Belle & Sebastian

Redirected from Belle and Sebastian

Belle and Sebastian is a British pop band formed in Glasgow, January 1996, under the aegis of a training scheme and music business course. Built mostly around the creative mind of Stuart Murdoch, their first album, Tigermilk[?] was recorded as part of the course and released on the independent Electric Honey label. Signing for the (slightly) larger Jeepster Records they released the album If You're Feeling Sinister in 1996 and a sequence of EPs through 1997. Their third album, The Boy with the Arab Strap(1998), was a top 20 hit in the UK, and the same year the band were proclaimed Best Newcomers at the Brit Awards[?].

Presenting a slightly fey image to the public at large, Belle and Sebastian's bittersweet love songs inspire a fanatical loyalty amongst their fans, not dissimilar to that experienced by The Smiths during their heyday.
