Glasweigan flamenco guitarist RM Hubbert is fast gaining some well deserved recognition, not only in Scotland but in the whole of Europe as a result of supporting post-rockers Mogwai on their current tour and also having supported Godspeed You! Black Emperor last winter. Hubbert himself started out in post-rock and is the ex-guitarist for El Hombre Trajeado, but his debut album First & Last takes a different direction as he experiments with instrumental acoustic music. His upcoming second album 'will be made up of a mix of solo guitar pieces and collaborations with some of my favourite musicians'; Franz Ferdinand's Alex Kapranos being one of them. A brilliantly modest musician, Hubbert will perform a short set in your own home for the price of a cooked meal. Listening to this album will make you realise just how good value that is.
