Boomkat Product Review:
This project is the brainchild of Idlewild's Roddy Woomble, who set about bringing together some of Scotland's pre-eminent talents in both the literary and music worlds. The assembled cast of writers were commissioned to produce original lyrics for the various musicians to interpret as they saw fit. There are certainly big names from both camps, including such luminaries as Ian Rankin, Edwin Morgan, Alasdair Gray and Rody Gorman propping up the literary end, and Vashti Bunyan, Alasdair Roberts, Norman Blake, Sons & Daughters and Malcolm Middleton among others, representing the musicians. The various matches result in understandably mixed results, but some pairings work a treat. Ian Rankin's collaboration with Aidan Moffat (of Arab Strap notoriety) is especially successful. A compelling, thoroughly admirable project this, and it's put together rather nicely too, with a beautiful lyrics booklet and an explanatory note by Mr Woomble.
