Frank & Beans

Support will come from Milo Dunn-Clarke (Frank) and Tim Burns (Beans) AKA Frank & Beans who are originally from Northern Ireland, where they practiced and practiced from the age of 11 to 18, then when they were old enough, moved here to Brighton. Sadly, they have now moved to London, but hopefully the record companies based there will take notice.

Their thunder-punk guitar and drumming style comes with funk-infused sounds and Milo is most definitely a fan of his guitar multi-effect floor processor, which gives his guitar a distinctive meaty distorted sound. Both boys can certainly play very well, you wouldn’t expect anything less from the BIMM alumni.

Frank & Beans are on Bandcamp. Check out their work HERE.
