Paul Lineman's Frank & Walters came out of Ireland but, despite the
silly stage antics and happy-go-lucky attitude
that earned them the headlines, have more in common with
Housemartins' domestic pop and
Wedding Present's eloquent romance.
Trains Boats And Planes (Polygram, 1992) collects the hits of the
first two years:
This Is Not A Song,
Fashion Crisis Hits New York,
Happy Busman. While the melodies are slower and indulgent, the
general approach to storytelling in rock music recalls the Kinks.

an artistic gamble. While Little Dolls, How Can I Exist and
Have You Ever have the wounds of a passion, but the winners are still

are the gems of the less ambitious and keyboard-driven
Beauty Becomes More Than Life (Setanta, 1999).
Continuing that trend,
Glass (Setanta, 2000) marks a complete departure in style from the
The synth-heavy and anthemic disco-music of Underground leads
6 Becomes 9, Isn't it Time, Talking About You
in the dance-pop territory of New Order, Heroes-era Bowie, and later U2.
Souvenirs (2006) collects rarities.
