Franklin - Something Blue, Automotive 7" 1993 Slug Records
Franklin is another band that came out of the 90's emo scene. I know emo is a dirty word these days, but this is nothing like the shit they pass off as emo today. These guys have a more DC Revolution Summer style sound.
I spent some time as a roadie for my brothers band in the 90's and we played probably 10 shows with Franklin over the years. We would travel hundreds of miles to some nowhere cow town following directions written on a Mc Donald’s napkin, and when we would turn into the VFW Hall or Firehouse or some kids living room...Franklin would usually be sitting outside having a smoke, and that was always a comfort because we knew that even if only 10 kids showed up at least we would get to see Franklin play again.
