The Frames

The Frames

The Frames are an Irish band based in Dublin. Founded in 1990 by Glen Hansard, the band has been influential in the Dublin rock music scene. The group has released six albums. In addition to Hansard, the band's current lineup includes original member Colm Mac Con Iomaire, Joe Doyle, Rob Bochnik and Graham Hopkins. The alternative pop group, whose lineup included guitarist Dave Odlum, vocalist Noreen O'Donnell, bassist John Carney, violinist Colm Mac Con Iomaire, and drummer Paul Brennan, made its debut at an Irish music festival in September 1990. The band issued a debut single, "The Dancer," in early 1992. With the help of producer Gil Norton, whose work with the Pixies proved to be a major sonic influence on the sessions, the Frames completed their debut album, Another Love Song. A scheduled U.S. tour was canceled when Mac Con Iomaire fell ill and Carney quit. Although bassist Graham Downey was quickly added, a shakeup in Island's roster left the band without a label. O'Donnell left the lineup in the midst of recording a second album, 1994's Fitzcarraldo. Bassist Joe Doyle soon replaced Downey, with Dave Hingerty assuming Brennan's drumming duties for the Frames' third album, 1999's lo-fi effort Dance the Devil.
