Song of the Day (Chaotic Neutral): British Sea Power – The Smallest Church In Sussex

Day 26. Tonight I finished my first playthrough of the incredible detective RPG Disco Elysium. It has a soundtrack by British Sea Power, who I love, & there is a scene in which the main protagonist sings an altered version of this song entitled ‘The Smallest Church In Saint-Saëns’. I’ve included this version below for the curious. The vocals are by the protagonists Ancient Reptilian Brain.

I would often go there
To the tiny church there
The smallest church in Sussex
Though it once was larger

How the rill may rest there
Down through the mist there
Toward the Seven Sisters
Toward those white cliffs there

I would ofter stay there
In there tiny yard there
I have been so glad here
Looking forward to the past here

But now you are alone
None of this matters at all

British Sea Power

Tonight, I was supposed to be seeing one of my favourite bands, British Sea Power, at the Crescent Community Venue in York. Needless to say, the Covid19 pandemic put paid to that idea. The concert has been postponed until October (which from this point in time still appears optimistic) & my ticket is still valid for the rescheduled show, but I’m still feeling a sense of loss about this.

So today, I’m having a British Sea Power day & listening to loads of their music. I’m sharing with you, dear reader, a selection of my favourite songs by them in video form. If you’re not familiar with them, I can’t recommend them enough. & if you get the opportunity to see them live, you should. They are one of (maybe the) best live bands I’ve ever seen.

For now though enjoy some of their great music.
