Additional Information:

Jetplane Landing come of age on their third studio album, recorded at the legendary Southern Studios with Harvey Birrell (Therapy?, Shudder To Think, Buzzcocks). The band make a stratospheric artistic leap on 'Backlash Cop' - the follow up to 2003's critically lauded 'Once Like A Spark' and 2001's 'Zero For Conduct'. Bristling with creative energy the quartet somersault and back-flip through genres on their most eclectic offering yet. From the old school hip hop of title track 'Backlash Cop' to the Minutemen-checking funk of 'Lungs Of Punk'; the classic soul groove of 'Sam Cooke' versus the spoken word provocation of 'Us And The Ringside Stars' this is a thrilling ride.

Jam-packed, with historical references both lyrically and musically the band ambitiously tackle subject matter as diverse as Dizzy Gillespie's 1964 US presidential campaign to frustration at not hearing enough Les Savy Fav on the radio. Audacious and far-reaching; brace yourself for thirty seven minutes of ferocious guitar trickery; thought provoking lyricism and crushingly funky drumming on 2007's most surprising record yet.

Press:

Q: "This is a fiercely intelligent peice of work, ranging from punk to jazz fusion and the occasional surprise: most notably when Andrew Ferris drops the Zack De La Rocha routine to give a brief lecture on middleweight boxing in Us And The Ringside Stars."

Kerrang: "It's been almost four years since the DIY crusaders released their masterful second album 'Once Like A Spark'. Delightfully stubborn and sworn enemies of convention, their long-awaited new album eschews their usual heady mix of Fugazi angular diversions and precise Helmet riffing. They've instead written an ambitious funk-tinged concept album celebrating African-American icons - jazz legends Dizzy Gillespie, poet Sonia Sanchez and '80s middleweight boxers - and New York punk-funk oddballs Les Savy Fav. Dripping with fervent soul and the best riffs Tom Morello never wrote, 'Backlash Cop' is a brave and rewarding departure for this headstrong quartet." KKKK

Drowned In Sound: "By its very nature, it’ll split both the fanbase and the casual listener alike, but stick it out and you’ll discover just how impressive Backlash Cop actually is." 9/10
