Band play rousing set in the Texas sun
British Sea Power played a rousing afternoon set in the Texas sun this afternoon (March 14), performing for an hour at the Mohawk venue at 5pm (CMT).
A good crowd had turned out to see the Brighton band perform, many tackling the heat by chomping on ice lollies which were handed out to the audience free.
Singer/guitarist Yan sported yellow knee-high socks and the word ï¿½EASYï¿½ written across the back of his shirt in pink tape.
The band opened their set with the stage deserted, with ï¿½All In Itï¿½ blaring out of the speakers, creating an epic atmosphere as the band walked on stage and kicked off.
Playing a set largely comprised of songs from their recent album, ï¿½Do You Like Rock Music?ï¿½, British Sea Power found time to slip in old favourites such as ï¿½Remember Meï¿½ and Carrionï¿½.
Before playing ï¿½Down On The Groundï¿½, guitarist Martin Noble, obviously suffering in the heat, declared that he was ï¿½sweatier than a glass blowerï¿½s arse,ï¿½ prompting laughter from the crowd. Later in the set he asserted that he was ï¿½still sweatier than a glass blowerï¿½s arseï¿½.
Noble upped the ante towards the close of the gig, playing guitar with his teeth before, after an epic ï¿½Spirit Of St. Louisï¿½, the band left the stage to huge applause and the venue was closed for the day.
British Sea Power played:
ï¿½A Trip Outï¿½
