I was watching an interview yesterday where you were talking about Jim Lockey & The Solemn Sun.
So, I went and had a listen to them, and thought they were alright. I'd like to get into them, could you recommend certain tracks to listen to, that would make a Frank Turner fan enjoy their work?
Cheers Frank:)

Dude, thanks so much for posting this! I've had this video on repeat all morning. Infectious song! Do you think they're likely to play it at the Barfly?

I better get cracking on the new album then, two days to learn some songs!

Also, does anyone know anywhere I can purchase the CD and get an immediate digital download of the album???

I'm kind of old-fashioned in the sense that I love having a physical copy of an album. Whilst buying from iTunes is very handy, it's just not the same, and I love adding to my CD collection too much. Plus I want to make sure the artist benefits as much as possible from my purchase. But I won't be able to visit an indie record shop or order online to receive it in time.

I reckon it's likely that they'll play it. Jim often plays it unplugged in the center of the crowd towards the end of the set.

The video was when I put them on last year. That was easily one of my favourite gigs.

Reviewed the album for punktastic.com It's incredible- definite album of the year contender (if we can speak of such things so soon into 2012!)
