Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls at Zappa



Frank Turner is an English folk/punk singer-songwriter who has been active as a musician since 2001, he is also the frontman of Möngöl Hörde. Frank Turner has an innovative way of blending the genres of folk, punk

and rock with his intelligent lyrics to create quietly anthemic music.

Apart from his exceptional writing talent, Frank Turner and his band The Sleeping Souls, are most known for delivering amazing live performances. They manage to turn the crowd into a community that screams along every word.

After the stripped-down, live-sounding Positive Songs…, Turner wanted to try a new approach for the record. Originally, he contacted Jenkins and Block at their Niles City Sound studio in Fort Worth, Texas with the idea of recording a white soul album in the vein of Dexys Midnight Runners. He found they were equally enthusiastic when he changed his mind and decided he wanted to record a more rock-led album with tints of electronic-pop. “I have an obscure corner of my music taste where I’m into glitch electronic music and Warp Records,” says Turner. “It’s not an electronic record but I got into arpeggiator synths.” Positive Songs… was cut in nine, intense days whereas Be More Kind was made over a period of seven months, giving Turner the opportunity to turn songs on their head, try different versions and shake up the dynamics within his band.
