Nobody knew that a quiet, cold, snowy night in Atlanta would be so life-changing for the city of Boston. The evening that Peace, Loving first met Hurricanes of Love was just an ordinary night on a band’s first cross-country tour. But the vibes were flowing, and within a year Frank moved in. His track for ARE YOU IN PARADISE? was recorded at the Whitehaus and features Jake the holy saw player.
FRANK will be performing live at SPECTACLE in three different bands: GANGSTA LOVE, HURRICANES OF LOVE, and KNIGHT HOWLS!!
I can no longer prolong the greatest moment of my life. I cannot afford to be afraid of the long silence. Of the after after. The people that populate my bedroom have become too real. My option is every door, every sun and mountain of night. Our options are in people. Honest voices are doors. I have stopped trying to control the narrative. To prescribe the reality of self. Not sleep until ending. Not sleep until climax. I am awake now. I am awake now. I will stop trying to wake up and I will walk out the door and I will see in a way that listens. This moment will be a kingdom of yes simply in the naming. It was always a choice. It was always a way of seeing. I am in Paradise.
Released on 12″ Vinyl LP with artwork by Lenora Symczak (front cover) and Morgan Shaker (back cover). 500 copies were pressed.
Frank Hurricane’s first voyage into recording hip-hop + R&B. Using hand-punched keyboard drums, a loop pedal, some magic contrapuntal gangsta piano, and the same soulful crooning Frank’s always been known for, Frank made an album that is up there with the best of the genre with the best messages the world has ever heard. Save your soul and listen to the holy truth.
Released digitally via bandcamp.com and a limited cassette run on Arkm Foam’s bootleg label ‘High Quality Dubs’ (edition of 20).
