Richard Colburn (Belle and Sebastian)

Belle and Sebastian drummer Richard Colburn joins me today, on his former life as a semi-professional snooker player, the chance meeting that led to joining the band, the recording and release of their debut Tigermilk - and recording new album A Bit Of Previous at their self-built Glasgow studio.

Pre-order the album and catch them on tour this year:

Thinking of going to 2000 Trees Festival 6-9 July in Cheltenham, headlined by IDLES, Jimmy Eat World, Thrice and Turnstile + so many more great bands?
