Song for Sunday
British Sea Power – Man of Aran
Something a little bit different this week. It is actually a track called The Great Skua from the album Do You Like Rock Music?, accompanying an excerpt from Robert Flaherty's 1934 film Man of Aran. British Sea Power have done a soundtrack to the whole film, which I believe they performed live at a screening of the film at the BFI. You can find more clips from the film on YouTube, but if this piques your curiosity I would recommend Tim Robinson's magnificent two-volume Stones of Aran: Pilgrimage and Stones of Aran: Labyrinth.
