Here’s a trailer for Conor Masterson’s recent film which shows The Frames during our 20th anniversary shows, which took place in the States, throughout Europe, and finished in Dublin.
Conor told IFTN: “Tongue-in-cheek, at the very beginning of the process, I said jokingly I’ll only make the film if we can make that bit in Star, Star where all the music drops out and (bassist) Joe Doyle plays ‘Hotel Lounge’ — which is the colour piece in the film. For years they’ve done that and it’s one of the things they do very well as a live band. It’s really organic. They’ll stop playing one song, do a bit of another song and then back into another one. The moment when they do that is an incredibly powerful piece of music.”
