We’re loving some of your entries for the Albert Hall Exhibition. Please keep em coming and remember we’re looking for around 130 words on a b&s track of your choice, along with a photo or some image that you feel relates to the song/era. Here’s one that Alexandra Del-campo sent us – thank you Alexandra!
“Lazy Line Painter Jane”
I moved to Montreal the same summer I saw Belle & Sebastian live for
the first time. What can I say about my experience leaving the U.S.
for the first time? I smoked a lot of cigarettes. I slept on dry grass
parks during the day, my french was shy. I thought about men a lot. I
was happier than I’d been in a long time, everything far away. I drank
the sweet wine and stayed up late talking about my favorite melodies
and duets with other musical friends. This one is my favorite.
The picture enclosed is from a postcard I bought there and never sent.
She looks like the girl on Tigermilk.
If you have something to say about a b&s track, will you send it to us at [email protected] with the title ‘RAH Art’.
