About Cranes

As one of the major players in the UK's original shoegaze scene, along with groups such as Slowdive, Lush, and Ride, Cranes were one of the first rock bands to put the seaside town of Portsmouth on the musical map. A series of high-profile shows in 1992 supporting the Cure on a world tour, (including a show at The Point in Dublin),  opened the gates to a wider audience.  They released several albums on the label Dedicated, three of which Wings Of Joy (1991),  Forever (1993) and Loved (1994), were re-issued in 2009 on Cherry Red due to popular demand.  Since 1997, the group-- led by brother and sister Jim and Alison Shaw-- has taken intermittent breaks; the release of Future Songs in 2001 on their own label Dadaphonic was followed by a live album and then  Particles and Waves in 2004 with their most recent full-length, Cranes appearing in 2008
