The Bluetones formed in hometown Hounslow, and lived with fellow Britpoppers Dodgy. Led by the Morriss brothers, the four-piece gathered a substantial following and releases on their own Superior Quality Recordings label sold well. A deal with A&M led to nationwide success: 'Slight Return' debuted at UK No.2. Expecting To Fly (1996) hit No.1 and the singles 'Cut Some Rug' and 'Marblehead Johnson' both reached the UK Top 10. They returned in 1998 with 'Solomon Bites The Worm' and Return To The Last Chance Saloon.
