"Sandman Review"

"Song-by-song they flit between sounds as riotous as The Pixies at their most drunk (and Spanish) and as harmonious as The Drifters at their most " Oooh-ah-ooh...six minutes later and I've got a new favourite Manchester band." - The Sandman

"Manchester Music Review"

"There is so much going on here it defies belief that they're in any way coherent - and yet they are, brilliantly so, existing in some parallel universe genre all of their own making" - Manchester Music

"MEN Review"

"The King is Dead. Long live Frazer King." - Manchester Evening News

"Further press articles"

The Manchester Evening News have run a full page feature and several smaller articles have tipped Frazer King as the next big band to appear from out of the city.

In a similar vein free magazine'Urban Life' for city dwellers/workers has run a large back page article on the band.

The student newspaper
'Sanctuary' is taking a keen interest in Frazer King's progress. The band was reviewed first of all when asked to play at University New Year event 'Panagaea' and subsequently at new fashionable music venue 'The Deaf Institute.'

Extreme hype surrounding the band has meant a newly secured management deal with Manchester's Crisis Management (Karima Francis) and indie/leap-frog label Concrete Recordings (Glastonbury Festival Late N Live). Although the first single hasn't even hit the studio Clint Boon has been sufficiently swept away to commission XFM London to record a session for John Kennedy. A similarly smitten Marc Riley also had the band in session at 6Music and they've twice been 'Introduced' by BBC Manchester's Sam Walker. Spot plays of highly desired demos have taken place on Manchesteronline and several community radio stations. Kerrang have just requested a demo for their unsigned show...



Its a gesture of touching proportion to name a band after a grandparent and this Mancunian 6 piece are so Christened on account of frontman Nathan McIlroy’s (admittedly 3rd rate) 1950’s stripper Grandad Mr Frazer King. Intelligently wry, they are set to feature on the John Cooper Clarke Project, a present day tribute to the 1970’s punk poet himself. On this they will appear alongside the likes of Chas Smash, John McClure and Maximo Park. Their limited edition first single is due summer/autumn on Manchester's Concrete Recordings for tastemaker and media consumption. With top fans including Clint Boon of Inspiral Carpets/XFM fame this band are a festival fruit cocktail of frenzied folk-psyche-skiffle and delicious barbershop harmonies.
