BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 23rd March 2017
To complement the 6 Music Festival, taking place this year in Glasgow, we repeat highlights of a series in which musician Davie Scott reveals the stories behind classic Scottish albums.
In this episode, first broadcast on BBC Radio Scotland in 2006, Davie looks at Belle and Sebastian's The Boy with the Arab Strap, released in 1998, which won them 'Best Newcomer' at the Brit Awards. We hear from the famously interview-shy collective about the making of the album, and also from crime writer Iain Rankin about his passion for their melancholy summertime sounds.
Belle and Sebastian are appearing at this year's 6 Music Festival.
