Original Belle & Sebastian bass player Stuart David will write a memoir about founding the band and his time as a member.

Antonia Hodgson, the editor-in-chief of the book’s publisher Little, Brown, told the Bookseller, “The proposal for 'In the All-Night Cafe' is wonderful – evocative, smartly observed and brimming with warmth and wit. It's a fascinating, intimate account of the band's early years that also has a lot to say about creativity, persistence and friendship.”

The book, titled “In the All-Night Café,” is planned to be released in 2015. The book will focus on the inception of the band and their first album release.

David is also the author of two novels, 2001’s “The Peacock Manifesto” and 1999’s “Nalda Said.”

The musician also contributed vocals, piano, and other guitar playing to some of Belle & Sebastian’s songs and left the band in 2000. He is the lead singer of the band Looper, which also includes his wife, Karn David, guitar player Ronnie Black, and Scott Twynholm on drums.

Belle & Sebastian’s current lineup consists of Murdoch, guitar player Stevie Jackson, keyboard and guitar player Sarah Martin, guitar and bass player Bobby Kildea, bass and trumpet player Mick Cooke, keyboard player Chris Geddes, and drum player Richard Colburn. Their latest album, “Belle and Sebastian Write About Love,” was released in 2010.
