"It's come around again - it's time for creativity and change; we need the voice of the people to emerge again and, as in the 1960s, inspired musicians play a key role. The Cheshire Plane have harnessed the spirit and creative approach found in the famous 'Nuggets' compilation. These tracks take me back to the genesis of West Coast rock - but with a British twist. Punching, floating, mesmerizing, swinging, even crooning: it's here, and it all rocks! There are no crash-landings here" - P.H.Ellson (Strife)
"Nice work.....the new record has that Doors/Airplane thing that kind of creeps up and grabs you."
Fran Ashcroft - Record Producer
"Cheshire Plane has been compared to The Doors, and not without reason, but rather than being a straightforward homage to vintage West Coast music, this sound is filtered through an English lens, with English lyrical references and hints of more recent British psych bands."
My thanks goes out to (in no particular order) Paul H. Ellson, Simon J. and Tina Newbury, George Borowski, Nick Saloman, Emitt Rhodes, John Reid, Jonathan Tarplee, Dayve Dean, Haylee Strangelove and Paul Senior, Oli Ng, Jordan Copeland, The Sladen family, Angus McTwangstick, Tim Lee, The Active Listener, all the late '60's bands, and the long-suffering Elaine - all of whom (whether they know it or not) encourage and inspire me.
Thank you one and all!
