[ Paper Fleet] is an underground independent rock group from Brooklyn, New York.

History of the band

Paper Fleet formed in 2003 with former Ottomen member "Angry Jim" Campbell (Guitar/Vocals) and Josh Inman (Drums/Vocals). In 2005, bassist John TerLouw completed the original line-up, and in September 2007, Jon Mann joined the group as a second guitarist.
The band played their first show in July 2003 with fellow NYC band caUSE co-MOTION and California's Red Pony Clock at Fort Awesome in Brooklyn. Subsequent shows followed at Tommy's Tavern, Sin-e, Luna Lounge and Cake-Shop, among other NYC venues.
Paper Fleet's first official release, "Trapped Inside" (OTTV001), was released on Ottomen Records in December 2005. The limited edition first pressing is on white vinyl and features "Be Your Man", "Sneak Out", "Sittin' In The Ocean" and "Sleepwalker". Certain early demos (CD-only) were sold exclusively at shows under the title "Here I Am Again".
"Trapped Inside" was followed by the release of the Fleet's first full-length album, "Hi, Sailor!" on St. Patrick's Day, 2008. The album serves as the document of Paper Fleet's 2006-07 output and contains fourteen tracks, including "Brighton Beach," "Don't Rush Off," "Lunette" and "Cuban-Dominican".
Jim, a free-lance illustrator and comic artist, moonlights with the Meathaus comic book collective and provides album and poster art for the band.
