The Sailplanes are :
Having toiled separately in lesser groups for some time, noise guitarist Tim and songwriter Stacey formed The Sailplanes in early 2005 through a mutual interest in bands such as Electrelane, Sonic Youth and Sleater-Kinney. They write songs that aim to strip arty rock to it's basic components. Bass-less and brisk, The Sailplanes are a breath of fresh air.
"Taut, unsettling, unusually cinematic art-rock that conjures up black and white dreams of knife-wielding girls and breathless chases down narrow streets in some romantic old European capital." – GIITTV Zine
"an articulate disaffection and anger that is matched perfectly by the calm yet frantic music that perfectly balances noise and melody, beauty and self-destruction." – Ian Viggars for Joyzine
