Do It For Your Mum

September 9, 2011

British Sea Power have marked their 10 year anniversary with a book out on Rough Trade. Do It For Your Mum. A story about family, music, the lake district and British Sea Power.

It’s written by their brother and revolves around their dad.

A series of book readings are taking place around these fair isles. Last night’s London reading commenced in typically dainty BSP fashion. A Pub Quiz, a reading, a set of drunken vocalbatics from poet Jock Scott, and an acoustic performance from the band themselves.

I attended this intimate shindig with my very own dad. He bloody loved it.

BSP have to be one of the most important rock bands in Britain. Yeah, i said it.  Like the Lakelands that nurtured them, they are delightfully quaint, yet timeless and towering. As fresh as the Cumbrian breeze. Oh yes.

And if there was any justice in the world, they’d be bigger than U2.
