All together Frankie’s cast gather half a century of hard boiling Rock’n’roll experiences with bands like The Dead, The Monsigniores, The Babies, Gebrüder Ritalin and many more.

Their live show is furious, loud and sweaty, preformed with all of their dark gone hearts and their music is a exotic, raw and hypnotic rollercoaster ride to the bottom of the soul! It’s a safari to the rocky fields of the stoner’s desert, the sweet and delinquent spots of Rock’n’roll, the obscure and wild homelands of swampy rhythm and blues, the wide prairie of the dead men’s country and to the windy oceans of seedy blues – with a little break at the Surf-Inn.

Since 2015 they’ve been hunting festivals and clubs (like Reithalle Bern, Anyone Can Play Guitar Festival, Barbarie, Rümpeltum, Halt auf Verlangen, Coq d’Or, Kofmehl, Improvisorium, ISC and many more) with bands like The Peacocks, Blind Butcher, Howlong Wolf, Jolly And The Fly Trap, Demented Are Go, Treekillaz, Leech etc.

In the freezing winter of 2018 they released an ice cracking 7“ split single with the Baseball Bat Boogie Bastards, recorded by swinger and songfighter Zeno Tornado at his country shack.

The same year they went down south to record their debut album “From The Wild Frontier” at Outside Inside Studios in bella Italia with hard cooking Matt Bordin. The LP is released in December 2019.

And there’s even more to come: the one and only Mrs. Jungle Matsumi joined the band in spring 2019 and completed the crew with her evil eyed mojo.

– Dottore Safari (Bad Tantra Vocals, Fuzz Guitar, Devil’s Harp)
– Mr. Haymito (Thunder Bass, Back-Slack-Vocals)
– Monsigniore Dies (Caveman Drum)
– Jungle Matsumi (Exotica Organ)
