The Frank and Walters (1991 Session)

frankandradiohead

The Frank and Walters were formed in 1990 by Paul Linehan (vocals/bass), his brother Niall Linehan (guitar) (replaced by Kevin Pedreschi in 2004) and Ashley Keating (drums). The band’s name honoured two eccentric Cork characters of the day. This session was recorded for the Dave Fanning show in March 1991. The Frank and Walters signed to Setanta Records in 1991 and released two EPs the aptly titled ‘EP1’ followed by ‘EP2’. Ashley Keating presents ‘Green on Red‘ a weekly show on Sunday from 7-10pm on Cork’s RedFM dedicated to “the best of irish music” . Thank you to the folks over at the F&W Forum who had the three missing session tracks.
