Album review: The Frames

image preview

MY OPINION of The Frames has always been skewered towards the negative because of their debut single, the hideously awful 'The Dancer'. The band's knack of repackaging indie and alternative rock for mainstream audiences made them appear edgy to many - but only if you ignored what was going on in indie and alternative rock. Forgive the Indie-snobbery but that did not sit well with me either.

Hot on the heels of the successes of Sean Keane, Mick Hanly, and Paddy Casey during the summer, this newly formed folk club is continuing to attract the best of Ireland’s singer/ songwriters to The Pillar House, Society Street, Ballinasloe.

Vickers Vimy main men Ed Drea and Fintan Hanley write laid back folk tunes in the style of Paul Simon or Jack Johnson. Inspired by the transatlantic flight of the Vickers Vimy from Newfoundland to Clifden, Connemara in 1919, Ed and Fintan wrote and recorded an album. Produced by Daragh O’Toole and mixed by Ger McDonnell, it features Colm Mac Con Iomaire from The Frames and The Swell Season and a good crew of friends and featuring well-known Davitt College Music teacher and school musical producer Eamonn Mulderrig on drums. Vickers Vimy has supported such greats as John Martyn, The Hothouse Flowers, Mundy, The Guggenheim Grotto and Maria Doyle Kennedy, and released the critically acclaimed debut single, ‘Devil on Your Back’ in 2012.
