Baltic Fleet is the work of Warrington based musician Paul Fleming. Baltic Fleet released their self titled debut album in 2008. The album was named in Rough Trade's top 50 albums of 2008 at number 29. Fleming produced the album using a laptop and any instruments that came to hand whilst he toured with Liverpool Post Punk band Echo & The Bunnymen. Fleming has also played keyboards on Echo & The Bunnymen studio albums Siberia and The Fountain.
Baltic Fleet influences include Brian Eno, My Life in the Bush of Ghosts, Bowie's 'Low', Neu!, The Virgin Suicides and Eric Satie. Clash magazine have described Baltic Fleet as an audio diarist due to the transient nature of his production.
Collaborators of Baltic Fleet have included Will Sergeant of Echo & The Bunnymen and Simon Finley from Sound of Guns. The debut album was mixed by Nick Terry who has previously mixed albums for The Klaxons and Simian Mobile Disco. Baltic Fleet only played one live show to promote the album at The Paradiso, Amsterdam with Florence and the Machine and The Ting Tings.
The second Baltic Fleet album is due for release in 2011.
