that on August 17th Chemikal Underground will reissue Arab Strap’s excellent first two albums – The Week Never Starts Round Here and Philophobia. The CD reissues of these albums are double CD’s, with each album including a BBC Peel Session and BBC recording of two live performances.
The band’s first two Peel Sessions (March 1997 & March 1998)
Their first ever gig in its entirety, recorded for the Peel Show at King Tuts Wah Wah Hut (October 1996).
Arab Strap’s six track live set from T in the Park 1998
