British Sea Power
Sometimes, just being in a band isn’t enough. Sometimes, just being in a band that adorns its live stages with twigs and branches and foliage, releases Top 20 albums and plays shows in an array of unusual locations just isn’t enough to quell one’s creative ambition. In order to combat the boredom of simply ‘being in a band,’ British Sea Power have recorded a soundtrack to Penny Woolcock’s documentary about a century of life on the coastline of Britain. Finally released as a studio album last year, the soundtrack is comprised of re-workings of BSP’s back catalogue as well as specially-composed pieces.
