Having been in three de rigueur bands already (Dum Dum Girls, Vivian Girls and Crystal Stilts) Frankie has taken up the guitar, created a new five piece outfit, Frankie Rose & The Outs, let her songwriting skills blossom and delivered a belter of a debut album.

The tracks on Frankie's eponymous album are all short blasts of perfectly crafted power pop of the highest order. Not only that it is almost unique among contemporary releases in that it is not too heavily front loaded, gains momentum throughout and is a joy right up until the closing bars.
