About Mr. Airplane Man

Mr. Airplane Man is a mishmash of deep love for Mississippi hill country blues, Memphis weirdo rocknroll, drony VU, and dreamy yearning pop.

Formed in San Francisco and then Boston in the late 90s, Mr. Airplane Man (Margaret Garrett on guitar, slide guitar, and vocals, and Tara McManus on drums, vocals, and occasional Farfisa organ) was sprung from the same swamp that spit out the Cramps, Gun Club, Modern Lovers, Mazzy Star and the nastier, dirtier bits of Led Zeppelin, and were delivered by the Holy Spirit to the Temple of the Blues and Boogie, final resting place for their heroes, Fred McDowell, Jessie Mae Hemphill and Howlin’ Wolf.

Their uniquely sexy swamp blues, psychedelic pop, and other-worldly spirituals quickly earned them a huge following, and they toured with like-minded miscreants such as Morphine, White Stripes, the Dirtbombs, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Holly GoLightly, Reigning Sound and many more, releasing three full-length albums of hypnotic blues and idiosyncratic rock and roll for infamous label Sympathy for the Record Industry, not to mention two sessions on the BBC for the legendary John Peel.

Their music has been featured in a variety of TV shows and films, including multiple episodes of The L Word and the film Crazy Eyes. After taking a break to have babies and create other untold chaos, Mr. Airplane Man is back to deliver the goods, a much needed cure for these troubled times.
