"Fuck Frankie has existed as a band since the summer of 2010 when it was spawned out of the strange and disturbing match of Jsses and Lisa. Gustav was also a part of the band right from the beginning, even if it was without him knowing it. Mathilda, maybe better known as Elvira Bira joined the band that fall after the trio hadn?t tried out any of the people that applied for the job. Mathilda was just the misfit for the part. And last but not least, after a handfull of guitarists has come and gone, Orri took the place as lead guitarist, guess forth time?s the charm.

Being a part of this meltingpot of rocker, punk, metal, whatever degenerates is hard to describe, sometimes you laugh, sometimes you cry, and sometimes it?s some kind of undefinable thing in between. However, it?s an interesting and dynamic part of the live for these weirdoes to which the product of this perfectly chaotic collision, the music, testifies. " - From Fuck Frankies Biography

On the demo you have the song <Cunt> ( wich also has a kickass musicvideo on youtube , check it out! )

what inspired you to write/make that song/video?

Mathilda: -Why are people producing so many weapons in the world? To kill People. That's fucked up.

Lisa: -we really wanted this song to get around so we made a video with what we had (no money and a cheap home video camera) But it turned out pretty cool considering!

On your full lenght album <Hate me> you have a more heavier sound than on your demo , is this something that will continue on to your next record?

Lisa: The upcoming album is going to have a little bit of both. There`s some really heavy and aggressive songs and some more melodic ones as well.

Fuck Frankie has been playing concerts reguraly , but did/do you ever expirience difficulties getting booked due to musical genreor on the steriotypes of how punk is portraited in the media?

Lisa: Offcourse, thats why we play underground pubs and get payed in beer.
