British Sea Power made their name in an odd manner for a UK band really, as it's not very often we get groups doing the whole residency thing...having a weekly slot at a venue, yet this is what they did. Brighton was the town of choice, being the entertainment (and gay, though I'm sure this had no bearing) capitol of southern England. Well, outside of London anyway.
It payed off, and with each release their popularity has grown. Not suprisingly really, as they're one of the most accomplished bands about in the UK today, and aren't in the bracket of those who got signed post-Doherty. A phenomenon I hate as a music fan...a band's good and sells records, anything vaguely simliar gets signed to try and cash in on a trend. BSPs music thankfully did its own talking, nothing to do with style in anyway, the way all music should be.
