With the end of the band came this exhaustive collection of rarities, newly recorded versions, Peel Sessions and outtakes - 10 Years Of Tears. This album is much, much more than a repository for previously unreleased tracks though - it spectacularly charts the creative development of a band that began in a flurry of barely controlled invention and went on to define a genre almost all of their own...
Eighteen tracks long and packed full of liner notes and scans of historic Arab Strap paraphernalia, 10 Years Of Tears is the final chapter in the career of one the UK's most unique acts.
Pointless Trivia: The cover image was shot in the basement of Glasgow's Nice N' Sleazy's.
