IN LOVE WITH A GHOST

-GLAMBILLY, brainchild of Hans Frank Hans Frank was born and raised in rural Appalachia, in the tri-state region of southeastern, Ohio, Western West Virginia, and Eastern Kentucky. Always a prolific songwriter, the combination of rough and refined contributes to the dissonance in Hans’ music. His lyrics experiment on the continuum of kitschy, desperation, and painful introspection while his songwriting is bittersweet and full of nuance. GLAMBILLY’s present lineup is Hans Frank (vocals; bass; keyboards), Tony Gloria (drums; percussion), and Buck Fever on guitar. "Like the fifth horseman of the apocalypse, San Antonio's Hans Frank guides Glambilly on a breakneck course designed as much by the Cramps as Sun Records. On booming bass and vox fueled by whiskey muscle, Cavalier Behavior stakes Glambilly's claim to twisted turf ("Creepin'," "The Sloppy") while hammering at the unforgiving rock of love ("Rock and Roll Catastrophe"). Margaret Moser - AUSTIN CHRONICLE (July 23, 2010) "Think Johnny Cash hopped up on pills and simultaneously carjacking both ZZ TOP and WHITE ZOMBIE. Richard Skanse - TEXAS MUSIC "[Hans] Frank does not blend into a crowd. A tall man with a shock of spiky hair that would make a haystack nervous. . . that Glambilly thing is no joke . . . goth, glam and country coexist, albeit uneasily, when Glambilly turns it loose, but uneasiness often makes for good rock 'n' roll. "Jim Beal Jr. - San Antonio Express News "Great! A little Glitter, a little John Lee Hooker, some Blacks and Handsome Family—but it's all . . . unique and memorable shit."Joe Bonomo - Jerry Lee Lewis: Lost and Found
