About: And Her Name Was Frank, very interesting band from Notodden/Akkerhaugen.

"…And Her Name Was Frank is a band from Notodden/Akkerhaugen. The band consists of Fredrick Kaasa (guitar, vocal), Robin Kolbjørnsrud (guitar), Øyvind “Furte” Eilevstjønn (bass) and Håvard Floten (drums, synth). They gotten to know each other at some parties at an abandoned train station in Akkerhaugen, known as Stasjis or Stasjonen. They started jamming in 08/09, and got their first concerts shortly after. The name “…And Her Name Was Frank” is from a party where one of the band members (which one is not yet revealed) almost hooked up with a shemale. In 2009 their carreer took a huge turn after first playing at Notodden Blues Festival and later winning Rockekampen in Telemark, Norway. This game then gigs warming up for bands like John Olav Nilsen og Gjengen and Dum Dum Boys. ‘Frank call their music pop n’roll and are influenced by classic rock bands like Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix Experience and popular music like John Mayer. They are currently recording their first demo/EP, which is to be released before summer 2011. One of the songs featuring is “20th Century Dad”

1). What is the most exotic/extraordinary place you have ever performed at?
A friend of ours threw a festival far in the woods in the mountains of rural Norway, where we played inside a dried-out waterfall. That was pretty wicked, I must say.

2). When you are 70 – how do you see your life?
As the perfect couple of rock n' roll grandfathers planning our great comeback!

3). If you could talk to any of the rock-stars, dead or alive, whom would you talk to and what would you ask?
Definitely Jimi (Hendrix), and asked him if he wanted to share some herbs and have a couple of shots.

4). What countries and cities would you like to visit the most during the tour?
UK; London, Brighton, Birmingham, The US in general; New York, Chicago, Philly, LA. And the rest of the world, of course, needs to hear 'Frank' too.

5). Which famous band/artist you would be glad to share the stage with?
There are SO many amazing bands, so it's a bit hard to choose only one, so it would have to be either MGMT, Deep Purple, John Mayer, Foo Fighters or perhaps another Led Zeppelin reunion.
