Read ☆ Belle and Sebastian Just a Modern Rock Story 109 Ersonal and creative curve With all original interviews and personal photos from the band Belle and Sebastian Just A Modern Rock Story is the definitive account of the clandestine world and continuing rise of the uniue and fascinating musical phenomenon that is Belle and Sebasti. I m an ardent BS fan and to be honest I was a little disappointed with this book I was grateful for the information Whitelaw gave but his tone felt facetious to me and I was annoyed by how much he focused on the relationship between Stuart and Isobel I definitely think it s a worthwhile read if you re a fan of the band but I wouldn t read it based on literary merit Maybe I m being too critical considering I read it a few years ago I guess I ll just have to read it again to see if my thoughts have changed
