Yes, you read it right: Glaswegians Moffat and Middleton are back together after five years, though without reviving their previous shared project. The couple reunited early 2010 to finish the recording of “Daughters of Darkness”, an unreleased track for “Scenes Of A Sexual Nature”, the Arab Strap box set anthology. Now they're back under their own names with an intriguing version of “ Two Cousins ”, Slow Club's most recent single. It was Moffat who was asked for a remix, but in the end they opted for a reinterpretation. “it’s not an Arab Strap performance as such, rather it’s the two guys who used to be Arab Strap recording their own, informed pastiche; think of it as an extremely accurate tribute band,” Moffat said.
