Belle and Sebastian in Washington D.C. - March 2006

Another Resurrected Show!!!
A Favorite Band - Live in the USA

Belle & Sebastian are a Scottish indie pop band formed in Glasgow in January 1996. After releasing a number of albums and EPs on Jeepster Records, they are now signed to Rough Trade Records in the United Kingdom and Matador Records in the United States.

While their early sound was commonly filed under "twee pop", a description the band have rejected, Belle & Sebastian have much in common with influential indie bands such as The Smiths and Felt, and also take in other influences, such as northern soul and funk, as well as a sense of irony and humour, that are not usually associated with twee. Audiogalaxy classified Belle & Sebastian music as chamber pop, as they used instruments not very common in pop such as flute, cello or trumpet. (With thanks to Wikipedia.)

The current members of the band are:

I love Belle and Sebastian! I remember when NPR posted this on their website. Do you happen to also have Women's Realm? Thanks for posting the concert!

A. Where is the 11th track? B. It would have been helpful to have this in a zip file. C. Thank you!

Track 11 was accidentally left out. It's Dogs on Wheels. I have added it for you.

This post was supposed to be torn down a least two months ago, I forgot to retire these. There will be no zip file added - and the show will be retired by the end of the week.

Hope you enjoy the show.
