075 Fitzcarraldo by The Frames


Release year
Pete Briquette, Trevor Horn

Many people know Hansard from the movie Once and his other band The Swell Season, but Hansard cut his teeth with The Frames

Author & Special Guests

With the release of Glen Hansard's first solo record, we thought it was about time to revisit his pre-Swell Season, pre-Once band, The Frames, and their sophomore album from 1996, Fitzcarraldo. Many people know Hansard from the movie (and now Tony Award winning broadway musical) Once and his other band The Swell Season, but Hansard actually cut his teeth with his Dublin, Ireland outfit The Frames starting the early 1990s.

For Tim and Jason, this album goes back to the college radio days, and they've been singing it's praises ever since. Find out why this album is "criminally overlooked," and how that led to an end-of-show tangent about a new music-based reality show called Rock Cops coming to a channel near you very soon (or not).
