Glastonbury round-up

British Sea Power played the Glastonbury Festival yesterday and reports so far have been very good. There is a review online at Playlouder and Virtual Festivals are hosting some pictures {thanks Dave}.

TV coverage from the BBC has so far been dire when it comes to British Sea Power. The wide-eyed Salty Water observants have been watching around the clock and all we’ve seen are quick glimpses of Hamilton and Yan with Ursine Ultra during the credits. Bastards!

That said, BBC 6 Music has aired 3 songs recorded at the festival. Yesterday, Tom Robinson played new song How Animals Work as well as Carrion and eariler today Steve Lamacq played The Spirit Of St. Louis. Both shows can be heard again online for another week at BBC Glastonbury (click on ‘Listen Again’) but they don’t seem to be working at the moment… hopefully the techies will sort it out soon and I get can some mp3s online for you to download. Bastards.

Edit: All three songs can now be downloaded in mp3 format. Please see the official forum for links.

Brighton and Keele gigs

Four new songs were played at The Freebutt gig on Wednesday. These were brand new tracks Mother, To Get To Sleep, the Hamilton-sung Leaving Here and previously aired How Animals Work. I was there and they sound great. That bodes rather well for the next album… speaking of which, Hamilton told me that it would be out “sooner than expected”, but Woody was quoted as saying it won’t be out until next year. Whenever it’s released, it’s going to be good.

The band also played at the Keele University Summer Party the night after (Thu 10th). Reports say that Noble was throwing sandwiches, crisps and the like around the room. Which was nice I’m sure.
