Former Arab Strap Scotsman Malcolm Middleton - he will make it up to you with lots of steak McCoys - is to play a number of Fopp stores in February and March.
Middleton releases his third solo album, and first for new(ish) label Full Time Hobby, on February 26. A Brighter Beat is the record's title, and it's sure to be reviewed on these pages before long.
Each of the Fopp instores is a free-entry event, but attendees must get a wristband from the store in question on the day of the gig. Said 'tickets' are available for collection from 9am each morning.
