The Frank and Walters – Fashion Crisis Hits New York

It’s weird.  I remember this band as being kind of cutesy in a faux naive, butter wouldn’t melt, I’m just going to play a ukelele and watch Pokemon or something way.  The sort of band who would make Belle and Sebastian seem like Slipknot.  But they’re not like that, really.  There’s something quite… ambitious – dare I say, quietly confident – to it.  I hear hints of Bob Mould and Robyn Hitchcock in the mix of soaring guitars and eccentric lyrics.

OK, the lyrics are a bit rubbish.

Overall, though, a solid tune.
