People and Questions Needed Next Week
Tue 03rd Aug - 2010

We are recording a mini TV show next week to introduce the world to some of our new songs. We require audience members, some armed with questions, for the recording which will take place on Wednesday 11th August in Glasgow. If you would like to take part please e-mail here with 'Audience' in the title if you want to be in the audience only or 'Questions' in the title if you have something you want to ask in person.

Please reply by close of play on Friday (6th) and let us know where you live. We guess most people will be local, but we may be able to help a few people travel from further afield in the UK if the questions are good. Depending on the response we may need to select the audience at random - but we'll let you know. . .

One thing to note if that there is a rough dress code: we're thinking 1971, undergraduate, muted colours, turtle necks, slacks, no crazy patterns and top buttons undone. The usual deal!

I got this in my email box today:

Quote :
Hello folks,

Here's a bit of news for you in case you haven't visited the website today. We can now reveal to you that the new album is called 'Belle and Sebastian Write About Love'. We won't unveil the artwork quite yet but while designing the sleeve Stuart asked Kim from Glasgow band Zoey Van Goey to write the title in chalk in some secluded spots around the city of Glasgow. Click here to see her on the splash page of the website.

We thought it might be fun if you tried the same thing, and either filmed yourself writing it or got someone to take a picture (we'd like to see you doing your work!). You could then upload them to our Flickr group (click here) for everyone to see. To do this you will need to sign up to Flickr if you are not already a member, and join the group.

We'll choose some of the most scenic, artistic, and elaborate ones and present the best submissions with a trophy of some sort! It will be worthwhile entering a picture or some footage as we hope to use a lot of them in gallery form, in the B&S TV show we are making just now.

So, just to be exact, we want you to take pictures of or film yourself writing 'Write About Love' or 'Belle and Sebastian Write About Love', in secret or public places around the town you live in.

Please remember to only use chalk or something non-permanent!

Also, just arrived in the post today are the magnificent new 'Dog on Wheels' brooches which were designed by the ladies at Tatty Devine. Woof!

Ok, that's enough from us - looking forward to seeing your submissions.

B&S x

I'm thinking, as I live in Iowa and all, I should mow down a few acres of corn to spell 'Write About Love' and take a photo from a helicopter - now I just need to find a helicopter, and big tractor, and a farmer that doesn't mind me mowing down his crop.

Thought of that. Might do it still. But I've watered down my idea to just mowing the words into my back lawn. It's an excuse to let the grass grow really long (for proper contrast) during this heatwave.

God that guitar intro is wonderful. It's so frustrating that it just fades out. Really excited about this record and the gigs, most especially Bowlie 2.

Preorder details! Only 30 days til the release now.

US & Canada, get it from Matador (it's much cheaper than the UK release):
http://www.matadorrecords.com/store/index.php?catalog_id=539
And also preorders from Matador get a free 7" single that contains two non-album tracks. I preordered the CD AND LP, I wonder if I get two singles?

UK & Europe, get it from Rough Trade:
http://www.roughtrade.com/site/shop_detail.lasso?search_type=sku&sku=331081
But seriously, 15 pounds for the LP? I'm paying 13 USD from Matador and the enchange rate is nearly 1.5USD to 1GBP.

Of course, I'm guessing local shops will have this on release day as well. If you have local shops that carry independent labels, that is.

Oh yes, and some details RTS provides that I hadn't seen before:
Quote :
'belle and sebastian write about love' is the name of the new album from belle and sebastian, everyone's favorite indie darlings. this is the first belle and sebastian album since 'the life pursuit' back in 2006. adopting a more fluid approach than on the previous record, fourteen songs were recorded and mixed by the start of june, of which eleven feature on the cd and vinyl releases.
as ever, the record draws the band's internal songwriting strengths, but this time includes some guest performances. stuart murdoch wrote the majority of the songs on the album, while sarah martin takes lead vocals on her two contributions, 'i didn't see it coming' and 'i can see your future' and stevie jackson on his ('im not living in the real world'). in addition, norah jones contributes lead vocals to 'little lou, ugly jack, prophet john' (which also appears on her forthcoming album of duets and collaborations called 'featuring') and actress carey mulligan sings on 'write about love'. strings were added by la residents the section quartet.

Guess who my favorite actress in the whole damn world is? She's got a movie coming out this week: Never Let Me Go. Killer book if you've read it, and as the author was a producer/director on the movie, I'm guessing it's just as killer. Now I'm looking around for the dreaded "select theaters" that might be showing the film...

this photo is on the alexander 3rd bridge,the most beautiful in all of paris,the parisians are up in arms at this new art of the street of padlocking love messages to pieces of art in and around paris..the artists bridge is also slowly getting filled with these locks...the idea being that two lovers in a bid to keep each others heart,will put their names on a lock(some are quite professionally engraved)have a key each one will unlock,one will lock...then make a wish and throw the keys into the seinne.....i think its a romantic idea....but i can almost hear the grinders startin up for to cut their dreams in two,when autumn comes..............
