Belle And Sebastian
White Collar Boy
Belle and Sebastian are a band whose whole existence stands in accidental opposition to the conventional showbiz way of going about things. So, waiting until most people think they've got you pegged as fey cuties who will never make a better record than 'Tigermilk'/'Boy With The Arab Strap'/'If You're Feeling Sinister' (delete according to prejudice) and to then cut the feet out from under everyone with a record of such startling clarity, accomplishment and oomph as 'The Life Pursuit', really is beyond gratifying; it's nothing short of a revelation.
It's a record chock full of indie-disco-dancefloor-filling obvious singles, including this, the forthcoming track 'White Collar Boy', due for release on Rough Trade Records on June 26th.
It's time for a riot grrrl revolution.
