St. Louis EP rumours

More news on the Japanese The Spirit Of St. Louis EP… It’s likely to include the re-recordings of A Lovely Day Tomorrow featuring The Ecstasy Of Saint Theresa, as well as Fakir, Tugboat and early b-sides. The CD will also have videos to play on your computer… hopefully it has all six promo videos, but that is probably wishful thinking. When everything is confirmed, you’ll read it here first!

Carling Weekend 2004

The band have been confirmed for the Carling Festival 2004. They play Leeds on the Friday and Reading on the Sunday, and they’re playing the Radio 1 stage below Supergrass, The Von Bondies and Auf Der Maur. Which I think is a farce.

“Thousands of 70% finished songs”

I’m four days late with this, but better late than never, as they say. Anyway, Drowned In Sound reported that the band’s gig at the Shepherds Bush Empire on the 29th April could be the last time the band decorate the stage with trees and branches. They also say that Yan told them the band have “thousands of 70% finished songs“. The full article reads:

British Sea Power begun work writing their second album in February, shut off from the world for three weeks round Brighton’s South Downs. Vocalist/guitarist Yan told DiS this morning: “That was the first effort we’ve made so far [writing new material]. We had a lot of fun and have hours of various kinds of recordings… like thousands of 70% finished songs.”

While it seems the follow-up to last year’s ‘The Decline Of British Sea Power’ seems a little way off, they are set to embark on their biggest tour yet (dates here), culminating at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire on April 29th. Yan also says that particular gig could be the last time the band decorate the stage with their famous foliage. :-O

Although some fans going to Glastonbury are already planning a “Camp Sea Power” (thagt’s an area in the campsite, not a gay tribute band), BSP aren’t, at time of writing, confirmed for the festival, but Yan says: “We’re doing the Isle of Wight festival, which will be good as I’ve never been there before. I hear they have some good wildlife there.”

On the BSP tourbus stereo recently: The Silver Jews, Buddy Holly, Lonnie Donegan, Julian Cope, Galaxie 500.

Czech Sea Power

British Sea Power will be bringing Club Sea Power to the village of London yet again on the 30th April 2004. The band play the 500-capacity Cargo venue.

Having sold out the Shepherds Bush Empire for their upcoming gig, British Sea Power will present Club Sea Power at Champion Sound Friday 30 April. Likened to Joy Division by the NME, Sleaze, etc… This will be a rare chance to catch BSP in an intimate venue with support from The Ecstasy Of St Theresa, the best thing of TicketWeb. Get in early.
