How good is this track?
its bloody good aye, and philophobia is one hell of an album
how much i love it
I even have the t-shirt, oh yes.
but thought it more a girls shirt
but had very few shirts left at the final uk show, so it could well be sold out, its certainly not in the shop
I didn't bother with the farewell tour, as i hadn't been that impressed the last few times.
Philophobia is consistently superb.
And that's really all I have to say.
Arab Strap song by a long way.
Philophobia version is good but the live version from Mad For Sadness lp is head and shoulders above it.
"You can't get over your dead dog, it takes one to know one"
I'm gonna put it on now.

they asked for any acoustic requests. Being an Arab Strap gig, everyone was pretty quiet and shy. Being drunk, I wasn't and asked for this track.
My heart nearly melted, and Philophobia will always have a place in my heart that no other album will ever shift. Hearing that tambourine rattle on "Here we go"'s intro takes me back to my old bedroom and another decade every time...
Arab Strap once, at the Garage in 2006 and I nervously expected them to be shit.
But they were totally brilliant.
One of the best gigs I have ever been to infact. Despite the power going at one point.
