Guest Playlist :: Frank Turner

Not since last month has Frank Turner’s name graced the pages of Moon & Back Music, but now he’s back with more musical recommendations.

It’s already been established that Mr. Turner isn’t a fan of typical ‘chart music’. In our first interview he actually talked about having a fight with Fearne Cotton and that Reggie bloke from the radio, after listening to their chart show. In this playlist Frank has highlighted some of his favorite artists and tracks and there’s a good mix of styles here. Have his recommendations let us down before? Thought not.

Loudon Wainwright IIIMotel Blues
Tim Barry – On & On
Fairport Convention – Matty Groves
Bruce Springsteen – Born To Run
The Weakerthans – Tournament Of Hearts
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – There She Goes My Beautiful World
Bob Dylan – North Country Girl
Billy Bragg – Levi Stubbs’ Tears
The Hold Steady – Yeah Sapphire
Frightened Rabbit – Heads Roll Off


Thanks a lot to Frank for putting this together. Please go and give him your hard earned cash by buying an album from iTunes or maybe Amazon. How about a T-shirt? Hoodie? Hot pants? Get your other Frank Turner merchandise right here. Oh yeah, he’s touring the UK in March and you can find tickets for the appropriate venues here.

    im surprised at no Van Zandt, but Frightened Rabbit, Loudon Wainwright and Billy Bragg certainly get me thumbs up.

  2. Yeah, I’m surprised there was no Van Zandt or Black Flag. Still, a very good list. Cheers for formatting it Paul, was in a bit of a rush when I put this up. I’ve kept up my end of the bargain too with the DVD post.
