ROB SEZ: The Blue Aeroplanes are a perfect fit for this blog: massively talented, but overlooked by too many. If Gerard Langley's beat poet sensibility and talk-singing style is off-putting to some music fans, I say it's their loss. SPECIAL THANKS to auto_pilot for recording & sharing. I'll have an even longer BA post Friday, so come back soon. Psssst: check the comments section for a cool bonus AND TO LEAVE A COMMENT! ("subtle" hint)...
