Fabulous band. They played one of their first ever gigs for Lexapalooza last year, and I love them very much. All thoroughly nice chaps.
Seconded, and if you like their first album check out The Dawn Chorus they feature several of the guys from The RSP and you can pick up their last album for free on bandcamp as well. They did an Addistock Session as well which you can view here - http://addistock.wordpress.com/

I haven't read all the posts in this thread, so not sure if anyone has mentioned The Smith Street Band. He played with them in Oz, they are well worth a listen. The 'No one gets lost anymore' album is very good.

Turning this around... the person that turned me onto Frank was Billy Bragg.

I've just read this thread for the first time and I can't wait to sample some of this music that has been mentioned here :)

To turn it around, I got into Frank Turner because of The Gaslight Anthem who I first discovered because of Springsteen. Now they are pretty much my 3 favourite musicians/bands. :D

So, after becoming a big Ben Marwood fan, you can add JLandTSS to the list.

Frank got me into several bands/artists who I really should have listened to before he came along! Such as Black Flag and Springsteen.

Also his Irish support act Ciarán Lenehan is really good, and I have Frank to thank (hehe) for that!

Sean Mcgowan (kind of, I met him before Frank's gig in Southampton) - he's really worth a listen!
Tim OT (also met him at Frank's gig in Southampton)
