Decline feels like a huge work of progress (and insight into a zeitgeist) that is now stranded.

British Sea Power - Bitterzoet, Amsterdam, 25th June 2013

it’s obvious British Sea Power are not the band they used to be. No. They’re better than that. Far better.

Incendiary look to find interesting things to do in Belgium. With British Sea Power.

What the feck does this band do to people?

Roy Wilkinson - Do It For Your Mum


The passages about Dad are tremendous. Especially the bit about Dad as the gatekeeper and proselytiser of the BSP revolution. His speech could mirror the kind of staccato commands given to the Red Guards in 1917-22.
