The Bluetones formed London in 1993 and set out to conquer the world writing songs in an improvised studio fashioned from a damp and leaky garage in the garden. It was in 1994 that the band first started to generate major interest, thanks to Radio 1 DJ John Peel picking up on a limited edition blue-vinyl pressing of a song called ‘Slight Return’. Since then they have achieved thirteen top 40 singles and three top 10 albums in the UK charts.
Their most recent album, ‘A New Athens’ was the band’s first major label release in almost a decade. The album was well received by fans and critics alike.
