We're back! I know we weren't away for very long, but next month we'll be busy recording and you'll fondly remember the month of February when you could see The Sailplanes at least once a week, providing you lived in Greater London.

London, NW1 9NX
(Near Camden Town Tube Station)
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. Tim and Stacey trade urgent vocals, wiry guitars tangle and tussle and a passing Sonic Youth wind down their window, peer over their shades and murmur approval before heading off to all buy fur coats. (GIITTV Zine)
Take the same pounding industrial rhythms of early Pitchshifter, throw in slabs of fuzzed up guitar riffs not seen since Ministry attempted to do New Wave so darkly, and a vocal style that?s as manic as prime The Presidents Of The United States Of America...great stuff! (Jeremy Chick, www.subba-cultcha.com)
... they may be young, but somehow they can remember when Riot Grrl was a major force in comtemporary music. There's plenty of distorted guitars, screeched vocals ('Sometimes She Pisses Me Off' is a particular highlight) and frantic drumming that brings to mind Babes In Toyland. (Nightshift, Oxford)
