We were all wondering what Francis was up to, hammering away at his little portable keyboard in the back of the Teenage Fanclub tour bus. “Maculate Conceptions” Francis’ instrumental solo album was recorded on GarageBand on his Mac during Teenage Fanclub’s European tour last year.
Francis drums with TFC and runs Shoeshine Records/Spit & Polish in Glasgow. He manages Camera Obscura, The Vaselines and Attic Lights.
He has released two previous solo albums: Nice Man “Sauchiehall & Hope ( A Pop Opera)” and Nice Man And The Bad Boys “The Art Of Hanging Out”.
His music has popped up in TV/film/ads in the UK, US and Asia. Francis likes Bob Dylan, David Sedaris and The Moth. And bad puns.
