"As they left the stage I knew, and the crowd knew, that this is a band channeling a buzz that Northern Irish music hasn’t seen in recent years. Tragically... We must now play the cruel waiting game for their debut album. We’re in for a treat, so we are."
"It was a pleasure to have JPL back in Cardiff and playing on such great form; this was a set of winners played with style and heart and it made us all realise how much we’d missed seeing them play."
"I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, this band should have been huge, they’ve got a message, they’ve got hooks, they’ve got riffs and you can bet your life on it that they’ve got songs. Jetplane Landing, first class all the way!"
"After however many years out of the loop, Jetplane Landing are back, if you really thought they were ever gone, and stronger than ever... Roll on JPL5 and the next tour; I’ll be down the front, come say hey."
"Andrew Ferris is at his incensed best, snarling “Hey maggots, get off my turf, I wrote shit like this fucking years ago.” down the mic... In truth, though, there’s barely anybody that’s come close to them in the intervening years."
"More Than Conquerors really seem to have made [Glasgow] their second home and become an honorary member of the local scene. Then again, with music like this, who wouldn't welcome them with open arms?"
Smalltown America talent Little Bear & More Than Conquerors are featured and reviewed on #001 podcast.
