Artist: Belle & Sebastian

Album: Books EP

Appears On (Mixes): The Opposite Of Smoke Is Egg Whites, There Was A Pregnant Pause Before He Said "OK": The Best Of Belle & Sebastian

Song Notes: The Opposite Of Smoke Is Egg Whites: This is one of the B-sides to the Books EP (or, rather, a non-album A-side, with 2 B-sides being non-album, and one B-side taken from Dear Catastrophe Waitress, Belle & Sebastian's most recent and best album. "Your Cover's Blown" is actually quite different than most everything else they've done (aside from some of the tracks on Tigermilk like "Electronic Renaissance", and it's not even terribly like that one). The lyrics are a rough story, and my favorite verse is the one about the party that ends up going into a bit that sounds like "Paint It Black". Musically, it's all over the map, going from a more funk/disco type sound, to 60s psychedelica and to the standard B&S sound. It's long, but it doesn't get boring. And there's even a little bit of a false ending! - Rev. Syung Myung Me
