New Franklin Panthers is the union of singer/guitarist Grant Fitch (formerly of Paw) and drummer Jason Jones. Beating their instruments into a forsaken sonic oblivion, the duo composes epic instrumental rock that's neither "shoegazey" nor "atmospheric." Instead, it hits you like a ten-ton-brick with brazen hard-rock guitar riffs and lock-tight drum fills. The onstage spectacle is a drunken marvel of a thing that can be both spontaneous and premeditated-a dynamic captured on the group's debut magnum opus "Hot Dogs Are Cool: In III Movements."
