Exclusive: Alasdair Roberts records ‘Seagulls, Belts’ for Backseat Mafia live in session



Nearly 20 years after dropping his Appendix Out moniker, the name he used for his early output that put him firmly on the Folk map, Alasdair Roberts revisited it for his recent album ‘The Songs of My Boyhood’, which came out digitally recently on the acclaimed Drag City label.

Mixing things up somewhere between Scottish folk and indie rock, Appendix Out put Alasdair out there as one of the leading songwriters of his time, and with hindsight, he looked back over this cannon of work and selected a handful for reworking.

Amongst the number was ‘Seagull, Belts’, taken from 1997’s The Rye Bears A Poison, which Alasdair has kindly recorded live in one of our At Home Sessions. It’s a beautifully melancholy track, accompanied by some deft and equally lovely picked guitar lines. Interspersed is film that Alasdair shot himself of Cornwall.
