British Sea Power made an unexpected appearance at a LONDON club on Saturday (February 26).

Playing at Frog, the group’s typically riotous set almost saw band members thrown out of the venue in a case of mistaken identity.

Previewing a selection of tracks from their forthcoming new album ‘Open Season’, out April 7, the show ended with a stage invasion, while an extended crowd surf saw guitarist Noble mistaken for an overly enthusiastic fan.

"That was outrageous," said Noble who was almost thrown out. "I had to show the bouncer my backstage pass before he'd let me back on stage. But while I was doing that someone in the audience pulled off my shoes. If anyone knows where they are I'll give £2.50 for their safe return."

Not that the band, who release single ‘It Ended On An Oily Rag’ on March 21, object to fan participation.

Speaking to NME.COM last week, British Sea Power announced a competition giving readers a chance to win tickets for their April tour by suggestion a new stage hat to replace keyboard player Eamon’s old tin hat.
