Belle and Sebastian - Lazy Line Painter Jane

Belle and Sebastian - Lazy Line Painter Jane

Lazy Line Painter Jane, #5 in the 1997 Festive Fifty and #31 in the all-time 2000 Festive Fifty.

Belle & Sebastian are an indie pop band formed in Glasgow in January 1996. They are often compared with acts such as The Smiths and Nick Drake. The name "Belle & Sebastian" comes from Belle et Sébastien, a 1965 children's book by French writer Cécile Aubry later adapted for television and for anime. Though consistently lauded by critics, Belle & Sebastian's "wistful pop" has enjoyed only 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. (Read more at Wikipedia.)

Festive Fifty Entries

Belle & Sebastian were the 17th most successful act in the history of Festive Fifty during Peel's lifetime, according to Mark Whitby in The Festive Fifty (Nevin Publishing, pg 145), using David Gedge's formula of one point for a 50th placing and 50 points for a chart-topper, additionally weighted to discount the effect of multiple entries of the same song in all-time lists.
