*BSP all over the radio networks
*Running times and booze briefing for library shows
*Great Expectations reborn in sensual Anglo-Georgian songster
*Read all about it – BSP slam back beers and peers outside Parliament
On Tuesday BSP played live out on the River Thames, right outside the Mother of Parliaments. It was all arranged so the Sea Power lads could help tell Boy George Osborne and chums how better to exploit green wave power. ONE PROBLEM! No one was let onboard apart from politicians, Kate Humble in waders and, of course, BSP tour mascot Jacko the monkey, last seen on the steamer Garth Castle in 1910, rigged out in suitable naval attire. But now the information gap has been slammed shut. Read this exclusive report from the excellent rock website The Quietus:
Next up, BSP are in session on Jo Whiley’s In Concert show on BBC Radio 2 tonight, Thursday 3 March. Also featured will be a live concert broadcast from the covertly randy Katie Melua, pop’s answer to Estella Havisham – a guaranteed sexy spitfire beneath the brocade and supercilious lip-pursing. Watch for sparks as, first, Katie insists BSP follow her at ten paces – and then gets down on her knees to beg them all back for a hot-tub jacuzzi. For sure, radio won’t have heard the likes of this before. BSP are playing two tracks live. The show runs from 8.00-10.00pm.
BSP have also recorded a session for the XFM radio station. Word on the street says it will hit hard, like the banner with which the vermin-infested East End marked the 25th anniversary of King George V’s reign in 1935: “LOUSY BUT LOYAL”. XFM transmission date to be confirmed.
LIBRARY SHOW INFO
Finally, some details on BSP’s two library shows this weekend. At Rugby on Friday the support will be the group Life In Film. At Westminster support will be the leading Caledonian field poet Jock Scot, a man who has worked with artists from The Clash to Viv Stanshall to The Nectarine No.9. The schedule at Westminster will be quite tight. Doors are at 8.30pm, but people are advised to start arriving a bit before then so their details can be checked off on the Crowdsurge ticketing list. BSP are due to play 9.00pm-10.30pm. Doors in Rugby are at 7.30pm, with BSP on at 9.00pm. NB. There will be no booze bars at the Rugby and Westminster show, just soft drinks.
