    Bought Decline of BSP the other day. Great album :smashin:

    Recommend you pick up a copy. Nice antidote to the comparatively dull Snow patrol/Keane sound that has become so fashionable of late. BSP is a lot more aggressive :devil:

    Surprised how little I've seen/heard of them actually. If you want a shot in the arm, this is the album for you.

    What a fantastic band! Hard to describe though! We came up with the conclusion they were a mixture of The Pixies/Dead Kennedys/Pulp/Husker Du/Leatherface and load of other stuff thrown in. Well worth checking out!

    Went to see them a few weeks ago at the Garage in London. New stuff sounds like it will be good too! Even got myself a souvenir mug with 'British Tea Power' written on it!

    Agreed. They are difficult to categorise! Hard to describe their "sound".

    I have been wondering if I should buy this album.........strangely, I think the name put me off. Sounds like it might be worth a listen.

    I think you'll love it as you seem to be into a mixed bag of 'alternative' stuff. Being mainly into punk and having grown up on metal I was put off by the 'indie' image I got from fans of the band but a friend played me a song after a night down the pub and I wouldn't let him take it off the stereo 'till the whole album finished! Absolutely great stuff!

    Great Album, Read an interview with Thom Yorke in which he said that he was currently listening to BSP, so out of curiosity i bought it and was presently surprised

    resurrecting this very old thread for a heads up.

    the new British Sea Power album "Do you like Rock Music?" is out tomorrow.

    ive been listening to the streamed version of it on the nme website and its superb.
