The Belle Motions were a fine pop blast, strongly melodic and guitar led.
They didn’t make much of an impact locally but I remember enjoying the chiming guitar tones and melodies of this band. The band played with guitars handmade by Scott, and Wilson played an eight stringed Hagstrum, which featured a higher octave string next to each of the normal strings.
Ollie Scott is a world authority on Buster Keaton and has written a definitive book on him.
