Starfighter Pilot is the debut EP from Snow Patrol, on the Electric Honey label, released on 15 June 1997.[1] The EP was released under the name Polarbear, the band's second name after Shrug; the name Polarbear was later changed to Snow Patrol because the band had discovered the existence of another group with that name.[2]

Information[edit]

The song "Starfighter Pilot" was later featured on the band's debut album, Songs for Polarbears, and was later released as the fourth and final single from the album.[3]

The EP remains a rare find and is popular among collectors; the song "Holy Cow" later appeared as a bonus track on the U.S. release of "Songs for Polarbears".[4] The song "Safety" though, has not been released anywhere else, nor has the EP been re-issued.
