  • Description

    Hailing from Heston in West London, The Bluetones (Scott Morriss - bass, Eds Chesters - drums, Adam Devlin - guitars, and Mark Morriss - vocals) arrived on the scene in 1995 with their debut single 'Are You Blue Or Are You Blind?'. They followed this up with 'Bluetonic' and then 'Slight Return', which reached #2 on the UK Singles Chart. Those two singles are included on their debut album, 'Expecting to Fly', which was released in February 1996, and went straight to #1. The album also contains the hit single 'Cut Some Rug'.
