About this item

'The BSP Handbook (Vol 1)' - A hardback book with 2CDs and DVD
This image-laden high-quality hardback book comes with dustjacket and integral wallets containing two CDs and one DVD – a marvellously multi-media combination that tells the story of the Decline album in compelling audio-visual style.
The CDs feature the acclaimed original 'Decline' album and B-sides from the Decline era. The DVD features live BSP footage from the UK and Japan, alongside Decline-period videos and bonus features. Please note: the Handbook narrative and images are completely different to those in the book in the Compleat box-set. Text by Roy Wilkinson, author of the acclaimed BSP-themed memoir Do It For Your Mum. Stuart Maconie on Do It For Your Mum: "As different from the usual rock biography as British Sea Power are from the usual rock band. Funny, literate, touching, ambitious and engaging. A quirky, brilliant story –quirkily, brilliantly told.”
