Description:

Mr. Airplane Man was a Boston duo, Margaret Garrett (guitar, vocals) and Tara McManus (drums, keyboards), who have been playing since 1996. They named themselves after a Howlin' Wolf song. Friends since grade school, their obsession with rock and roll and blues music inspired the band. They began playing on the street and by 1999 they were voted Best New Local Act by readers of the Boston Phoenix. Margaret and Tara have created a unique niche for themselves, a raw and real hypnotic, mesmerizing sound that borrows equally from blues icons like Howlin' Wolf and proto-garage bands like Boston's The Lyres. They quickly won a whole string of heavyweight admirers, from Morphine's late Mark Sandman, who taught Margaret how to play guitar to Greg Cartwright of the Oblivians and the Reigning Sound. They released during first mid-2000s three full-length album on Sympathy for the Record Industry and played with bands like the White Stripes and the Strokes. John Peel discovered them and had them do several sessions. They toured all around America and Europe. Mr Airplane Man's story ended up in 2006. This album is a witness of their early days as a band. It captures their very first studio experience and the very deep and true essence of what Mr Airplane Man became later on. Partly produced and recorded by Mark Sandman. Originally self-released in 1998 on CD by the band, it had to wait 15 years to finally be released on a proper vinyl. One time 1000 copies pressing. Silk-screened cover on tobacco cardboard.
