PLANESPOKEN- Fairfield County Weekly - CT. Press
New York/Connnecticut trio Planeside are torchbearers for meat-and-potatoes 1990s alternative rock, which might seem a bit prematurely retro until you consider the guys have been at it for 10 years. That's an impressive run for a band on the local club scene, where original bands tend to fizzle out and splinter after a couple years. Perhaps Planeside's longevity has something to do with their road-warrior nature. Rather than stew in their own juices in the same five or six area clubs, they do laps around the eastern U.S. Or perhaps it has something to do with the fact that there's something evergreen and appealing in their gutsy riffs and throaty but melodic singing. In any case, Planeside has outlasted countless upstart bands to become a regional institution. - Fairfield Weekly.com.
