To many naïve music listeners, punk music is just a few chords repeated over and over again in a mind-numbingly fast fashion. According to the original punk “doctrine” solos don’t belong in punk either. Not to mention the fashion must-haves: the Mohawk and leather jacket (don’t forget your Docs!). To the non-initiated (sorry for the surprise!) I present: the Frankl Project. Oh, did I mention that they actually play their instruments well? Or that they jam during their sets? Or that they play some ska? I find it intriguing and trailblazing. Punk tends to invite less talented musicians (ask most of the people in bands in Cinncinati why they started to play punk instead of rock music) and the “formula” spawns songs that leave little room for experimentation. Many people would laugh if they were told a punk EP (nonetheless) contained a blues solo (check out "Tail End of a Movement") and would heckle the Frankls with cries of “HIPPIES!” when they read the band's socially conscious lyrics.
