(I Can’t Get No) Stevie Jackson

Fans of Belle & Sebastian’s gleeful Glaswegian sadness will be overjoyed (a paradox!) by the news that Stevie Jackson, the band’s guitarist, is striking out on his own. The album, out July 3, entitled in a Jaggerian tone (I Can’t Get No) Stevie Jackson, is a poppy meditation on many of the same issues about which Belle & Sebastian murmured, but the question as to where all the hooks came from has been settled: it was Stevie all along. In the run-up to the release, Mr. Jackson released this video, which combines elements of Pavement’s "Cut Your Hair," delicious toasties, and more bowl cuts than a Monkees movie.
