      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Born at the tail end of Madchester, the Frank and Walters have been criminally overlooked. Purveyors of tunes that are adept at grabbing your attention and not letting go till you've manhunted down that hard to find early e.p. Trains, Boats and Planes remains the Frank and Walters best album to date because of the startling array of strong singles it produced. In the week that corkonians took over top of the pops, 'After All' beamed into millions of sitting rooms and we all shed a tear. Their time had come. Alas that was the last time they stood on the hollowed turf. While 'After All' deserved its moment, 'This is not a Song' will forever remain a lost classic. Capable of turning Vinny Jones into a cry-baby this is what the Beatles had intended it to be all about. Short, sweet and still capable of producing that same rush on the 100th listen. At this stage in their career the Franks were the king japers, cartoon characters who inhabited moo moo land. Perhaps it was this laissez faire attitude that held them back from attaining the pop crowns that they truly deserved (and still do). Listen to the lyrics on 'Fashion Crisis Hits New York' and giggle to yourself. It’s slight, momentary and the most important song you'll hear all year. 'Walter's Trip' and 'Happy Busman' are joie de vivre indie classics and can be heard in all good alternative clubs. The Franks time may yet come but in the interim, low will be always be high because for the converted they've weaved a daisychain around our hearts. So start eating that cutlery before it gets rusty.
