British Sea Power

ARTIST / BAND: British Sea Power

SONG (MP3): Atom

ALBUM: Krankenhaus EP

FILE UNDER: Indie / Alternative / Pop


INFO: British Sea Power play amplified rock music and are based in Brighton, on England’s south coast. You may have seen them, loitering outside the racecourse and telling you to bet on the three-legged horses with the beautiful names. All very well, but British Sea Power have also turned up some interesting names in the real world. Their debut album was conspicuously praised by David Bowie, Radiohead, Lou Reed and the nice young man who plays Harry Potter, while their last concert in Japan was attended by several Asiatic Black Bears. It’s all true, but how did it happen? In Brighton, BSP began to stage their own Club Sea Power night. This was 2001, the year which also saw the release of the band’s first record, the single Fear Of Drowning on their own Golden Chariot label. With beech branches arcing up over the amplifiers and a plastic peregrine falcon peering out at the crowd, Club Sea Power soon became a byword for a remarkable night-out.
