Jetplane Landing

"Jetplane Landing" are a four piece band from Derry (Northern Ireland) and London (England). They comprise "Andrew Ferris" (Lead Vocals/Guitar), "Jamie Burchell" (Bass/Vocals), "Cahir O’Doherty" (Guitar/Vocals) and Raife Burchell (Drums). Jamie and Raife are brothers. Their musical influences include - "At The Drive-In" (the band's name comes from an observation that At The Drive-In sounded like a jet plane landing, made by a band friend) "Helmet", "Soundgarden", "Blues Explosion", "Fugazi", "Shellac", "Big Black", "Pavement", "Rage Against The Machine", "AC/DC", "Robbie Robertson", "Bruce Springsteen" and "Elvis Costello"

The debut album "Zero For Conduct" (Smalltown America 2001) is a mixture of singer songwriter standards and post-hardcore exploration. A flurry of media attention in the UK saw the band accelerated to the fore-front of a burgeoning guitar rock scene and the record spawned the minor indie hit 'This Is Not Revolution Rock'.
