The Frank & Walters – Funky Cold Medina

We could probably all the tell the game was up when Niall absconded and they started using gimmicks like cute girls on keyboards but we all just chose to close our eyes and block our ears and just dream that the most underrated band to emerge from these shores would finally reach the promised land. The return while glorious in its live incarnation never truly ignited in the studio but no matter how many times the Franks shimmer into view smiles are guaranteed to follow. Sigur Ros may have invented their own language but this Cork threesome were there nearly a decade earlier. It was funnier too especially as it spouted from a collection of hairstyles as lavish those found in Africa’s largest pride. Here’s a cover of Tone Lōc’s ‘Funky Cold Medina’ that the band released as a b-side on one of their iconic early singles (After All). Despite a suspended official website the F&W are current planning a small tour around wee Scotland. With Christmas coming some dates back home are inevitable. KD
