THE FRAMES


Ah, look how young they were there. Yeah, you must know The Frames by now. This is the third time I've posted about them.

One wonderful blog reader recently gave me a link to a bunch of their recordings I didn't yet have. The highlight of those was the 4-song demo EP they put out around the time of their second album, Fitzcarraldo, which is also when this pic was taken.

The demos are far too good to keep to myself, so here they are, along with a few other goodies from the early days for good measure. Big big thanks to Chris on this one.

(files expired)

The Angel At My Table demo EP:
The Frames DC - "Angel At My Table" (Demo)
The Frames DC - "Revelate" (Demo)
The Frames DC - "Fitzcarraldo" (Demo)
The Frames DC - "Denounced" (Demo)

A few other things:
The Frames - "Life's A Gas" (T. Rex cover) From the Turn On Your Record Player EP.
The Frames - "Last Song To You" B-side of "The Dancer" single.
The Frames - "Stamp My Name" B-side of "The Dancer" CD single.
The Frames - "Teardrops In My Wine" B-side of the "Masquerade" single.

There's still several more b-sides and rarities that I don't have, so if there's anyone out there that's got some goodies and is willing to share, feel free to drop me a line.

Switching modes from Ireland over to Scotland, there's a short acoustic set from The Proclaimers available to stream over at NPR. It's from their appearance at Mountain Stage in West Virginia earlier this year.

why has one Proclaimer twin got fat while the other is still skinny???

I'm thinking maybe the guitar is better exercise than the harmonica?

I suppose I should add that I play no instruments and, perhaps as a result, have packed on more weight than either in the same time frame.

Hi there - The Inevitable Collapse of Optimism [Glen Hansard] can be listened to here:

The front and back of the Chinese Firedrill compilation album cover are shown on the vid - the back cover appears about halfway in.

Thanks for that.

I'd love to hear the Frames demos, any chance you could put them up again?
