On October 8th 2021, rockers Three Fourths Francis released their debut album Electric Telegraph. The band was formed by a bunch of guys who have been jamming together since they went to St. Francis of Assisi grade school in south St. Louis County. Although the line-up has undergone several changes and rotations over the years, at any given time 75% of the band has been composed of St. Francis of Assisi alumni, hence the name Three Fourths Francis. Their sound is reminiscent of rockers such as Cheap Trick, The Rolling Stones, and Enuff Z` Nuff.
The band comments:
«In many ways this album has been decades in the making and is the product of five friends who grew up together with a shared heritage of rock-n-roll. It serves as a tribute to a bygone era of good times and great tunes. We attempted to blend our many influences into a new sound which captures their vibe. Throughout the years there have been many forces trying to keep the children of the 80s from rocking, yet here we stand, guitars in hand, proof that Tipper failed! ».
