BC Camplight

“The Shortly After Takeoff album tour is a pent up beast. The state of the world means the dates have shifted again. But, make no mistake, these shows will happen and it will be next-level joyous.” Quote from Brian (BC Camplight)

What was Philadelphia’s loss is Manchester’s gain, with the inimitable force behind BC Camplight, Brian Christinzio.

Fired by his ongoing battle with mental illness, Shortly After Takeoff is the final, and finest, chapter of what Christinzio calls his Manchester Trilogy following 2015’s How To Die In The North and 2018’s Deportation Blues. All three albums were created after the native Philadelphian had moved to Manchester, and span the singer-songwriter’s classicism, gnarly synth-pop and ‘50s rock’n’roll style.

A guy “who maybe lives a little hard” and is “in the thick of some heavy stuff”, just days before How To Die In The North was released, Christinzio was deported and banned from the UK. Estranged from his new home, his girlfriend and his dog, unable to promote his album and back home with his parents, Christinzio sunk deep into the dark. This “heavy stuff” is before his father unexpectedly died, just days before Deportation Blues was released. “But as a result”, he explains, “I think I’ve made my best record.”

This latest record, is his best, most honest, open and frequently heart-breaking work.
