3. Winter Wooskie - Belle And Sebastian

Product Description


Those wacky Belle & Sebastian kids, apparently killing time between exceedingly sensitive art-pop albums, toss out a smirking ode to legal professionals that's awash in fake sitar licks and chipper Mamas & the Papas harmonies. Along with the title track, we also get the thankfully instrumental "Judy Is a Dick Slap" and the Bacharach-tinged "Winter Wooskie." The latter, with its wistful piano, airy vocals, and innocent penny whistle, is the closest thing to what we've come to expect from the U.K.'s most refined pop band. On reflection, this EP is a bit of a throwaway, really, but if you're a Belle & Sebastian fan, you'll want to own it. --Bill Forman

5.0 out of 5 stars The prequal to Dear Catastrophe Waitress Nov. 21 2003
Format:Audio CD
Legal man is just too damn fun. I love it. Makes me wanna roll around in a field of dasies and take all my white shirts and tie-dye them!
Judy Is a Dick Slap... GREAT title... GREAT instrumental. Love it to pieces. Very groovy and makes ya want to shake my thang...
Winter Wooskie is just too damn CUTE. I think it's the best song on this single/EP.
Overall, I consider this single/EP a glimpse into one of their best albums, Dear Catastrophe Waitress. It has the studioized feel and has a very fun feel to it. If you like DCW, you'll love this... vice versa.

4.0 out of 5 stars Belle Slaps One Together Oct. 15 2002
Format:Audio CD
The Legal Man cd single is a solid effort saved by the title track. "Legal Man" is a slice of 60's pop with a bouncy beat and sprightly vocals. "Judy Is A Slap Dick" is a fairly weak instrumental and "Winter Wooksie" has a sweet melody but tries a little too hard to be cute.

5.0 out of 5 stars How I love this band...let me count the ways. Oct. 30 2001
Format:Audio CD
i love belle and sebastian...and this little quirky EP is fantastic. it's not your typical b&s faire; legalman is a 60s-inspired britpop tour de force complete with flighty female accompaniment. the oddly-named "judy is a dickslap" is an instrumental romp, with a pretty piano interlude at the end. (yes, there is a pretty part to "judy is a dickslap.") winter wooskie is probably the most "normal" b&s song, with the comfortable rolling piano syncopated beat.
if you're new to b&s, don't get this album: get "the boy with the arab strap," "tigermilk," or "fold your hands...." however, if you have a few of their albums, you must own this EP. get 3,942 of them now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soul... sweet northern soul. Oct. 16 2001
By Ape
Format:Audio CD
Legal man is a classy northern soul number. If you are a DJ this will fit into a soul or funk set very well! If you are a B&S head this a welcome break from the tedium of Stuart's melancholic vocals. A real soul saver! The flip "Judy is a Dick Slap" is another fun instrumental soul stomper filled with gurgling moogs and a ripping bass line. A real keeper... you won't be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff! June 11 2001
Format:Audio CD
Listening to "Legal Man," you wouldn't believe it was recorded only a year ago... very 60s. "L-O-V-E love, it's coming back, it's coming back. Get out of the office and into the springtime, get out of the city and into the springtime." Probably the song of 2000.

4.0 out of 5 stars a good listen May 27 2001
Format:Audio CD
I have not heard enough of this album to see how good it is, but from what I heard of it I think it going to be a very good album when it's finished.

actually i think all the albums of belle&sebatain are quite similar,i get a bit bored when listening to them successively. but "legal man" is quite a surprise to me coz it's v.interesting.so far the best album i think is "the boy with the abra strap". i doubt what the band can give me next time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprising Yet Infectious June 26 2000
By Borkus
Format:Audio CD
I have always found a dark and wicked sense of humor in some Belle and Sebastian songs - Legal Man brings out that sense of humor in musical form. According to other interviews with the band, the track was written as a "jam" and it has that feel - light, insubstantial, but very musical and very swinging. If you're looking for the tight, insightful songwriting , you may be a little disappointed. But if you're willing to have a little fun, you'll find this ep in your CD player quite often.
That last track is a more along the lines of B&S's other songs, though not one of their strongest.
