Info and Intro

They are an Indie/Pop act, who formed out of Glasgow in 1996.

The name "Belle and Sebastian" comes from "Belle et Sébastien", a 1965 children's book by French writer Cécile Aubry later adapted for television.

Even though they have been constantly raved about by critics, Belle and Sebastian's "wistful pop" has enjoyed only a limited commercial success.

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.
