FRANTIC_FIVE_-_On_The_MoveIt is really worth-mentioning the fact that Greece's "Farfisa Kings" THE FRANTIC FIVE from Thessaloniki, keep going with a new album (their second studio one) after 13 years of their presence in the garagedom!!! They are, probably along with the fabulous Thanes from Scotland, one of the very few bands of the genre that keep the faith!

"On The Move" is the follow-up album after last year's live CD "A Go-Go At A Cave Near You" on INKA Records! Great compositions, well-structured instrumentation and awesome production in combination with a "lost-in-tyme" artwork make this effort by far their best! Their now-sound can be described as "retro neo-garage", based on the legacy of the best groups of the 60's punk Era and the most important revivalists of the 80's and 90's, since the majority of the groups of the genre today sound with an obvious distorted orientation. Thus, it is not only their Farfisa dominated sound that rules inhere but overall, an appreciation attitude towards the originators.

"The Brood" is the album's opening track, a great instrumental tune with references to the B-movies atmosphere of the mid-60's! Way-cool fuzz-punkers will follow such as "Why She'd Ever Leave", "I Live In Hell", "You Made Me Cry" and the self-titled "On The Move". A New England mood you can feel by listening to "How Can We Go On" whilst "Treat Me Kind" is truly a melodic number and "So Sad" reflects the band's folk punk influences. "Away From Your Lies" brings to mind the Wilson Pickett's classic "In The Midnight Hour" and "I Can't Wait Till Friday Comes" recalls The Pretty Things and The Tell-Tale Hearts! "I Got A Girl" is the swinging moment of the album which closes with an excellent cover of Kit & The Outlaws' "Don't Tread On Me".

Listen to THE FRANTIC FIVE's brand-new stunning album and you will surely wait to their next step!!!
