Re: Richard Thompson (Gloom and Doom From The Tomb)

Richard is amazing live. Have seen him many times and he blows me away every time. Regarding the audience rapport - he comes across a bit posh, but he has a great sense of humour, the times I have seen him anyway. He was the Mojo interview guest at Cambridge Folk Festival once (which Frank did a few...

Podcast with the Craig Finn/the Hold Steady

Anybody bound for LE3 (and anyone else interested of course) may enjoy listening to this podcast with Craig Finn from the Hold Steady. The interview is done by Joe Pug, who I am a big fan of. It is a real fun chat to listen to.

Springsteen on Broadway

Hi Frank. I just saw the video in which you talk about dancing with a porn star, as you do.. I noticed you wearing a Springsteen On Broadway T-shirt.
Was wondering if you have been to the show and if so, what you thought of it.

P.S. Re post above - a couple of people on the FT Army were wondering about this too.

Re: Show 2000 DVD - additional question

Hi Frank. Saw your tweet about Zürich being the loudest crowd since show #2000. That made me think of this.
Is a standalone DVD still in the pipeline?
I didn’t buy the box it came in as am not a format junkie - I just want to have everything once.
Would love to be able to re-live that show!

Festival reviews

Just back from a festival trip, which was non-Frank this year. Can't have it all. Thought I'd share my reviews here. Some old favourites and lots of new discoveries - and a heatwave!

Re: Double Album?

Folk singer Kirsty Merryn has released an album with songs about historical women. Similar idea it seems.

Railway crowdfunder

The Railway Inn in Winchester has a crowdfunding project going on. Thought I'd share here as it is a place where Frank has played often.

Lists!

Always love seeing what other people consider best albums/gigs of the year. I do find it a bit disheartening seeing list after list with St Vincent, Lorde, Kendrick Lamar etc. I do not know a single person who is into those albums, but they seem highly regarded by the powers that be... These were my...

Re: Show 2000 DVD

Hi again Frank.
Will there be a standalone version of the Show 2000 DVD or some other bundle to get it in?
I am a CD buyer. Of course I want the album with the new versions, but I already have the 'Get Better' DVD and vinyl is of little use to me.
Love the sound on the new song by the way.
