Belle & Sebastian - White Collar Boy

Today Tune Of The Day will check out a few bands that plays at the Popaganda festival this weekend on Friday and Saturday, where i'm of course will be working on :) So we will follow this festival and wrap it up on Sunday with a small review and hopefully some pictures.

Today is a bit special as my youngest daughter is having her 4th birthday, so this evening will be all for the family and i will be full of cookies, cakes, lemonade and play with some pink balloons.

See below for the setlists of artists. We start today and check up on of the bands that will play on friday at the bigstage. So first out is Belle and Sebastian who are an indie pop band formed in Glasgow in January 1996. Belle and Sebastian are often compared to influential indie bands such as The Smiths, as well as classic acts such as Love, Bob Dylan and Nick Drake. The name Belle & Sebastian is inspired by Belle et Sébastien, a children's book by French writer Cécile Aubry. Lauded by critics, Belle & Sebastian's "wistful pop" has nevertheless enjoyed only limited commercial success.



Todays tune "White Collar Boy" is the third single lifted from the Belle & Sebastian's The Life Pursuit. The track was released on 26 June 2006 on Rough Trade Records, and was produced by Tony Hoffer. Despite its mainstream "electro-vibe" appeal, it failed to make the top 40, only scraping in at #45. It is the band's first single not to make the Top 40 since "Lazy Line Painter Jane". The model on the cover is Catherine Ireton, who later became the lead vocalist for Stuart Murdoch's God Help the Girl project.
