A departure from the usual posts to this forum, I thought I'd mention the 
arrival of British Sea Power
on our shores this week. The band
describes themselves as "inspired by the countryside" and as "oddball,
eccentric, English Indie rockers"...birds feature in many of their songs. They 
are in fact birders...and are simply excellent!

BSP are a highly acclaimed band with an
incredible bibliography that includes guest appearances on Jools
Holland, David Letterman and have even covered "I am a Cider Drinker"
with the Wurzels" doesn't get much better than that!!

If going to gigs isn't your thing and the idea of rock music offends your 
palate, then try out Man of Aran for a taste of British Sea Power's creative 
brilliance: Sadly, they are 
performing this only in WA. I'd love to see it. The last time I saw a band do 
this was Asian Dub Foundation playing to the black and white French film La 
Heine (1995) at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl.

Hear what they have to say during their appearance on the TV
program Countryfile and hear more about their influences ...
