It didn't happen overnight. The band themselves were unsure if they merited the project, and it took three months of writing, three months of scanning, and edit after edit to get the book in shape.
But in the end, it came together like some kind of chronicle, capturing the band everywhere from their Dublin rehearsal studios, to American deserts, to recording in Chicago, to playing on stage with Coldplay and Ash in a tiny bar in Atlanta, to photoshoots in New York and every possible locale inbetween, including cameos by other Ruckus favourites like Lisa Hannigan and Josh Ritter. The photos are the stars here, but in-between slip extras — a one act play by Pixies producer Steve Albini, tributes by the owners of the venues where The Frames would play some of their first Chicago gigs.

Most recently noted for his work with Wilco, Orlic's snapshots have appeared in numerous magazines, newspapers, websites and music packaging. Reflections from behind the glass: This book almost ended in December when I met the lads in New York City for what was to be a final photo shoot. I realised after seeing those images that this book needed to end in Chicago, The Frames' second home.
So I returned to Chicago and waited until they came to me. In March Glen played a few solo dates before joining the rest of the band for a short festival stint across the United States. For the first time in what seemed like ages, Glen performed to a small, rapt audience at Martyrs. Every note rang out in a flurry of passion, piercing the eerie silence of the pub where even the typical clanking of bottles at the bar had succumbed to the music.
Please, please, please never miss Glen Hansard and The Frames whenever they come to your town. Hello Family and Friends, I am excited to introduce a new book How would you rate the quality of this article? Zoran, fan and photographer, had unfettered access to capture the passion of the band, on tour and in studio. Zoran Orlic marked it as to-read Oct 27,
Struck by a strange sense of deja-vu, I reminisced about the years past and felt a twinge of nostalgia as Glen hauntingly serenaded us with 'Rise', which was recorded in on a dark Thanksgiving night with Albini. The entire band returned again in November to play at Park West with Josh Ritter opening, creating a new memory in the rich history of their performances.
Former Frames' drummer Dave Hingerty, my US tour co-pilot, now stood on stage with Josh's band, and all of a sudden these worlds came full circle in a sentimental experience. I staked my position near the front of the stage to collect some images. Behind me, an uninitiated fan politely inquired if I was going to stand there the whole night.
Trembling from the idea of seeing live this band that he stumbled upon in his favourite online magazine, he anxiously waited for The Frames to fulful his high expectations. I chuckled to myself remembering those innocent days, having graduated from the same school of heady fanaticism. Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia.
