What better way to relax after a gig than to dress festively and pose near a decorated plant wearing shades! Thanks for all the support during the year and to the lunatics who made it to the gig last night in The Pavilion in Cork.

Happy Christmas from the Frank and Walters

Paul, Ash, Rory and Cian want to wish indie kids everywhere a very happy Christmas. It’s been a great year that’s seen us tour with Carter USM, 2 trips to France, gigs in Hungary and Croatia, (where we invented the “Statue Re-enactment”) and recorded a brand new album due for release next February.

The final gig of the year will be our annual Franks Christmas Show on tonight the 23rd of December in the Pavillion, which will see the first outing of a few new songs!

For now we’ll leave you with our Franks Christmas song which we released last Christmas “Song for a Future Love”. Happy Christmas folks!

Table Tennis Deathmatch: The Franks’ Paul Linehane versus RedFM’s Dave Mac

This Friday night will see a clash of the Table Tennis Titans: The Frank and Walters’ Paul Linehane takes on Red FM’s Dave Mac in a table tennis match held in Curran’s Restaurant.

This showbiz showdown has been on the cards for months now with both contenders eager to clinch the crown of Cork’s greatest table-tennis champion. The trash-talking first began on this very blog when Dave Mac became aware of Paul’s ping-pong prowess as demonstrated during the recording of The Franks’ new album “Grenwich Meantime” in The Factory in Dublin. Having beaten the rest of the band senseless Paul began to destroy the confidence of “Once” director John Carney. 

Paul’s success just made Dave Mac hungrier for a faceoff and he raised the notion of a showdown on his show on Red FM. The competition gained more ground at The Franks’ acoustic show on Spike Island in September where Dave Mac was the MC. But the fateful day has now arrived.

On Friday 24th of November Dave Mac will play Paul in Curren’s restaurant at 8pm with the winner being awarded the honour of singing seminal Frank’s song After All at The Christmas Show on Dec 23rd in The Pavillion (tickets available here)
