Reviews & Ratings
Glasgow buzz band The Fratellis rock The Wiltern. This show is in support of their new album Here We Stand. Opening acts are The Airborne Toxic Event and Electric Touch.
A brashly melodic indie rock outfit from Glasgow, The Fratellis feature vocalist/guitarist Jon Fratelli, drummer Mince Fratelli and bassist Barry Fratelli. The witty trio played its first show in early 2005, maintaining that the band's moniker was merely an homage to Barry's original surname (however, other rumors suggest that the Fratellis borrowed it from the nemesis family featured in Steven Spielberg's film The Goonies). Such trivia only added to The Fratellis' growing appeal upon their performance debut, and the band's limited-edition self-titled EP arrived in April 2006.
The band�s full length debut, Costello Music, followed in September and features the singles "Chelsea Dagger" and "Flathead", the latter of which was chosen for an iPod commercial. Rolling Stone stated "Costello is like a madcap Glasgow pub crawl: It makes you elated in the moment and sorry when it's over." Their new album Here We Stand was released in June of 2008 and includes the new single "Mistress Mabel."
