Today I heard the sad news that one of my all time favourite bands, The Bluetones, are to split in September. The Bluetones never really hit the heady heights of their Brit Pop contemporaries Oasis and Blur, but in this writers opinion, were far superior to both in all departments. They never got involved with stupid slagging matches a la Damon Albarn and the Gallagher brothers, they just got on with releasing great albums and playing fantastic live shows.
So, in honour of this great band calling it a day, I decided that my international audience should get to enjoy this brilliant 4 piece from London. I hope you enjoy these tracks as much as I do!
So that's it, my tribute to one of the best bands of the last 20 years. I hope you enjoyed it.
