The Blue Aeroplanes were formed in 1981 in Bristol and despite numerous line-up changes (29 at last count!) included the ever present Gerard Langley as lead singer. They briefly tasted fame when their 1990 album (produced by Gil Norton) ‘Swagger’ bore 2 singles ‘Jacket Hangs’ and ‘…And Stones’ that grazed the lower reaches of the UK charts. The former is included here and remains a low-slung classic with Langley’s near spoken word vocals superbly complementing the memorable descending chord advances. The Blue Aeroplanes recorded and released an album called ‘Altitude’ in 2005 and promoted the album throughout 2006 (‘Swagger’ was also reissued). Included in the current touring line-up is one Gerard Starkie of Witness fame so perhaps the Aeroplanes may have just stumbled upon a winning combination. KD
