Frank is brilliant. I'm in love with the title track off that CD at the moment. Sleep Is For The Week has virtually been on repeat on my PC for the past year or so.

love, ire and song is such a great record, and a huge step up from SIFTW.
he's also awesome live and constantly tours which means i see him craploads.

Haven't heard anything from the newest album but he is good. Loved his covers on that split with the guy from Onelinedrawing.

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

^ he's done two albums, love ire and song being the most recent. sleep is for the week was the first one, theres a bunch of great tracks on there too, mostly about drinking and not really getting anywhere in life. the EP, campfire punk rock, was a little average, and the demo is pretty much just a few early versions of tracks that made it onto SIFTW

theres also a 7" split with reuben and a 12" split with jonah matranga floating about, plus a dvd i believe. and then the mp3's of him doing old million dead stuff.

id recommend the 12" and sleep is for the week, its a little different to love ire and song but good all the same.

i think a lot of people would if they gave it a listen, his songwriting is very accessible and down to earth, such is his style. plus his lyrics cover a lot of things that people of a certain mindset could relate to.

He's okay. I much much prefer Al Baker, who sounds quite similar but is wayyy better. http://www.myspace.com/alandhisguitar

Bit too country for my taste.
For some reason I'm just not liking his voice (maybe it's one of those things that grows on you....?).

Read this, it's about Frank trying to get Long Live the Queen into the download charts because the proceeds are going to Breast Cancer Campaign

Plus the B-sides will be awesome, comes out on the 20th, so make sure if you want it, then download it THAT WEEK or it won't get in the charts

I love Frank Turner, just simply amazing music, some really catchy tunes and some very awesome lyrics (Fathers day takes my breath away) gah i just can't describe how much i love it. Heard reasons not to be an idiot on the radio the other day, pumped up the jam in my flat and went wild while everyone else looked a tad bemused, but they loved it.

i loved million dead, only just listened to frank turner, love ire and song album, only listened to it once, first impression was that it was quite good but nothing special need to give it a spin a few more times
