You know that older kid in school who scares you half to death with his radical ideas, yet you end up getting intrigued even more by his f$#cked up yet interesting way of thinking? No? Well, Eddie Frankel was that dood in my high school. First band I ever heard him sing in was The Inch Lost Touch, a somewhat experimental raw punk thrash band. After he graduated, I heard him scream bloody murder in Cutting Pink With Knives. (Definitely not the song you want to wake your grandma up with on her birthday).
Anyway, I was catching up with him the other day and asked if he was musically active nowadays. It was then that he mentioned his new project, Fair Ohs. When I asked him what kind of sound they had, all he said was “well you know Paul Simon’s solo stuff? Kinda like that, but, you know, punk.”
That being said, I leave you with Summer Lake, one of my favorite from this crazy genre-edifying trio from London. This song is perfect for all those trying to transcend this freezing cold weather, warming their ears with a chubby set of headphones walking the snowy streets of the city. Wherever you may be, this song will take you straight to a sunny beach, sipping a mai thai from a cocktail glass with a tacky tooth-pick umbrella. Enjoy.
I keep waking up by mistake, I keep waking up by mistake…”
