Frankenstein Fan Memory
Meat being dropped into a piranha pool
From : Lemming
It was suggested a few years ago that Trevor Horn was on a list of potential producers for Editors' 4th album. Whether or not it was apocryphal, only the parties involved know. However, 8 years later they unveiled Frankenstein, a smooth, slick studio sound which saw them become a satellite orbiting the planet of Frankie Goes to Hollywood. Perversely, they recorded it with Jacknife Lee who produced what was probably their most guitar heavy album, An End Has a Start. Frankenstein's release was like putting on a show of where the main attraction is just meat being dropped into piranha pool. Some fans took on the role of disgruntled crowd members demanding their money back, others acted like the fish and devoured it. Presumptions were disproven, which is rarely a bad thing. The universal truth about music is it's equivocal, and everyone likes what they like. Editors have sidestepped their fans' expectations for about 15 years, all the while maintaining their support. Self- belief endures.
