With absolutely no fanfare whatsoever Belle and Sebastian pitched up in Dunfermline and played to a packed Alhambra last night. Stuart Murdoch, who sang pretty well despite struggling with a cold, acknowledged that the band seldom travelled to the ‘east coast’ but gave no explanation as to why this gig was happening, unheralded and sandwiched between major international dates. Backed by a string quartet and playing brilliantly on instruments borrowed from Mogwai after theirs failed to make it back from Turkey, the band gave a storming performance of mainly vintage Belle and Sebastian tunes that delighted the heavily bearded and bespectacled audience: an excellent night for live music in Dunfermline.
