Arty and a little twisted but of course great UK punk. Can’t decide which I like the best False Pretences which is the obvious hit with it’s full on force punk sound. Or Strangers On A Train with it’s pulsating and aggressive steady beat. I tend to spin Strangers… a lot more. I love sleeves like this who don’t reveal how the record sounds. It’s ugly and boring but coupled with how the record actually sounds it makes you feel like you’ve discovered something great that other people would miss cause of the design of it.
Frank Details have been comped on Everyones A Classic and the Chuck’s Messthetics comps:”Frank Details were were built around two guitarists -Richard Furzer and Andy Milner- who shared a distinct taste for the New York City sounds of Richard Hell, Television, and [Fred and] Patti Smith.“. After reading this I can cleary hear Hell and Television in there.

Thank you for this. Never heard of them before. Great record. False Pretenses being the best of the two. Sounds like Wire to me.
Don’t be so frank…how’s about some details.
Thanks for posting this, it’s the first harDCore record I bought when I was ten.
Excellent posting. Never heard of the band or the songs, much appreciated.
Last I looked, band member Furzer was married to a woman who’s just one of THE most adorable people on the planet. Like or loathe the Frank Details record (I like it) I defy anyone to not fall in love within 5 seconds. (Chris, you’d back me up on this, right?)
Nice one Richard!
Hey steve…what the fuck are you talking about???
Furzer means farter in german hahaha.
Don’t know about Chris Steve but i’d back you up on this :)

My dad drew that cover. I remember him giving me a copy when I was 9. Didn’t really appreciate it. Great to see it again after all these years. I may even understand the music now. Thanks
hey little pete

Hey Richard, Pete is in Nottingham. Got a letter from him the other day. He seems good. Getting older. As are we all. Listened to the 2 tracks. Really good. Shame I didn’t keep the record. Oh well. Nice to be able to listen to them again. Bit of Petes secret life.
