Album Notes
Frank Bango has been quietly going about his business for the last 15 years, making some of the best and most original pop music that almost no one has ever heard. But while Bango has consistently remained further under the radar then just about any other artist of his caliber, he’s never let anonymity go to his head.

“Bango… has melody and wordplay worthy of Elvis Costello -– and a romantic whimsy Costello couldn’t touch.”

“one of the best albums of this decade in any genre….The Sweet Songs of Decay is flat-out brilliant. ”
INK 19

Comparisons are often drawn between his intelligent, timeless pop songs and those written by Ray Davies, Elvis Costello and Andy Partridge (although Bango and longtime songwriting partner Richy Vesecky cite the golden age of The Brill Building as their primary influence).

To understand, you need only listen to one of the five albums that Bango has released on his own label The Sincere Recording Company, And there’s no better place to start than his latest triumph “Touchy/Feely”. An addictive, hook laden album with irresistible melodies and intelligent, yet heartfelt lyrics. A record created to showcase Bango & Vesecky’s roots in traditional pop craftsmanship.

“Bango & Vesecky’s accessible classic sounding pop songs sound refreshingly familiar, almost as if they came out of another, less frantic and noisy era.”
Steve Leggett -All Music Guide

The Album was recorded and produced by Bryce Goggin (Pavement, The Lemonheads, Joan as Policewoman, Antony and the Johnsons) after Bango hand picked some of his favorite players.

Steve Goulding on drums (Graham Parker and the Rumor, The Mekons, The Cure, Elvis Costello)

Jeremy Chatzky on Bass (Ronnie Spector, Steve Earl)

Scott Metzger: on guitar(Wolf, The Stanton Moore Trio, Marco Benevento)

Bango and Vesecky imagine Touchy/Feely being played in its entirety with the hope that it will join the ranks of some of their favorite long players:

All Mod Cons
Odesey And Oracle
Armed Forces
Something Anything
Hunky Dory
