British Sea Power : Childhood Memories

Fair play, of course, to any band who look like suicide bombers affiliated to the Boy Scout movement. And, sure, it's hard not to be taken with the sort of people who call their B-side 'Favours In The Beetroot Fields'.



Alas, [a]British Sea Power[/a]'s preoccupation with various quaint relics of old Albion extends to a slightly debilitating love for gout-ridden indie-rock last seen twitching, anti-socially, around 1991. 'Childhood Memories' improves on previous BSP outings by virtue of something resembling a tune, specifically one filched from Kitchens Of Distinction, a band from the more durable and quixotic end of shoegazing. A bit like Interpol, too, only with better knot-tying skills and a good working knowledge of the Lake District.
