RM Hubbert's Thirteen Lost and Found has been announced on the long list as a Scottish Album of the Year 2013 (for albums released in 2012). Also announced is the release of a follow up to this amazing record, in October 2013, again on Chemikal Underground. To celebrate, Hubbert has announced special intimate launch shows in Glasgow and here in London's Slaughtered Lamb. RM Hubbert is a solo guitarist from Glasgow, Scotland. He writes music about love, death, friendship, mental illness and occasionally a dog called D Bone. It's not as depressing as the previous sentence suggests. A prolific live performer, Hubbert has released music under a variety of guises since 1993. It was El Hombre Trajeado's triptych of albums released between 1995 and 2005 though, that really put him on the musical map, earning swathes of critical acclaim and three Peel Sessions. He has gone on to support the likes of Nick Cave, Tortoise, Mogwai, Godspeed You Black Emperor, Franz Ferdinand and The Twilight Sad, as well as touring extensively around Europe in his own right. His most recent album, 'Thirteen Lost & Found', features collaborations with many Scottish musicians such as Aidan Moffat, Emma Pollock, Alasdair Roberts, and Luke Sutherland. "A revitalising downpour" THE WIRE "Technically dazzling and deeply moving" UNCUT "Delicate and beautiful" CLASH "Utterly captivating" THE LINE OF BEST FIT "We are lucky indeed to have this record" THE QUIETUS "Hubbert's a hell of a guitarist" DAILY EXPRESS
