The Frames – ‘Red Chord’ (Live)

There are moments in our own personal musical adventures that stand out. Benchmarks if you will. Being in this tent somewhere in a field in Ireland in 2001 was one such benchmark for The Quilted Generation. Never before had we fully realised how much emotion can be captured in a passionate live performance. And to be honest, we haven’t really since. The energy in that tent was nearly captured by this video. So near. Yet, live music is so hard to capture. It’s all in the moment.

The Frames have stayed with us every since as they continue to churn out a seductively humble living in the unrelenting machine that is the music industry. Take a leaf out of Glen’s book today and be sincere. It’s endearing.
