What people are saying about British Sea Power

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best yet from BSP! I've seen BSP 4 times and this was the best to date. The skilfully interwove songs from the latest album 'Let the Dancers Inherit the Party with classics from the previous 5, and they blended seamlessly. Starting with 2 new tracks 'Bad Bohemian' and 'International Space Station' took guts on the first tour date and with the full album only out a few days before, but the songs were received enthusiastically by a knowledgeable audience. The pattern that followed was generally 2 new songs and then a couple of oldies, with Remember Me featuring early on. Waving Flags, their anthem to celebrate immigration, was cheered and sung loudly by the crowd, as was No Lucifer from the same album. Each album featured: Please Stand Up from Open Season (a personal highlight as I had not heard this live before); Machineries of Joy from the album of the same name. There was a slightly wobbly moment in the middle when 2 tricky slower songs, Don't Ket the Sun Get in the Way and Alone Piano experienced pitch issues (it was the first gig after all), but then we were back on more familiar ground with Atom and a wonderful, majestic Great Skua, led to a grand finale St Louis, and as an encore the amazing Carion, with 'Scapa Flow to Rotherhithe' Sunday to the rafters by the fervent audience, who were joined by the traditional enormous bears who danced with the crowd. Around two hours of nonstop, skilful, interesting and intelligent guitar based indie rock music delivered with humour and panache. What more could you ask for?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best band in the land deliver yet again I'll admit, I'm predisposed to giving positive reviews to BSP. This show was something like the 15th time I've seen them. All the touchstones of a classic BSP gig were there - stage wreathed in foliage, dancing bears going into the crowd, off-kilter between song banter, and above all else, some of the best songs from one of the best bands of the 21st century. Most of the new songs, whilst obviously having their own style, fit seamlessly with the classics - "International Space Station", "The Voice of Ivy Lee", "Bad Bohemian" and "Keep On Trying" already hold their own amongst the likes of "Remember Me", "Lights Out For Darker Skies" and "Waving Flags". The general euphoria of the BSP faithful never waned, even when some of the less obvious songs from the back catalogue were wheeled out. Every BSP show is it's own unique experience, and this one ranks as one of the best. And how often can you go home from a gig and causally say "yeah, I danced with a polar bear tonight"? If you've never seen a BSP show, you need to rectify that a.s.a.p.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from British Sea Power at full power Loved the intimacy of the gig and sheer power given to the performance. On top of that I got to meet the main man :-). Also Mongk II as usual was just superb.
