Album Notes
Renowned cult musician Frenchy Burrito leads the Folk Pistols through this offbeat collection of folk rock, jazz and blues. This non-commercial band fights the rising tide of conformity, doing the independent thing with a straight forward, lo-fi delivery. Some highlights of Frenchy's career include recording for Fast Folk Musical Magazine, performing on the gone-but-not-forgotten Commander USA show, and a Salvation Army PSA for the homeless. He was a featured artist on the Nashville Network's Video Country hosted by Shelly Mangrum. Frenchy also became good friends with the legendary late great songwriter/poet Townes Van Zandt and hung out with him in Nashville which included staying at his secluded rustic cabin in Franklin, TN for a while. While there Townes showed Frenchy his morning glories that he planted growing up one side of the cabin and they spent time firing Townes's 22 rifle not to mention the long late night vodka soaked existential conversations about the ups and downs of the music business. Townes also took Frenchy to meet the legendary Jack Clement at his "Cowboy Arms Recording Spa". That was a highlite of the visit. They ended up going on a road trip together in the late 70's from which Frenchy is still trying to recover! Frenchy's band was featured in director Tony Buba's movie "No Pets" (London Film Festival) and four song's from Strange Paint CD wound up on the soundtrack for director Doug Miles lo-fi-lo-budget sci-fi flick "Don't Ask Don't Tell". A note of interest for you art collectors out there - Andy Warhol's brother, Paul Warhola, did the artwork for the cover of the Strange Paint CD.

Chuck Owston -- Rogues & Roots Magazine

"Strange and unique"
Strange, unique, touching, sad, angst-filled, nostalgic, Dylanesque...all Burrito

Tony Norman -- Pittsburgh Post Gazette

Folk Pistols Earn Respect
It's obvious from the superior level of production on "Strange Paint" that Frenchy Burrito & The Folk Pistols aren't just for cultists anymore. In the haunting, sef-penned "Homeless Hearts", Frenchy Burrito turns in what may be his most beautifully recorded performance yet. Two other Frenchy originals, "Shade of Shadyside" and "Blind Ambition", confirm his penchant for writing lyrically and melodically interesting songs. Frenchy is one of the most empathetic singers Pittsburgh has ever produced. With "Strange Paint", Frenchy Burrito & The Folk Pistols are guaranteed respect.

If Tom Waits and Bob Dylan were to throw a dance party they would play Strange Paint.
