  4. Hi There

    Hi

    We are Franklin Mint from Bristol in the UK and on June 1st we released our debut album "Scrage".

    We though as you are into some really unusual and inventive music you might like to check us our and perhaps let us know what you think or even add us to your site.

    Would be great to hear from you anyway. Biog and Links below.

    Dear World.



    Since inception two years ago Franklin Mint have engineered a new form of heavy alternative rock we like to call Prunk!



    It is a catalyst for the future of all modern rock music, falling between Melvins / Tool / Tomahawk / Killing Joke and erm Nick Cave... The songs all start out as individual random notes played using time signatures which are mathematically generated and implemented using semaphore.



    Bizarrely the resulting noise is something that you can sing along and dance too if your so inclined.



    The music is driven by a rhythm section ( Mark Toghill = Bass, Andrew Marshall = drums ) who had to play together for 20 years before they dared to get involved in such a project as Franklin Mint.



    The original drummer ( Al Ross) now plays guitars and keys, whilst sporting the bands best beard and produced / mixed the album.



    Vocals are courtesy of Nick Law ( not Cave or Cage) and his rich baritone bring tales of Pirates / Politics / Gothic Horror and trans-dimensional travel. He also does the artwork! You can see the Album art below in all it glory.



    You can listen to it here or on Spotify or anywhere else you normally use.

    Also below you will find a link to our first videos shark Vs Sheep and Narcissus as well as other useful links.

    Franklin Mint wrote and recorded the album all by themselves and will make it available to the universe on June 1st 2018. We are incredibly proud of it and hope you like it as well.



    Should you choose to enter our world - even for just a few moments your existence and understanding of music will change for ever.



    Lots of love.

    Nick , Al , Mark, Andrew.

    Franklin Mint

    We don’t make plates.



    "SCRAGE" = Bristolian word meaning removal of skin - Typical use - " I have scraged me knee " after falling from your bicycle.

  6. New Prog Releases is easily the single most important website, of the dozens, if not hundreds on the web, for progressive rock. Thank you for all your efforts!

    1. Thank you for your comment, but without other sites where people post news, write reviews or collect and organize information in databases, this blog would be much less informative and interesting.

  8. Hi there,

    My name is Jen and I am a composer from Atlanta. My project is called Spurge and we have a new album out. Georgia Local Spotlight calls it "wildly free, experimental spirit and unabashed ambition." and Prog Sphere compares it to the great Frank Zappa. We've been featured in Bass Guitar Magazine and Bass Musicians Magazine. Give it a listen:

  11. I think that there is one vital bit of info missing from your listing i.e. language used by artist. When I see country of origin I also like to know if they sing in English or their native tongue. They are not good to me at all if it's not English. I hate listening to something that I cannot understand.

    1. One can quite confidently guess the language from the tracklist. If band sings in its native language, the tracklist is usually also in that language.

  12. I LOVE your site!
    Will you have the information on the new Clepsydra when it becomes available (such as track list, etc.)?
    Thank you!

  22. Hello,

    Thanks a lot for your colossal work on your blog :D
    I saw you've mentioned M'Z‘s new album "L'autopsie du dogme" and thank you very much for that to, i'd like to add some informations and links :)

    It is a 55.55 minute long musical piece that goes through a number of aesthetics, from metal to jazz, from punk to EDM, from jungle to pop, from grunge to film music, from tonal to modal…
    This is a solo project but surrounded by my musical family also present on the recording.

    It was realized independently and completely self-produced.
    I'd like to give it some visibility, I thought you might be interested listening to it, you can find the links here:
    https://open.spotify.com/track/5oEJNWKKMbBAlt005neQwM?si=0g26gqdgTL2Xh1x6wtVCgA
    or here :
    https://matzizrecords.bandcamp.com/album/lautopsie-du-dogme

    This album strives to reflect on two axes in parallel:

    - The most obvious is the satire of the middle of the music industry in its entirety by trying not to spare anyone, at the dawn of its disappearance it seemed important to me to pay homage as to criticize what deserves it in this environment, see the beauty of these pioneers of cult movements and unfortunately well exploited by an industry which is artistic only the raw material which it exploits until its total extraction like any good industry in the wander of neoliberalism without counter- power.
    Tired of the vagaries and "weaknesses" of these artists that it attracts, the industry thinks it can reproduce the musical codes itself or even create new ones, (it has already succeeded in creating a whole bunch of labels) but it is clear that it is a very bad alchemy for those who love art but this black magic works perfectly for those who love gold and we know that the quality of the raw material has little of importance when you master the propaganda tools to dictate what the crowd should like.

    - It is also a way of creating a parallel of reflection between the death of God thanks to modern thinkers and which gradually wins minds in Western culture and what remains of these dogmas created in their honor to promote their control and domination over peoples.
    It would be crazy to think that it was enough to kill God to emancipate yourself from it, unfortunately beyond the figure of God, there are all the tentacular dogmas which subsist and which by their elegance, their fallacies, their manipulations or self-manipulations still know how to seduce and there is then the individual path that everyone can take so that finally God no longer occupies a single human heart.

    - There would also be a third axis and this one more personal, where each of these characters would be a part of my being, because it would obviously be too caricature and Manichean to think things in such a binary way, it seems to me that each of us can be an industry, a lot of dogma, a tyrant when we misuse the ingredients of which we are made.
    All are useful as long as you apply the right amount. I hope then that this album can act as a balance and that it will pay homage to both the machine and the dreamer and thereby prevent one of our voices from speaking louder than the others for a while.

    Enjoy your listening, I hope this sound can take you on a journey, at least it is made with a lot of passion and a real desire to put meaning and soul into it.

    2. I found both albums to be more of a radioplay type. It seems that on his earlier albums there was more music than narration. Now it looks like vice versa.

  24. This site is soooooo useful! Many thanks for all efforts in putting it together and keeping it updates. I'm on here several times a week checking out the new releases since my last visit. One thing would be nice though: would it be possible to change the colour scheme of the lists on the right hand side to make it easier to see which links have already been visited? Currently the green (unvisited) and the light grey (visited) are VERY similar and hard to distinguish from each other. Thanks again!
