Vincent Frank was born in Opelousas, Louisiana on May 27, 1920. He has lived in Houston’s Third Ward since 1943 where he has worked as a wallpaper hanger and as a housepainter. But Frank is perhaps best known for his accordian playing. Billing himself as “Blues Boy Vincent,” he could occasionally be found in various wards performing as a one-man band. Although Frank has retired from nightclub performing, he loves to play for visitors and friends when requested.

Largely forgotten power pop, here’s a bit of fan commentary:
His lyrics diverted them from the dark “new wave” , the sound did not fit ( in California , The Knack My Sharona with her , suffered the same fate ) , which was true at the time. Unfortunately a decade ahead . Because after Nirvana won with his ” grunge ” and Kurt Cobain became the world’s sexiest man.

These guys got a hard promotional push, spearheaded by an awesome television special, Rock and Roll Dreams, which aired Feb 21, 1982 on NBC. I guess it didn’t catch on, except in my weirdo household, where it charted #1 for several weeks.
