Biography

BACKGROUND: Lead singer of Belle & Sebastian. Scotland’s greatest poet comes from Ayr. That’s probably not all Stuart has in common with Robbie Burns, but I’m damned if I know what else. Both guys I suppose. Stuart moved up to Glasgow at a tender age, just missing the first Scottish post-punk explosion, and having to wait a few years for the next one. The next few years were spent dabbling in all sorts of nonsense; DJing, promoting concerts, working in a record store, selling bacon door-to-door, running marathons, and trying and abandoning various courses at University, in the days when you were allowed to do that sort of thing. At some point during all this, he seems to have learned to write songs, although I don’t think even he knows the exact point.

NICKNAME(s): Stewpot.

EDUCATION: This serial student never quite consummated his relationship with tertiary education, despite three serious flirtations. Probably will when he’s 60, just to take advantage of campus laundry facilities.

ATTRIBUTES: Competitive; loyal; Diplomatic

PUNCTUALITY: Pretty good. He’ll leave it damn late for planes, trains, gigs etc, but (touch wood) he’ll never miss them.

SAMPLE QUOTE: “Bawbag? It’s a word. You use it. Triple word score. Fifty-four points.”
