The Mod Frames (Anyone After You Single)

Here's the second, (and I'm guessing the final) single from The Mod Frames. Both records are totally worth owning. Anyone after you is super catchy 60's inspired powerpop, with great harmonies, hooks and hand claps, (what more could you want). I posted their first single a few years back and honestly, I haven't learned a whole lot more about the band than I knew then. However, here's a few things of interest. They seem to have been a five piece from the NYC area and Billy Altman, (Vocals and Guitar) has quite a resume. He's a Grammy-nominated critic, whose work has appeared in: The New York Times, The New Yorker, Rolling Stone, Esquire, Spin and Sound & Vision. He founded a music mag called Punk, back in the 60's, was longtime editor of Creem Magazine and a former curator, for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Line Up -

Ben Rosenblatt - Vocals, Guitar, Piano and Organ
Billy Altman - Vocals and Guitar
Bruce Gordon - Bass and Backing Vocals
David Donen - Drums
