Songs in Adverts

Hi Frank, I've asked you a few questions on here and you've always been kind enough to reply, which I'm very grateful for, it's pretty cool having a direct line to you without having to join Twitter. I was wondering what your attitude is towards allowing your adverts to be used on adverts? Queen son...

Obligations of Artists

Having watched the Get Better film, a major theme is how it is more difficult for Frank to connect with all his fans as the numbers increase. I know this has come up a few times, and I was wondering what peoples thoughts are? For me, it's pretty much a non-issue. If I go to see any act, to me their ...

Re: Songs on Drugs

Blacking in and out in a strange flat in East London... I know, and there's a few other examples, but it's rarely explicit, especially considering Frank's lyrics tend to be pretty clear and to the point. I'm thinking "Cocaine" by Clapton, "Heroin" by Lou Reed, "MDMA" by Beans on Toast... That song ...

Songs on Drugs

Hey Frank, Just watched the film, very interesting. One thing I learned was that you have a bit more of a taste for hedonism than I was aware of. Unless I'm being completely dense, which is always a possibility, I haven't really seen this reflected explicitely in your music (especially compared to s...

No problems at all in Crawley, seems like we were lucky! Lots of interesting stuff in there, like with the book, not just about Frank, but the general life of a touring musician.

Murdering Barmaid Song

Hi Frank, I was really lucky to get a ticket for that charity gig for War Child at The Monarch. It was really cool, and my personal highlight was a new song about a Irish pub owner who lived in East London a long time ago and killed her husbands. Or something like that. Was expecting to hear it on t...

Re: Ladies of London Town

My point about LIS isn't that I don't like people liking it - it's great, I love it too, a lot. It's just that there is a subset of people who only like that record (which is fair enough) and spend their days telling me they hate the rest of my stuff (less so). Yeah, there's always people who see e...

Re: Ladies of London Town

Haha, as per usual my flippant tone comes across worse when written down. If people like that song, cool. Personally, it doesn't really work for me. Never quite meshes. That's about all. I'll most likely play it out some more sometime. Ah, the only other thing I could really think of was that lines...

Ladies of London Town

"And I’d like to delete the song “The Ladies of London Town” from history for all time."- http://noisey.vice.com/blog/rank-your-records-frank-turner?utm_source=noiseytwitterus Just being emphatic, or do you really hate it?

YouGov Profile of Frank Fans

If you're as bored as I am, you'll have been on the YouGov website, which gives you lots of data on the fans of any thing- https://yougov.co.uk/opi/profileslite#/Frank_Turner/demographics Pointless but interesting (to me anyway). We are on average male, young, lower class, from East Anglia, very lef...

Re: Times interview

Ha, shows how perceptive I am. I thought the headline especially was pretty odd, remarking that Frank is "rather polite". I have about as few connections to the music business as possible, but is it really surprising that you arrange to interview someone and they are polite? I'd find that a bit patr...

Times interview

Just read an interview you did for the Times Saturday Review with Hugo Rifkind, wonder if you have any response? I think it's kind of weird to interview a musician and not even pretend to try to take an interest in their music. And hasn't everyone who is interested heard about the whole "Frank doesn...

Re: CM Punk

I must admit - I had never heard of CM Punk before this video. He's a bit of a legend in modern wrestling, the Punk persona is a legitimate one (which this video proves I guess), he left the WWE basically because he disagreed with the management a lot. He's also known for being intelligent and arti...

Lol, I really need to catch up on my Disney. I knew he'd nicked the "under the sea" bit, but I didn't realise that was the actual song.

New Song for Eva Mae

If you haven't seen this- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-AzqcchRAs4 It's Frank's song for Eva Mae's birthday, and it's brilliant. I'd love to have an extended version released, maybe when we have another three years? I also think this is the first time I've been envious of a five(?) year old girl....
