The Fratellis

Glasgow's the Fratellis feature Jon Fratelli (vocals/guitar), Mince Fratelli (drums/vocals), and Barry Fratelli (bass). The witty indie rock trio, who formed in early 2005, maintain that their moniker is merely an homage to Barry's original surname, however other rumors suggest that the Fratellis borrowed it from the nemesis featured in Steven Spielberg film, The Goonies. Such trivia only added to the Fratellis growing appeal upon their performance debut in March 2005. Their limited-edition self-titled EP arrived a month later and sold out quickly thanks to "Creepin Up the Backstairs." The acoustic-driven tune, which is a little T. Rex, landed in regular rotation on Zane Lowe's Radio One program, and appearances on Later with Jools Holland and Top of the Pops followed in early summer. Second single "Henrietta" earned the Fratellis their first U.K. Top 20 hit. Third single "Chelsea Dagger" was burning up the U.K. Top 40 by August. In September 2006, the Fratellis have released their debut album "Costello Music". Recommended for all fans of The Strokes, The Libertines, etc.

I've been looking for that Pink Floyd song ever since I first watched The Squid and The Whale. Thank Z.

i fratellis non li conosco, ne ho intenzione di ascoltarli, però sicuramente hanno già vinto il premio per il peggior nome, di sempre.
