Living in Manchester in 2016, Franco Bandini struggles to rise above his destitute, proletarian circumstances through an intense and passionate pursuit of self-education, hoping to achieve a place among the musical elite. His principle motivation is his love of music. Because Bandini is a rough, uneducated musician from a working-class background and the music industry belongs to the bourgeoise, a union between them would be impossible unless he reaches their level of wealth and refinement.
This will not happen.
The Parish Church Fire represents this musicians frustration with the above and the non-record-buying public.
Recorded in June 2016 by Franco Bandini & Joe Roberts, Locamente provides the impetus for the reborn Parish Church Fire.
Special thanks to Bob Osborne & Ian Moss of German Shepherd Records for their patience and for providing a platform. Further thanks to Stephen Doyle of Salford City Radio for his continuous airplay, enthusiasm and cheer-leading. Finally, thank you to my darling muse, Rosalyn for being everything a woman should be.
