About the Artist

'Fitzcarraldo' is the second studio album by The Frames, released on ZTT Records in 1995. The Frames' line-up for 'Fitzcarraldo' features Glen Hansard on guitar and vocals, Colm MacCon Iomaire on violin, Graham Downey on bass guitar and keyboards, Dave Odlum on lead guitar, Paul Brennan on drums and Noreen O'Donnell on backing vocals. The title track's name comes from Werner Herzog's 1982 film Fitzcarraldo which frontman Hansard describes as being about a man 'pulling a ship over a mountain'. The album has been the go-to document for the long-running Dublin band's early sound. Actually, it's not all that different from the punchy, emotional rock sound that would define them for over a decade following. Led by the passionate and fearless Glen Hansard, The Frames always remain listenable while liberally pouring out their every embarrassing emotion; the deft violin, cello, and keys that flesh out the songs help prevent too much confessional melodrama. Hansard is a belter, but his earnest vulnerability on songs like 'Giving It All Away' draws an empathetic response anyway. 'Revelate' a statement of purpose as deeply felt as the best of U2's early singles, would justifiably come to be a live fan favorite.
