The inane blabberings of an admitted music addict. Thursday, October 21, Belle and Sebastian — Write About Love Before we get started, I should just say that sometimes music is just good to the point that it cannot be articulated properly in text. Instead of sitting here talking all kinds of profanities and vague terms, I will instead make this one of my laziest reviews ever.
Sensible is overrated sometime.
We played a few gigs around that time, but pretty much the main project was recording. We recorded almost an album worth of stuff at the start ofbut the idea was that we were looking for singles, so the tracks eventually came together on a sequence of EPs.
So that summer, when the drama society, the bridge club and coffee mornings were all off on holiday, we parked a broadcast mobile studio in the street outside, and began our third LP.
The process turned out to be quite different to the previous two. The original idea for the band was lost in time by LP3. I think one of the first things that happened was that Isobel decided she was going to play bass on Lazy Line Painter Jane.
The bass was a stringed instrument after all, and was roughly in the same register as the cello — so that was that. He was happy to watch that particular butterfly flapping her silvery wings, and the chain reaction that followed.
He just moved one seat over, opened his book, and rubbed his chin. But suffice to say that it would be a positive thing, and that this was a particularly rich period for me, it being suddenly full of these 7 others where before there had been only dreams and a few lost chords.
There was a need for these personalities to be expressed — that was clear enough. Expressed through their own compositions. And that worked fine, we all liked that. So Stevie and Isobel were encouraged to contribute songs to our next recording plans.
Now, instead of the previously ten songs authored by me, we had a mix. That was ok, because the record took months to make, a far cry from Sinister and Tigermilk. I think I felt bad about it at the time, always apologising to the label for spending so much money.
Mick, trumpeter supreme, and eventually guitar and bass too, threw his filthy lot in with us at this time — he joined the band as a full time member. We made a commemorative mug. In essence, we were producing the records ourselves.
We had our engineer Tony Doogan, who, to his eternal credit, went to crazy lengths to realise our daft requests on the road to higher or in some cases, lower fidelities. It was, I think, just the chance to create music — that was enough for us.
We were given this great chance, we had fallen in with each other quite unexpectedly. In the last 15 of those years, since aroundwe started to take record companies and the outside world more seriously.
And where it starts is waking up with a groove, or a dream, or something that you feel you have to say, that gets wrapped around a tune, that gets taken to the band, that gets tossed around in the room, then taken into the studio before it feels old.
Or just tell me to go get another job.
I can report that the drive to make new and terrific music is thankfully alive and palpable, and I will never stop fighting to get it made.
We were all about band days-out back then, so we jumped in cars and drove down to deepest Ayrshire. It was one of those rare days that makes you feel that Scotland is the best place on earth.The Belle and Sebastian charm is that they write stories within songs, looking at life in a skewed way, about the strays of the world, a woman on the bus, the bullied, the scared and the love sick.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place. The group reunite with producer Tony Hoffer in Los Angeles for Belle and Sebastian Write About Love, which tones down the accessible pop energy of recent albums while still maintaining their AM.
