The last time we saw Frankie Rose and The Outs, they performed a too-brief seventeen minute set at the Slumberland Anniversary show. My vantage point at Bell House did not give me much of a feel for the band, but the recording captures the particular qualities of this group. Frankie’s experience with garage rock, Spector-style girl groups, and lo-fi all seemed to coalesce with the Outs into a harmony-rich guitar driven quintet with grit. At Monster Island on Saturday, we stood a couple of feet from the band and took in a real appreciation of the group in what would be an eight-song and fortunately longer set than in November. At this point, the band has only released one 7 inch (“Thee Only One” on Slumberland Records), but all the songs still seem vaguely familiar and some were played at Bell House. I expect when all the songs are compiled into an anticipated full length album, it will be a fine collection and a critical success. The quality of the performances bear that out.

Frankie and The Outs have several local gigs upcoming, including this Friday night at Europa, this Sunday night at Mercury Lounge, and an May date at Bell House opening for the Primitives.

We recorded this set with the same equipment and location as the So Cow recording and the sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

    Hey, I just discovered your great website. Brilliant stuff. However I’m wondering why you don’t tag your files? Surely that’s a quick step seeeing how much work you put down on the recording and info about the recordings

    I’d wish you’d been there the night before! I arrived just in time for the last song, but never got vocals..
