So you ask, what is the BPA? It’s the Brighton Port Authority initiated by none other than Norman Cook (Fatboy Slim) always known for championing his city, and his engineer Simon Thornton. This compilation of all-star collaborations is one for the masses, with ginormous names like David Byrne, Iggy Pop, Dizzee Rascal and Jamie T thrown into the mix, (along with Martha Wainwright, Emmy the Great, Ashley Beedle and Pete Yorn among others) I Think We’re Gonna Need A Bigger Boat is a melting pot of some of today’s most talented musicians representing their genres. Despite hailing from different spectrums of sound, the one thing these artists have in common is they’ve had or will have a longevity in this business, providing a smorgasbord of delights for fans who love a good old collaboration.
