The brainchild of Idlewild’s Roddy Woomble, ‘Ballads Of The Book’ began as a simple idea to bring together the literary talents of Scotland’s writing community with a diverse range of new and established recording artists.

This is the 18-track promo CD which includes the Trashcans’ interpretation of the Ali Smith poem ‘Half An Apple’ – a simple, bittersweet love song about keeping half an apple spare for a loved one who is gone.

This song was originally written for folk singer Kate Rusby, but eventually made its way into the hands of the Trashcans, who turned it into a melancholic ballad.

The slide guitar on this song is magic.

Oh yes, it sure is. The slide was played by Evil Graham Lee from the Triffids!
