A Telegram from Frank: Column in Gothic Magazine

There will be a regular column in Gothic Magazine written by one Frank Vollmann (Telegram Frank/Frank the Baptist/Dirty Weather Project) starting with this Autumn issue (# 69) which hit the streets yesterday.
There is a very welcoming introduction in the editorial section done by one Mr. Thomas Thyssen (Thanks Tommy T!).
Do yourself a favor and get your ass out there to pick up a copy (steal it if you have to) to supplement yourself with words of wisdom (yeah right) or enlighten your life with nonsensical banter (If you can’t dazzle ’em with brilliance baffle ’em with bullshit).
Cheers!

Vienna Weekend

The Vienna show at The Viper Room was a blast to play and we met and had fun with some very cool people. We got to see some of Vienna and that was good as well… except for the fact that everything closes too early and the folks at our Pension wouldn’t allow us to bring in guests. 🙂

Vienna is a beautiful city, love the architecture. Thanks Werner, thanks Vienna Folk.

If anyone has photos or video of the show please send either a link or some files our way.

Hammer of Thor

On Norwegian soil waiting for a train that will take me north on a 6-hour train ride that will display the beautiful landscape of Norway and bring me to the Hindrum Farm where Telegram Frank will be part of the entertainment for an invitation-only three-day party/wedding celebration. Will I survive three days with the Vikings? Will they survive three days of me? Nonetheless it will be good to see some of my lovely Viking friends again. Hail, hail to the Frodeo.

Cheers and see you soon.

Last night’s show

Thanks for coming out to the Grand Opening of Monster Mash, we had a blast playing our hearts out. Lots of laughs and such. Thanks to Ragnar and Crawfish for having us and thanks to Thomas Thyssen and the two aforementioned for playing my favorites and making the evening even more fun. Remind me to stay away from the 6% Astras, lethal.
