British Sea Power - Remember Me
Brighton based British Sea Power are back, after the Impressive Debut album "The Decline of..." Remember me is another single off the debut, Consisting of four members (Yan – Vocals/Songwriter, Brother of Yan Hamilton – Bass, Noble – Guitars and finally Wood – Drums) they are defiantly a unique setup, as they dress up in World War One uniforms and when playing live have leaves on stage, which makes for a distinctive experience.
Albeit the second time round, Remember Me  still inspires to impress, packaged in thick cardboard which a surface reminiscent to wool mix jackets of old whatever it is, it just oozes nostalgic quality. Not to mention that the 7" is on a limited run of 2003 copies, each of which is unique because they are hand inscribed with a persons name (submitted via the mailing list).
Remember me, sounding a little like Jarvis Cocker’s [Pulp] wild side (recently, with his new band Relaxed Muscle) Remember Me is hard-line rock, with frantic non-stop drums and guitars and Yan’s now trademark vocals, although slightly cold the song fails to un-inspire listeners, and if you’ve seen the video (heavily playing on MTV/MTV2/The Amp currently) it’ll seem even more poignant to the listener.
The B side The Scottish Wildlife Experience (surely a name suitably apt for a BSP tribute band) is a meandering instrumental, and what id expect from a b-side on a vinyl (the unexpected that is) as its in a totally different style to both the single, album and importantly the other B-Sides on CD1 and CD2.
All in all this little 99p wonder is well worth a Purchase and deserves to be better placed in the charts than #30
