I've liked them for two years, when they had a song on a cd that came with Q magazine, when Q was good (how depressing it is to remember those days and then see Q now ). I bought their album when it was released last June, but I still haven't seen them live. I heard they have plants all over the stage.

I remember that Q, and the days of good Q...
Yep, I like them. I've also heard they are a bit...different live. Foilage onstage...not sure if that was a specific tour where they did that, but I remember hearing that they are very theatrical...sounds interesting!

Oh rub it in why don't you!

I'd love to travel to Europe to join you, but logistically I have about as much chance of a space-machine taking me to Europe in a week, than a time-machine taking me back a week so I could see them right near my home town.

I may just be bitter about this for a loooong time, too.

Just as a note...
"oh the heavy water how it enfolds the salt, the spray, the gorgeous
undertow. Always, always, always the sea: brilliantine mortality"

is becoming one of my favourite lyrics of like ever.

I don't know who "SkeeK" is, but I completely echo his sentiment: British Sea Power . . . holy fuck!

I just heard their new album, "Do You Like Rock Music?" (comes out next Tues. 2/12), and OMG! I freakin' love it!

"Atom" and "Waving Flags"

I'm so lucky I caught this b/c they're playing the week after next, twice in L.A. and once in San Diego.

I'm SO there!!!

But back on topic, I've heard many good things about the new British Sea Power album and I probably should check it out...

Before I heard them, I read a Guardian article with them and they were really laying into Bono. I know alot of people do it - but it really put me off, as they didn't seem to have any good reasons for being so mean?

Anyway that really put me off them and I think they sound/look/act too much like The Arcade Fire to be honest Even though I think they have been around longer? I just prefer The Arcade Fire.

At one point he had the highest post count of anyone on this forum. He was also one of the best posters Bang and Clatter ever had, so speak his name with respect or I'll cut you and animals will make carrion of you.

Circle of life.

yeah, i've only been posting regularly for about a year, year-and-a-half, so i must've missed when he posted on a regular basis. sounds like a cool guy though.

and he has great taste in music.
