Belle Motions


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.

Belle Motions sole recording ‘Living‘ was included on Failsafe RecordsBiding Out Time’ compilation.

David Toland also played with The Playthings, Springloader, Chicane, and Future Stupid.
