One of the busiest human beings we know...Dan Frome afforded us a little time to talk. Get this...when we called him a while back to record, he said "I'll have to get back to you, the band I'm running sound for is about to do Letterman." Yeah. This is the same guy who recorded the Unteachers 7" and some tracks on "A Human Comedy". He now plays bass for Roomrunner and just recorded with J Robbins. (J keeps coming up...anybody know him? We should talk to him.) Dan started running sound for Future Islands about 1 & 1/2 years ago. This new gig has dragged him around the world, Coachella (funny Jared Leto story), David Letterman, just insane. Hear the stories of his super secret recording studio in Baltimore, the legend of that space which has degrees touching Shudder To Think, Ted Nicely, TV On The Radio and other early Dischord folks. Hear how Dan FOUND lost recording reels from bands such as Rodan, The Jesus Lizard and more. His path to today has been bananas.
Special thanks to our pal Bill O'Really for closing our show for us.
