Come see Stevie Jackson of Belle and Sebastian here at The Living Room on Tuesday, August 28th at 10pm. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased here.
BACKGROUND: It was a disillusioned Stevie Jackson that first saw Stuart Murdoch performing at Open Mic night at The Halt Bar in Glasgow. Stevie‚Äôs band, The Moondials, had recently split after struggling to realise their ambitions. The Erskine-born guitarist was set to embark upon a career as an Assistant Occupational Therapist, and reluctantly agreed to play guitar for Murdoch, while insisting he had no interest in joining another band. One successful album and a few gigs later, and Stevie remembered what had made him pick up the guitar all these years ago: the chicks.
NICKNAME(s): Stevie Reverb, Action Jackson, Jacko.
EDUCATION: , but it doesn‚Äôt seem that important really. With his encyclopaedic knowledge of ‚Äė60s and ‚Äė70s pop culture, it‚Äôs hard to imagine there‚Äôs room for much else up there.
ATTRIBUTES: Charming; focused; understanding.
PUNCTUALITY: Improved over the years, albeit from a poor start. Always genuinely sorry if late.
SAMPLE QUOTE: ‚ÄúI haven‚Äôt got to play my guitar since ‚ÄúTigermilk‚ÄĚ‚ÄĚ.
FINEST MOMENT: Buying Ronnie Wood a drink.
MOST LIKELY TO: Fall asleep behind the desk in the studio. Wear a suit. Know a fact about The Beatles. Play at a wedding. Remove his glasses seductively, then put them back on. Go to the gym. Sit really far forward in his seat while driving. Have an eye, hell, two eyes for the ladies. Ask for a bit more reverb. Go to see Bob Dylan live. Be confused for Walter Matthau. Remember a ‚Äė70s TV show.
