Underappreciated Band Alert: Teenage Frames

Teenage Frames are a garage rock / power pop / rock ‘n’ roll band that formed in Chicago, IL and now live in Los Angeles, CA.  Since forming in 1997 the band has released two full-length albums and four EPs.  Sadly these are not the easiest CDs to get a hold of (the folks at Guestroom Records have thus far been unable to get me any of their releases).  I lucked into a copy of the Kingsize Sessions EP at a Hastings and have a burned copy of More Songs, Less Music.  The band is selling all of their releases through CD Baby (see link below) so hopefully I’ll be able to get my hands on more of their stuff soon. 

For those who have never heard Teenage Frames, they have a sound that mixes The Jam with The Ramones with The Rolling Stones while at the same time sounding fresh and original.  This is great stuff for fans of the aforementioned bands and the likes of The Devil Dogs, Cheap Trick, and Material Issue. 

For more information on Teenage Frames check out their Official website, Facebook, MySpace, AllMusic, CD Baby, Yahoo Music, Rhapsody Music.
