Re: This town ain't big enough

Frank played it at the Winchester Guildhall a few years back. That was my favourite gig.

The Weakerthans Are Gone But We Are Not

My band and I got into the Weakerthans (the greatest band that no longer exist) as a direct result of Frank so we thought we'd do a cover in respect to their recent passing. We really enjoy playing their songs and if it weren't for Frank we wouldn't have that so cheers Frank! (And there's the cover)...

Frank's Cap

You don't see it around so much anymore, but Frank's cap is pretty cool. Now I need a cap; it's sunny; I need to protect myself from the shiny thing in the sky - you know how it is. I've looked and you can't get hold of that particular cap but I was wondering if anyone knew where to get a similar on...

Re: audio book

This would be awesome! I'm truly terrible at reading; I can't keep still for long enough to do it... Audiobooks are the only way I get along with literature.

Re: Thoughts about the 2015 concerts setlist

I mean that seems logical, but so many bands I now love I've discovered due to them supporting Frank. I'd enjoy a longer sets of course but it'd be a shame for us and the non-existent support band to lose out on all the exposure. Besides, I'm not sure Frank would be up for ditching the idea of supp...

Re: Thoughts about the 2015 concerts setlist

Totally agree with the Springsteen comparison why bother with support acts, why not just have Turner on all night with a small intermission each hour so we could all have a toilet /drink /cigarette break. I mean that seems logical, but so many bands I now love I've discovered due to them supporting...

Re: The Mountain Goats

I mean if you're friends(ish) with John K, and he's friends with John Darnielle (of The Mountain Goats), then your half way to liking them already.You have Mountain Goats points as it is.

Re: Just a Ghost of Vaudeville?

Thanks for all the responses! They all raise good points and I shall be thinking about this thread when I play my next gig on Friday. I think the main fault in my argument was that, as Mr/Ms Toes put it,

Definitive Discography?

I'm pretty new here and I was wondering if there was a generally accepted discography of everything Frank has every released? There is the one on his website of course, but it doesn't mention the famous 'Reasons Not To Be An Idiot' single so that isn't complete.. And it doesn't detail each format of...
