Belle and Sebastian are a Scottish group that formed in 1996 in Glasgow. I recall reading about them in the music magazines of the time, like Spin and maybe Rolling Stone. 1996 was a down musical period for me – having just parted ways with my band the year before, and then marrying my wife, getting a “real” job and buying a house, I was doing other things than concentrating on music. My house was out in the suburbs where there wasn’t a good record store close, and this was just as the Internet was getting going so we didn’t have a way to preview albums. I read about them, but never heard them.
I’ll save my “when I heard them” story for my review. I’d like to hear how you heard of B&S and where/when you heard them. Gimme some stories!
Now – let’s get clubbing!
