Rough Trade Records will reissue of British Sea Power’s seminal LP Do You Like Rock Music? album on February 9th, 2024. The album will be expanded for this 15th anniversary reissue with radio sessions, B-sides and extensive new sleeve notes. The album will be released on CD, Double LP (Ltd. Ed. Picture Disc) & digitally. The limited-edition LP will be housed in gatefold glow in the dark sleeve with orange vinyl & a picture disc, plus extensive new sleeve notes written by Roy Wilkinson.

This kaleidoscopic record encapsulates British Sea Power’s true heart. The album takes in meteorological disaster (‘Canvey Island’), celestial pollution (‘Lights Out For Darker Skies’), a rousing and intricate anthem to European unity (‘Waving Flags’) and a moving instrumental named after a piratical sea bird, ‘The Great Skua’, a track that has gone on to soundtrack several conservation films. The track ‘No Lucifer’ illustrates the scope of the album, a composition that places Big Daddy’s TV wresting chant (“Easy, easy”) beside Biblical ideas of Armageddon.
