Flightside

Flightside were a UK-based lo-fi post-grunge band formed in Uxbridge, England in 1992. The line up consisted of Sarah Eaglesfield (keys/vocals), Paul Cormack (guitar) and ex-Velveto drummer Mark Parton. Although Cormack and Eaglesfield had previously known each other in Birmingham, the three came together as a band whilst working on the 'flightside' (the area past the security checks) at Heathrow Airport.

Eaglesfield used her own publication Waxstreet Dive to raise awareness of the band and publicise their initial gigs. Showing influences such as The Birthday Party, Crime and the City Solution and Einst├╝rzende Neubauten they won the award for Best Student Band in the 1992 UK University Unsigned Awards, which led to them being signed by Bang Boom Krash.
