A corny musician joke about drummers got here to life for Belle & Sebastian’s Richard Colburn this week, when the group’s bus driver regarded round, mentioned, “yup, everybody’s right here,” and pulled out of the car parking zone of a Walmart in Dickinson, North Dakota, leaving Colburn behind. “I used to be popping out of the Walmart, and he was coming into the Walmart, and he was waving very fortunately, in a superb temper,” frontman Stuart Murdoch tells The Present. “And that was the final time that we noticed him.”
It appears that evidently it took some time for Murdoch and firm to note Colburn was gone. Murdoch first tweeted about his disappearance from Maple Grove, Minnesota, which in line with Google Maps is a seven-hour drive from Dickinson:
Since Colburn went into the Walmart with out his telephone and it was late at evening, he apparently sat there for 4 hours ready for somebody to return get him earlier than saying ”fuck it” and checking into a close-by lodge. Ultimately, somebody responded to Murdoch’s SOS and gave Colburn a journey to the Bismarck airport, the place he caught a flight to Minneapolis. He even made it on time to the gig on the Palace Theatre in St. Paul that evening:
Whereas this may look like an act of twee passive aggression—The Present host Mary Lucia even jokes about it in her interview with Murdoch, saying, “that’s one approach to do away with a drummer”—Murdoch says it was merely a whimsical accident. And to be truthful, Belle & Sebastian has extra members than your common band, “so it’s possibly not stunning that one thing like this occurred,” as Murdoch places it. Anyway, steps have been taken to make sure it doesn’t occur once more:
Belle & Sebastian’s new single, “Somebody Is Off The Bus, Please Heed My Signal,” is presumably forthcoming.
