Richard Colburn: The joker in the pack. Born, raised and still resident in Perth, if Richard ever made good he’d be a local boy made good. Initially spurning his family’s musical tradition, Richard’s first foray into the world of entertainment was in the field of snooker. Sadly he failed to break into the upper echelons of the snooker world, and inspired by The Matchroom Mob’s work with Chas’n’Dave, he reluctantly accepted his destiny. He was a drummer.
Chris Geddes: Having a childhood split between Gloucestershire and Ayrshire doesn’t seem to have confused Beans too much. He joined Belle & Sebastian having perhaps the best musical pedigree of them all, his previous band having supported riot grrls The Voodoo Queens. Or possibly Mambo Taxi. Returning to study in Glasgow, following a brief exile in Colchester, the young communist was eventually approached to join B&S. During signing talks with Jeepster, he memorably laid down his terms: a pair of 24” flares, and a guarantee that the glory days would return to Celtic Park. He signed anyway. Ironically, it wasn’t until B&S left Jeepster that Celtic reached a European final. Makes you think
