From their visit in Greece in 2002. They were programmed to play in an open theater but they brought the rain with them and we ended up seeing them in a big gym hall, at Goudi. It was a joyous concert, I knew all their songs by heart and I was one of the oldest people in there (still in my twenties! ) I had  the fun of my life (one of my top 5 concerts)

They are still active, actually Stuart Murdoch has recorded a wonderful album some years ago, under the name God help the girl, directed a film with the same name, (God help the girl), Steve Jackson has issued a delightful solo album that makes my daughters dance (this is the highest praise, I tell you they are very strict judges) and most of them are very busy with music side-projects too many to mention. Unfortunately from the original band three members have departed. Isobel Campbell, who has been very prolific and has issued about a dozen great albums (alone, as The Gentle Waves, with Bill Wells and with Mark Lanegan),  Stuart David who has issued some inspiring music as Looper and lately Mike Cooke who I had the chance to meet and photograph in Athens during the “Dear Catastrophe Waitress” promo interviews.
Give them a try, they won’t let you down!

    • I feel a bit jealous, you know, because I remember the thrill I felt when I first heard their music! Start with either “If you’re feeling sinister” LP or the extraordinary compilation of EPs, “Push barman to open old wounds”! Tomorrow it is going to be B&S for me as well! 😉 Happy listening!
