Catfish 5th February 2021
"The Terraplanes are an extraordinary blues band with a debut E.P that's quite simply superb!"
- Blues Matters Magazine, Dec 2020
Catfish is British R'n'B at it's best!
A one hundred mile an hour joyride of fat guitar riffs, hard hitting drum and bass guitar groove and raw, soulful harmonica cries supporting a fast paced, witty, observational lyric about a well dressed man with a love of guns, drugs and fast cars.
Without doubt one of the most exciting blues bands around. Hailing from Bristol UK, The Terraplanes mix the styles of country blues and 60's British R'n'B to create their own brand of jumpin' blues that has seen the popularity of the group grow hugely in the last 12 months.
With the coronavirus clearly beginning to make a huge impact worldwide, the band decided to go ahead and release their debut E.P Midnight Train in May 2020 rather than wait, a decision that proved to be an inspired one as the E.P was and still is getting regular radio play around the UK and beyond. Both the independent blues radio shows and the BBC upload shows have played all the tracks from the E.P
"A brilliant band full of energy and hard hitting traditional blues vibes..I love It!"
- Adam Crowther, BBC Upload Nov 2020
Eventually the E.P was the tenth most played album in 2020 on the UK Independent Blues Broadcasters Association (IBBA) chart.
Formed in 2013 as a duo, Nick and Eduardo eventually expanded the band to a 4 piece in 2014. The chemistry between the two founding members is the driving force of the band and their reputation as a formidable live act continued to grow throughout the following few years until they broke out of their local scene. Under the wing of MAS records, a scheme with patrons such as former Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant. MAS Records provide mentorship and guidance to aspiring bands to help them achieve their goals. The band grabbed this opportunity with both hands and have been on the rise ever since.
Full page interviews in such prestigious blues publications as "Blues In Britain" and "Blues Matters" magazines have now cemented the bands position at the forefront of the UK blues scene.
The band are now looking forward to recording an album in 2021 to follow up their breakthrough success and hopefully a return to the music scene we all love and remember.
