I'll make no apologies for this, but Belle & Sebastian are likely to feature quite a few times as this series unfolds in the weeks and months ahead.
I'm really not sure which of their many singles/EPs is really my personal favourite as it depends largely on my mood. When I did my rundown of my all-time favourite singles back in 2008 it was the very failure to single out (if you'll pardon the pun) one 45 by B&S that stopped me finding a place for them in the rundown.
But...... if I was forced by torture to choose one single then it would be the one that sounded so different from anything else they had done up until the point when Legal Man was released in May 2000. And for being the song that finally got them on Top Of The Pops:-
mp3 : Belle & Sebastian - Legal Man
mp3 : Belle & Sebastian - Judy Is A Dickslap
mp3 : Belle & Sebastian - Winter Wooskie
I was at a clubnight last Saturday night and saw with my own eyes that Stuart Murdoch still dances in that same distinctive and stylish way.
Oh and there's an obscure link to this song coming along tomorrow.....
