Beatsongs 20th Anniversary Tour: The Blue Aeroplanes + Patrick Duff + These Colours
The Blue Aeroplanes head out on their first UK tour for seven years, celebrating the 20th anniversary of their album 'Beatsongs'.
'Beatsongs' was originally released in 1991. Recorded at Oceanway in Los Angeles, the album was a broader-based affair than 'Swagger', featuring many songs that were to become staples of the Aeroplanes' live set for many years. Reissued in March 2013, the album was partly remixed and overdubbed in Bristol but all the tracks from the original playback in LA are included on CD2.
Longstanding Bristol band who burst on to the scene back in 1984 with their eclectic mix of rock, folk, roots, pop and poetry; a pyrotechnic blur of dulcimers, bagpipes, turntables, dancing and lots of guitars, all bound together in tendrils of freeform poetry.

Patrick Duff, once singer in the alternative rock band Strangelove, is now a solo artist in his own right. Having travelled the world recording and playing at festivals he has collaborated with musicians on five continents. He released his first solo album 'Luxury Problems', produced by Adrian Utley of Portishead and Alex Lee of Goldfrapp in 2005.
In 2009 his 2nd album "The Mad Straight Road", a collection of 12 songs that took in Disney soundtracks, The Kinks, Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash, saw Duff establish himself as a solo artist. His 3rd solo album, "Visions of the Underworld", recorded live in a cottage in Dartmoor and released in 2013, saw him go back to the basics of his voice and his guitar.
Patrick's voice and songs are rich and dark with a hint of pop sensibility. Think Leonard Cohen, John Lennon, Bob Dylan, Nick Cave and Johnny Cash.
