aidan moffat and r.m. hubbert Ghost Stories for Christmas (CD, £10.50)label: Rock Action
It’s the most wonderful time of the year and in the old tradition, Aidan Moffat and RM Hubbert invite you to gather round the fire for ‘Ghost Stories For Christmas’. The album began with an idea for a song - ‘A Ghost Story For Christmas’. Originally intended as a one-off, seasonal release, it proved such fun to write that soon they had enough songs for an EP. “Then, on a nice, sunny, summer morning, I phoned Hubby and suggested we just do a whole album,” says Moffat. The album also features their cover of Yazoo’s synth classic ‘Only You’, already a popular number in their live set. The cover versions are topped off with a sombre rendition of Mud’s 1974 hit, ‘Lonely This Christmas’.
