It’s been 15 years (!!) since british sea power changed the landscape with ‘open season’ & they sure know how to celebrate a birthday - the expanded reissue includes additional live sessions, B-sides and rarities from the period and extensive new sleeve notes.

The majority of the original album was recorded by Mads Bjerke (Spiritualized, Primal Scream, Girls Aloud) and mixed by Bill Price (Sex Pistols, The Clash, Sparks). Two tracks were recorded and mixed by Graham Sutton (The Delays, Bark Psychosis) and Phill Brown (Sly Stone, Led Zeppelin, Talk Talk).

 

 

seb says “Please stand up, 'Open Season' is celebrating 15 years! I feel old, but this doesn't sound it.”
