Powered by Audioscrobbler™Mr. Airplane Man is a Boston duo, Margaret Garrett (guitar, vocals) and Tara McManus (drums, keyboards), who have been playing since 1996. They named themselves after a Howlin' Wolf song. Their obsession with rock and roll music since early high school inspired the band. They began playing on the street and by 1999 they were voted Best New Local Act by readers of the Boston Phoenix.

They recorded their first full-length record in March 2001. It was raw and real. They played with the White Stripes and the Strokes, as well as local Boston garage rockers, Lyres. When they recorded their second record, Moanin', they got to work with Jim Diamond and Greg "Oblivion" Cartwright. John Peel soon discovered them too and had them do a session. This led to their first European tour, which was highly successful.

Mr. Airplane Man played many large tours of America in 2003. In the meantime they were back in Memphis where they recorded their third record, C'mon DJ. The new record came out in January 2004.
One of their songs "commit a crime" was also used in Showtimes hit lesbian drama "The L Word"
