Mark Morriss and the boys continue to go from strength to strength… a tight but lithe sound, with a nod towards psychedelia, classic pop and Madchester swagger.
Formed 1994 in Hounslow; Adam Devlin and Eds Chester with brothers Mark and Scott Morriss gained considerable ink as the “next big thing” in Britpop and 1996’s BLUETONES debut album Expecting to Fly, which included the classic “Slight Return”, was a huge success.
As the Britpop backlash later gained momentum, instead of rehashing old Beatles melodies like their contemporaries, the band instead took a more sensible approach: disregard the press and simply focus on their craft.
Touring and recording superb studio albums including Return to the Last Chance Saloon, Science & Nature and Luxembourg, cemented a diehard fanbase focused on enduring quality and performance. And tunes…
Mainman Mark Morriss remains a prolific songwriter and comsummate performer, a real man of the people and The Bluetones are as relevant now as they have ever been.
