Take a look at an interview of Frank Turner by Geoff Rickly of Thursday, screamo band, on Shockhound. The interview covers everything from the central themes in his songs to some of his favorite records.
When asked about his solo success in the U.S. compared to his band, Million Dead, vitually being unheard of here, Turner responds:
I think it has a lot to do with the fact that we never toured over in the US with Million Dead, whereas I’ve been over there myself a whole bunch of times now. I think it also has something to do with the fact that MD were very much influenced by a lot of American bands, and it’s not so easy to sell you guys back what you already shipped over to us, if you see what I mean. I think right now a lot of people in the States seem to latch onto the Englishness of what I’m doing. Basically, I’m skirting around the fact that it’s much easier to get American girls with a British accent, haha.
