Adam Franklin – I saw a good review of Franklin (singer from Swervedriver, one of those big bands in the UK that don’t necessarily translate to the US… Stone Roses, Primal Scream, etc.) in Jack Rabid’s Big Takeover Magazine (essential reading for you uninitiated out there). The CD of Franklin was excellent as was this live set. He plays good straight rock music with a psyche-shoegaze vibe ever present. Tasty guitar interplay, good songs–nary a wrong note to be found in his set. And he plays a nice really beat up Fender. Check him/them out when they come to a town near you!
