Fram are based mainly in Glasgow, Scotland, and have existed in one form or another for many years. Fram are not really part of any scene, more idiot savants, being completely part-time with no real ambitions to be famous.
There is a Fram manifesto of sorts:
! We believe in the redemptive power of great music, and its inherent heart and soul. Great music can have an emotional impact, and a physical one. If we could find one chord change or lyric that operated at that level we’d be delighted. That search is the greatest part of being in a band.
! Music does matter to us. Nothing else surrounding music affects us more.
! The search for a song that will break hearts and mend them is worth it.
! Romance and beauty may not be as fashionable as cynicism, but there’s nothing wrong with love.
! We believe we can make music more beautiful than music we’re making now, which is more beautiful than music we made a few years ago. And so on. Progress, however glacial.
! Enjoy the songs; it’s only rock ‘n’ roll and we like it.
