Biography

Luminous Frenzy return with a heavier sound, a different line-up and two powerful new songs: Momentary & Random Generator produced by Paul Sampson (Catatonia, The Primitives, David McAlmont).

Frank Frenzy founding member of 90's cult indie band The Playthings, formed Luminous Frenzy in 2001 with vocalist Louise Luminous and spent the next 4 years writing and recording Violence Ambience, released in 2006.

I got completely drawn into it, every word was so well placed, nothing overstated, nothing wasted. Benjamin Zephaniah

In 2007 they released the critically acclaimed single Three Cliffs Bay, with producer Adam Thomas:

Reminiscent of DJ Shadow's down-tempo work, or maybe Portishead on anti-depressants..... emotionally hard-hitting and delicately balanced. The Skinny

Mesmerisingly David Lynchian Tasty Fanzine

Frank then expanded Luminous Frenzy to an 8 piece including virtuoso drummer Steve Hands (ex The Only Ones) and a string section. The band performed a sell out show at The Purcell Room playing Violence Ambience live and featuring a multi-media exploration of Three Cliffs Bay.

In 2010 Luminous Frenzy are Louise Luminous (vocals), Frank Frenzy (vocals/guitar), Adam Thomas (lead guitar), Steve Hands (drums) and Andrew Macdonald (bass).

The band perform live on Resonance FM in January and at The Purple Turtle in Camden on 20 January 2011 before they announce UK tour dates for Spring / Summer.
