Bluetones first reformed last year (2015) for a 20th anniversary reunion tour.The band had originally called it a day with a farewell UK tour in 2011.

The Hounslow band scored their biggest hit in 1996 with ‘Slight Return’. The song peaked at Number Two on the UK’s Official Singles Chart.

The song was taken from their debut album ‘Expecting To Fly’, which briefly knocked Oasis‘ ‘(What’s The Story) Morning Glory?’ off the top of the UK albums chart in February of that year.
