NEW FIND: THE FRANK & WALTERS
Most of what is sent my way isn't worth mentioning, but the highlight of my mailbox comes when I get cd's like the ones that arrived today from an Irish band from Cork called THE FRANK & WALTERS. I guess their latest record is out on FIFA Records and is called 'Souvenirs', which I think is brilliant. These guys are for fans of The Jam, Belle & Sebastian, Pavement and The Smiths.
They've been around for some time, releasing records on Setanta since the mid '90's but have only just started reaching over to the US. 'Souvenirs' was nominated for the 'Best Irish Album' 2005 Meteor Award up against U2 and Damien Dempsey.
I'll have a track for you on FUTURE SOUNDS 23.
