Air Traffic

Originally from Bournemouth, this piano-led, indie-rock quartet got their name from the air traffic control signals that they would pick up while they were rehearsing in abandoned industrial units next to the airport where they first formed.

2006 has seen the band notch up some incredible achievements including; releasing their debut single “Just Abuse Me” through the cool indie “Label Fandango” on a strictly limited edition of 500 CD singles and 7” which sold out in a matter of days, signing a long-term album deal with EMI Records through their Tiny Consumer imprint, doing live and recorded sessions for Steve Lamacq and Zane Lowe at the famous BBC Maida Vale studios as well as having their debut EP “Never Even Told Me Her Name” playlisted at Radio 1 and unexpectedly being asked to perform two songs on “Later….with Jools Holland” whilst hanging out with The Killers. To cap this great year off the band have been personally invited by Snow Patrol to play some dates with them on their sell-out UK arena tour in December.

2007 will see; further UK tours, their first tour dates in Ireland, Europe and the US (keep an eye on the “Upcoming Shows” section), the first bona-fide single release and the much-anticipated debut album. Recommended!

You know that one of your site that you link to also has a rather big amount of fascistical songs?

Anyway, besides from that technical matter, I'm a big fan of the blog.

You could specify which one and I'd remove it or put some kind of warning to it.

I really don't test the content of each linked folder so that such things may happen.
