BELLE AND SEBASTIAN


The Glaswegian indie favourites are going on a bit of a European tour in April taking in cities across Sweden, Germany and Spain. But for fans in the UK, make sure to catch them when they play in Leeds and Leicester in June as it will be your only chance to see them in the North of England this year - and possibly the last time you will see them perform in the UK for a while.

For those of you who don't have much knowledge on Belle and Sebastian, let me give you an introduction into one of the leading Scottish bands of the nineties:

The band were formed in in Glasgow in 1996 and have gone on to release eight albums, seven EP's and seventeen singles. Their latest album 'Belle and Sebastian Write About Love' was released in October 2010 and reached the top ten charts, whilst their latest single 'I Want The World To Stop' from the album was released this year. The band have always been under the radar and never had much commercial success, music to the ears (excuse the pun) of their loyal fans who don't want the band to sell out and become mainstream. Part of the reason why they have such ardent supporters is because their music is of an acquired taste which is completely unique to other bands of a similar indie and folk-pop genre.

I am definitely very excited about seeing the band play as they always put in a great live performance, with their catchy tunes sticking in your head for days.

So don't forget to get your tickets before they go.

I am particularly looking forward to hearing my favourites:
