Power of Pop Review The Scallions

November 4th, 2006

THE SCALLIONS Agony Through Ceremony (Slam Jamz) Brothers Mike and Shawn Franklin make up the Scallions. Word is, the Franklin brothers have been recording for more than 16 years. It shows too on this accomplished collection, as the production work is first class. The album is a little schizophrenic though seeing as it veers from the opening sixties folk-rock to synth pop to ambient-techno before two really fine classic Britpop-rock numbers buoys you and then, the dirge-like “Final Frame” drops you off at the deep end. What a ride for pop lovers everywhere. Climb onboard!
