The Blue Nile Biography
The lineup of The Blue Nile is:
Paul Buchanen (songwriter/vocal/guitar/synth)
Robert Bell (synth)
Paul Joseph Moore (piano/synth)
The trio released their outstanding first album, Walking on Rooftops in 1984 to wide critical acclaim and went into the studio in 1985 to begin their followup release. Relentless perfectionists, they constantly scrapped versions of the record, feeling unable to match their early success. Their second release Hats was not released until 1989 and eclipsed the acclaim of their first album. It has in fact remained the quintessential The Blue Nile classic. But it's not the music alone that make this band exceptional, it's the quality and visual appeal that their lyrics evoke. The Blue Nile has affirmed their fascination with the imagery of the great American film-noir, where neon lights, rain-soaked city streets and desolate bars create the landscapes where the characters live out their lost dreams of love.
The Blue Nile's most recent release, and their third is Peace At Last, which was released in 1996. It too received critical acclaim for it's somber ballads, heart-wrenching emotion and romantic optimism.

The Blue Nile are simply Glasgow's finest and probably the best band to come out of Scotland,their songs are so atmospheric that they seem to capture the subject of the song within the music,Paul Buchanan to release a solo album 21/05/12[getting great reviews],let's hope it is just a short break the band are having as they must have one more album in them.

I had heard of The Blue Nile, but had never heard their music. At all. Then, thanks to good riends, I went to see them in concert, May 2006. I have never heard anything like it...this band are incredible. For those not in the know (I've spent ages researching them since) they typically release an album every 5 or 6 years. They are an enigma. The driver is Paul Buchanan, the writer, composer and singer and lead guitarist. If you EVER have the chance to see them, do so. You'll thank me :)
I thought I'd seen great concerts and great bands, but this blew me away !
