Belle & Sebastian

The song opens with an electric keyboard riff that Ray Manzarek would have been partial to. But then ‘The Boy With The Arab Strap’ features a bass guitar, handclaps, flute, piano, drums, more organ, acoustic guitars – all laced with a poppy melody. For that, singer-songwriter Stuart Murdoch needed several hands and Belle and Sebastian’s were at the height of their powers in 1998.
