The Bluetones continue their renaissance with another tour, which calls in at Norwich Arts Centre this Saturday (8pm).

The release of 1995's Are You Blue or Are You Blind? marked the start of a chart career which has included 13 hits so far, most notably their classic 1996 number two (and playlist-hugger) Slight Return.

Their debut album Expecting to Fly went straight into the album chart at number one.

The 'Tones have been lumped in with the whole Britpop thing. But unlike other bands you might name, they didn't look to the likes of the Beatles and the Kinks, but, instead, looked over to the Atlantic for inspiration to the likes of Buffalo Springfield and Neil Young.

The band were reunited with producer Hugh Jones for their eponymous fifth album and then there's the career-spanning singles and B-sides album A Rough Outline, and they will be releasing a BBC Radio Sessions CD soon.
