Man Of Aran

BRITISH SEA POWER Man Of Aran (2009 UK 2-disc [CD/DVD] set - Both celebrated and controversial upon its 1994 release, 'Man Of Aran' is a powerful and provocative dramatised documentary from the late American filmmaker Robert J Flaherty. In a series of startling black and white sequences, the film presents daily life on the inhospitable Aran islands on the west coast of Ireland. British Sea Power have written and recorded a new soundtrack for the film: It's awonderful film, says BSP guitarist Noble. The images vary between huge drama and a brilliant kind of ridiculousness - check out the amazing foot-wide bobbled berets that the fishermen wear. It's a great look, like a 1930s Irish version of Jack White or Kraftwerk. It's a film that's also relevant to the current era – a time when the idea of living a simpler life is in the air. The film shows something I'd like to think I could do, but know I never will. Aswell as featuring a CD containing their newly recorded soundtrack, the set comes complete with the original film on DVD.)
