British Sea Power : Childhood Memories
...improves on previous BSP outings by virtue of something resembling a tune...
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.
