Frankie And The Heartstrings - Making British Indie Special Again (Since 2009)

By Jaimie Hodgson

Posted on 21 Nov 09


Ready to start feeling all gooey about homegrown grassroots indie? I know, it's been a while, right?

Frankie And The Heartstrings are the excellent Sunderland band who've been putting the lead back in the pencil of proper indie fans up and down this fair nation - a yellsome clatter here, a horsed Geordie swoon there.

Hey, Punka!

We were the first ones to do something on them back in March, so as to mark our loyalties, they gave us something back.

You know how all the idiots and fools 'blah' on about how these days the internet and downloading has devalued the concept of purchasing and actually owning music, and destroyed the collectability-factor in record buying? Well, lets not tell them nonces about this'un, ey?

Here's the latest in F&THS' series of limited releases on their own Popsex imprint. Cept yes it's a free download file- of various exclusive goodies specially constructed for NME readers. Think this is the coolest thing we've given away.
