Need satisfaction? Get some Stevie Jackson - Belle and Sebastian guitarist to crank the reverb for November 2011 tour
For those in the Belle and Sebastian clique, Stevie Jackson is a bit of a figurehead, not only for his guitar-playing contributions to said band, but also his songwriting prowess. Having previously been a member of struggling and now-defunct indie-band, The Moondials, Stevie 'Reverb' Jackson was eventually coerced by Stuart Murdoch to join his band instead.
After two modestly successful albums in "Tigermilk" and "If You're Feeling Sinister", the role of songwriting within Belle & Sebastian spread out to other members, including Jackson whose first written and vocalised fruits were "Seymour Stein" and "Chickfactor" on "The Boy With The Arab Strap", as well as the single, "Jonathan David".
Now with a solo album in the pipeline, titled '(I Can't Get No) Stevie Jackson', Jackson has announced his very own solo jaunt around the UK. Expect to hear songs from the new album and (surely) a few from the B&S canon. You can expect tickets to shift quickly!
First stop on the tour will be Newcastle on 3rd November, followed by Manchester, Birmingham, London, Brighton, Bristol and Southsea on the 13th. Stevie then heads overseas for a few weeks before returning with a hometown show at King Tut's in Glasgow on 25th November. Tickets are on sale now, priced at £12 (£15 for Heaven in London).
