ROB SEZ: Bristol's Blue Aeroplanes are a good example of a great band that's been making music for so long, they're easily overlooked. "Are they still around?" ask would-be fans. "Are they any good this many years later?" My answers: Yes, and YES, absolutely! Jangly rock + strong songs + poetic sensibility = compelling music. Gerard Langley & co. released a new studio album, Welcome, Stranger! in 2016 — featured prominently in this show. Check the sample and you'll hear a band in excellent form. MEGA THANKS to auto_pilot for recording & sharing this show and the one from 2013 shared here a few days ago. Don't miss the not-very-hidden bonus share, a full-length FM recording from 1990.

  2. Fabulous, thank you

  3. Hey Rob. Thought this might interest you. I luckily stumbled upon the video in someone's playlist. The video is set to unlisted so you wouldn't see if searched. It's from 2016 prior to the release of Welcome, Stranger!

    1. Thanks a bunch -- looks tasty!
