British Sea Power


#1

Is anyone interested in the new album? I really liked their first two albums then kind of stopped keeping up with what they did. I do like their latest song though.


#2

I’m interested! Thinking of going to see them in - wait for it - Edinburgh!


#3

Yeah, I loved the first 3 albums but just stopped keeping tabs after that much like yourself. I like the single that’s getting played, reckon I’ll check out the album. They’re a great band.


#4

I was totally obsessed with their first album. It was the first time in years I felt we had a new Joy Division/Smiths on our hands. They’ve never come close to it since.


#5

I like them so much I was quoted in the liner notes on the Sea of Brass album!

I mean, granted, they spelled my name wrong and got my publication wrong but still. They were my words!


#6

I bought tickets to their Leeds gig in April but then booked a holiday without thinking about the dates :frowning: still haven’t managed to catch them live because other stuff keeps getting in the way.

In unrelated news, anyone want two British Sea Power tickets?


#7

Yeah they still put out some decent stuff even if they’re past their best now. Valhalla Dancehall was a bit of a hit and miss mess but Machineries was quite a nice little record and the new track sounds decent.


#8

Yeah maybe, when is it?


#9

7th April at Church in Leeds (new venue near Leeds uni, in a former church)


#10

OK. I’ll get back to you on that. But if you find a buyer before I get back to you, please give your tickets to them. Like I say, I’m looking at Edinburgh.


#11

never listened to them due to the dullness of their name. sell em to me in one song please somebody


#12

I’ll try, but first can you give me a short list of bands you like?


#13

Jasper Carrott
Smashing Pumpkins
Tangerine Dream
Bananarama
The Electric Prunes
Jam


#14

Thanks.

For what it’s worth, try this.

It’s 14 minutes long, but if you like Tangerine Dream that won’t be a problem:


#15

not a fan of blancmange, bread or marmalade?


#16

Im interested. Will give the other guy first dibs though.


#17

Oh I assumed it was trinity church in the centre.


#18

Nah it’s that church where Get Baked is


#19

Nono, give @unlucky first dibs!


#20

Hmm not familiar with that. Will double check my mate hasn’t already bought tickets.
