is apparently called 'Now That's What I Call A World War One Joy Division'.
It made me smile.
it was on their latest mailout. I imagine it will probably change when they run it by their record label.
British Sea Power mailouts usually full of that sort of thing? I remember when they toured Europe with Interpol and described it as "a bargain - two Joy Divisions for the price of one".
I take it with a pinch of salt. I'm just happy it's on it's way.
Joy divisions were first made in ww2.
I adore The Decline. It's a 10/10 album. No2 not so much, but not bad and definately not as bad as DiSers seem to think. No3 will be a return to top form. I've no doubt of this!
were my favourite band for about three years after 'The Decline of' came out. I cannot wait for this album. It seems like an age since the last one even though it was only 2005.
got both their albums and I'm not sure I even like them that much. Strange.
they do that to ya
favourite live band as well.
thought the second was very average though.
It was just dwarfed by how brilliant the first one was.
but the second one was a lot more average
is vastly underrated. Worth it just for Oh Larsen B and True Adventures.
Totally wicked and equally ace!
but not as good as their first singles promised.
Let's just hope for the new one !
I saw them play so many times before and just after the first record came out and then kinda lost interest. They really ought to put out a singles/bsides compilation for those that missed out on the singles that didn't make it on the album.
Their show at Cargo marking the entry of the Czech Republic into the EU was fantastic (especially amusing for me being Czech).
The best time seeing them for me had to be supporting the Flaming Lips where they played a rather long short ww2 film which everyone (including The Flips) stared at and watched in silence. Then they came on, did two short songs and said "this is our last song". I was thinking they'd only been on for a short time so was surprised but they played Lately and dragged it on for about 20 minutes. Beautiful gig.
but a great live act for people that think fancy dress and a hardcore following of zealots is all you need.
though apparently i saw them on a bad day. according to a zealot. because there was no fancy dress.
but yay. i hope the new album is totally ace and exciting and experimental and shit. "the shit" that is. yeah?
I always had BSP down as a run-of-the-mill guitar band. I can't really see that changing although I do like bits of both albums.
are pretty standard pop guitar stuff, but then descend into noisey instrumental chaos. especially live. that's what i mean by experimental.
and you are quite correct. I seem to recall "Lately" veering off and becoming a noise-fest when I saw them once.
They segue Lately into their largely improvised closer Rock In A, which is where all the noise/chaos/Ursine Ultra/Yan doing handstands/all and sundry comes in.
DVD next year, apparently.
Watch this space!
...album in the RT office last week..is sounding wonderful..yep im biased I know..
as long as someone said its wonderful its got to be fine as.
I love BSP. They make other indie guitar bands look lifeless.
is the bear still alive?
