Tribute acts aren’t reserved only for the dead and restless, though. Brighton-based rockers British Sea Power will take the stage for one night to perform his songs. They’ll go under an alias, The Modern Ovens — a loving nod to Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers. The band also features members of Brakes and The Tenderfoot. They will play Klüb Gütenberg on December 5 at The Old Queen’s Head in London.
Roy Wilkinson, the brother of British Sea Power’s fronting duo Yan and Neil, will also read from his book Do It For Your Mum, the first release from the publishing branch of British Sea Power’s label, Rough Trade.
