The Blue Aeroplanes

The Blue Aeroplanes

The Blue Aeroplanes are a Bristol-based rock group featuring Gerard Langley, whose poetic lyrics (largely spoken) were combined with a heavily guitar-centric band to produce albums such as "Swagger", "Tolerance", and "Beatsongs". After "Cavaliers/Roundheads" was released in 2000 they had a lengthy break before re-releasing "Swagger" as a 2-CD deluxe version in January 2006 and announcing a new album "Altitude" due in spring 2007.
