Arriving at the fag end of the Britpop explosion, the Bluetones’ debut, Expecting To Fly, rocketed to the top of the charts in 1996. They survived the genre’s comedown to release a clutch of psychedelic-flavoured indie rock albums but now, after 15 years, the band are bowing out with
a farewell tour that arrives in London this week.
