The BPA: I Think We're Gonna Need A Bigger Boat

I Think We're Gonna Need A Bigger Boat
Southern Fried Records [2009]

Fire Drills Review:

The Brighton Port Authority is really a new album from Norman Cook (Fatboy Slim) and 12 of his guest vocalists, which the bigger names include Iggy Pop, Martha Wainwright, David Byrne and Dizzee Rascal. An album of this sort always still feels like a compilation even though it is under one moniker and put together by Cook but the vocalists bring the real flavor to the record. Nothing on here rises above what Norman has accomplished with Fatboy but there are enough tracks which pop to make it still worth your while especially if you are already a fan!

Key Track: "Spade" (w/ Martha Wainwright)

Band With Similar Fire: Fatboy Slim
