We’re happy to note that it’s already our 1 month birthday and we have yet another mega update for you! Before the list of handy links to the new goodies, we have an extra special update to mention first. If you haven’t heard of or seen Zoran Orlic and his grand book about The Frames, now’s your chance! Zoran has graciously shared select photos and excerpts from his 2006 ode to our favorite band. We are honored and super stoked to bring these gorgeous photos to you, but these are just a part of what is in the book. So many great stories and photos, it’s a must have for any Frames fan, especially those of you who spend a lot of time on this site. We’ve also included a couple of audio clips from the book signing at Gallery Number One in Dublin (comments from Glen and a performance of The Dancer). So go check it out and please let us or Zoran know what you think! In addition to the new section, we are also now featuring some of Zoran’s photos on the homepage!
Now on to the other updates…
We’ve added another new section called Television to keep up with all the lads’ tv performances and interviews (this includes any internet channels/media that don’t fit into the Print section). So far we have about 10 videos/links to videos there (including a Joe interview from 2007 and a 2008 piece on Colm from Imeall)…please send more! We love these.
A few new dates under 2011 including, of course, The Frames’ 30 March performance of For The Birds at Vicar Street, Glen performing on 18 March at Dublin’s St. Patrick’s Day Festival and The Swell Season at Coachella on 16 April! FYI- Rob will be performing with Colm at his Australian dates at the end of the month.
