Aeroplane Co-Pilot Stephen Fasano Leaves Group


In a shocking turn, disco maestros Aeroplane have ejected one of their co-pilots. According to a posting on their Facebook page, Aeroplane will continue as a solo act, helmed by Vito DeLuca: “Since the last months, Stephen [Fasano]’s vision and mine were going different ways. That is the reason why we decided that one of us should leave Aeroplane. Not to destroy it, but to make it last. Discussions were intense, and emotional, but Stephen is leaving me in charge of our baby. I will be, from now on, the one and only member of Aeroplane.”

DeLuca goes on to explain that despite working with Fasano for nearly three years as Aeroplane and for over seven years in total, he recently became responsible for more of the music production. He stresses that they parted ways amicably, and that Fasano will soon bring to light some of his own music projects.

This news comes following a successful U.S. tour that ended last week and a few months before their debut album is due to drop. No word yet on whether the release will be affected.

Jen is a lifelong NJ native, except for a brief stint in the UK as a disaffected youth in the late '80s and a recent stint in Mexico as a disaffected adult. She began writing at the age of seven (a series about a dog named Freddy), went on to interview Ralph Nader in high school, started interviewing bands like The Verve and Slowdive during college, and later profiled Orbital, Meat Beat Manifesto, Autechre, and more for the now defunct DAMn! magazine. Jen spends her free time interviewing bands for Prefix, traveling, taking pictures, seeing live music/DJs, DJ'ing, making plans, and generally being way too busy. Jen loves music, animals (most of all her cat, Teddy), movies, Lost, traveling, taking pictures, good food/drink, creative pursuits in general, and making lists. Jen hates bugs, meat, death, being sick, conservatives, boring people, narrow-minded people, rude people, stupid people, mean people, people who can't drive, and probably a lot of other kinds of people. Jen is a Scorpio. She has way too many magazine subscriptions and condiments. Jen would most like to interview Duran Duran, Richard D. James, Carlos D, and any other musicians who have a "D" featured prominently in their name. Last but not least, Jen hopes that this year she will finally write -- and finish -- that book she's been planning to write.
