Adam Franklin on KEXP Live

"I now pronounce it with a D rather than a T." That's Adam Franklin's explanation of how his accent has changed since moving to Jersey City from London three years ago. Adam was at the Museum of Television and Radio on Monday afternoon for KEXP live in New York. He played four tunes for us acoustically (two Swervedriver tunes) and discussed what he's been doing since Swervedriver. He said that when he plays the powerful, feedback driven Swervedriver songs acoustically he has to change the key of each song because the songs are too hard to sing in their former keys. He also mentioned how nervous he was the first time he played solo - he was in Denmark and he and the other two solo performers (including Suni from the Ravonettes) tossed coins to see who would be the sacrificial lamb to lead off the night. He lost, but said he was thankful once he finished up first.

Adam is a true musician and you can see that in the way he plays and the songs he creates.

Well, this has nothing to do with your post, but the other day I heard some stuff from the Auteurs? Any thoughts on them?

Looks like I already posted this message, so you can just ignore it.
