The Sceptic Tank's new favourite band is British Sea Power, purveyors of honest-to-goodness Brit rock and proud supporters of British Sea Power.
The critically acclaimed indie rock outfit has lent its support to the SeaPower Campaign for fresh funding for the UK's marine energy industry and last night played a private gig for representatives from across the industry on a boat cruising down the Thames.
The Sceptic Tank is impressed as much by the name-appropriate nature of the collaboration as it is by the sight of marine engineers attempting to mosh, and hereby kicks off the quest for those bands best placed to raise the profile of the green business movement.
We've just emailed the Red Hot Chili Peppers to see if they have any interest in organic farming, and we're waiting to hear from the Airborne Toxic Event about our campaign for cleaner air. The Darkness are the obvious fit for the push for lighter evenings, but we're afraid the band are probably busy with their new jobs stacking shelves. Meanwhile, Green Day's people should expect a call in the not too distant future regarding helping out on every single environmental campaign ever imagined.
