Event details: Do you like rock music? Most probably, yes. It’s the most expressive medium in human history and provides undemanding employment for many thousands. Rock music easily encompasses both “Wop bop a loo bop a lop bam boom!” and the Big Bang theory. Suddenly there’s a nice big noise. This noise makes you feel like you can say something - and that people might listen. You can say anything really - but, best of all, something no one’s said before. This is rock music and this is the third album from British Sea Power. 

‘Do You Like Rock Music?’ was made in Montreal, the Czech Republic and Fort Tregantle - a 19th Century fortification in Cornwall, on England’s South - West coast. It was recorded by a band that are unafraid to embrace the far poles of arts and entertainment. BSP have toured with and been praised by David Bowie, The Flaming Lips, Lou Reed, Radiohead and Jarvis Cocker. But they’ve also been invited to play in celebration of the life and times of Sir John Betjeman, the late UK Poet Laureate, born in 1906. And they’ve played shows with The Copper Family, a clan of Sussex folk singers who’ve been going for two hundred years.
