Biography

Gus and Frank first collaborated in 1997. Gus was a brooding writer playing background keyboards in an inner city Melbourne pizzeria. Frank waited on tables and serenaded unsuspecting customers…“Whoooooo ooooordered the laaaaasagneeee???!!!”
It was Frank unmistakable talent for captivating an audience that first caught Gus’ eye. A late night jam session lead to their first joint composition, ‘Confessions of a Rooftop Killer’, and the song-writing partnership was born.

Their passion for song writing became all consuming over the next few years and they practically lived in their makeshift home studio (named ‘The Zudio’) recording and re-recording their songs. The duo would occasionally go to various open mic nights and play under the simple name of Gus & Frank. Over the next year they entertained punters from the Village Bell in St. Kilda to the Barley Corn in Collingwood. It was at one of these open mic nights that the duo caught the attention of Dick Vines, a man with a very real talent for being able to “sell ice to the Eskimos”. He urged the guys to “ditch the drum machine and get a ‘real’ band together,” and soon became the band’s manager.
Since then the 5-piece band (still named Gus and Frank) have invaded the music scene with an extraordinary mix of pulsing bass riffs, catchy melodies and mischievous vocals. Frank takes his audience on a mesmerising journey of “twisted tales of love gone wrong, psychotic serial killers and deviate fairytale characters.”
