Using the borrowed ramblings of iconic frontmen, and performed with live analogue sound, Frontman is part-gig, part-performance for a standing audience who like it very, very loud.
Poised on the edge of catastrophe, Frontman is a raucous reproduction of the all the best gigs you never saw- a comeback gig for a star you never heard of. The ghost of Elvis/Dolly/Kurt/Iggy is channeled by a girl in sequins as she tries to play the Frontman, whilst a techie in rabbit ears refuses to watch the show. Frontman is defiant, brazen, tragicomic performance, complete with dry-ice, lip syncs and extreme noise.
Frontman toured the UK between 2010 and 2012.
