    [Belle and Sebastian Just a Modern Rock Story] EBOOK / PDF Well It kinda sucked I was really into it at the start but the I ‘learnt’ it’s all pretty biased accounts of what happened so how much truth there is in it I’m not 100% about them the it kind of made me think these guys are dicks And I love Belle Sebastian I don’t want to hate them or think they’re stuck up mean bastards So yeah this book really wasn’t what I was hoping it would be Isobel comes off super badly in it he writes

Belle and Sebastian Just a Modern Rock Story review ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB Evotion not seen since the The Smiths Their continuing desire to push the boundaries of their vision has resulted in some of the most essential and idiosyncratic records of recent times In this the first biography of Belle and Sebastian Paul Whitelaw traces their unpredictable p. Glasgow writer Paul Whitelaw offers the first Belle Sebastian biography with his 2005 book As a first band biography it is complete in discussing the band both as individual band members as well as the band as a whole Whitelaw interviewed most of the members of BS and had access to some of Stuart Murdoch s correspondence The problem with a lot of music biographies is that they are generally written by some of the biggest fans On one hand this allows them access to a lot of the inner workings of the members thoughts on the other hand as in the case here with Whitelaw the author is completely biased and clearly chooses his favorites Often Whitelaw managed to also be such an incredible ass kisser that it made me wince a favorite word of his throughout the textThe relationship between Stuart Murdoch and Isobel Campbell is one that fans of BS have been intrigued by since the beginning As Whitelaw points out both Stuart and Isobel were just as confused by the relationship as well Whitelaw spend a considerable amount of time discussing their relationship to the point of distraction He habitually jumped around in his chronology making the reading confusing when at times it felt like he repeated a lot of the same information Whitelaw s fascination with the curious boy Stuart Murdoch was possibly the most frustrating part to read particularly when it came to knocking Isobel Campbell down a few stairs in the process As an innocent bystander as myself I can say that I feel both Stuart and Isobel were both whiny and probably deserved each other but Stuart s take on the relationship as is typical in most band relationships is a little harsher than is perhaps necessaryAnd for any fan of BS how important is the relationship really in comparison to the music Isobel went on to make incredible solo music and to work with the legendary in some circles Mark Lanegan Her music is of a different nature most of which is actually uite great It often felt that Whitelaw was personally offended when Isobel left the band for greener pastures I would have much preferred he removed his nose from Murdoch s butt and shown a little less judgment about the other members of the band other fans etc As far as journalistic writing goes unbias is still bestNot the worst bio I ve read but certainly not the best It could have been much better and everyone could have been shown in a less reverential and honest light despite Whitelaw s clear attemps at trying to portray it all so candidly
