30 pounds[edit]

The statement about their cds costing 30 pounds is ludacris. I just bought all their stuff here in the states for 10 dollars US or less a cd. including their "early" stuff.

Your spelling is ludicrous.
The EP is very rare and that sells for £30-£50 on amazon and ebay
Also some of the CD singles have since sold out and are fetching higher prices. I've just seen a forum post where someone was complaining at 'having to pay' £22 for one of them, and was being lambasted by other users as many of them had paid more without murmur. However if the contributor with the 'Ludacris' spelling was actually telling the truth, I'd be interested to know the source selling all their material for under £5 per disc, as i'd like to put in a bulk order... 82.46.180.56 (talk) 02:43, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
Maybe somebody ripped the tracks from the CD, burned them to blank discs, and then distributed them illegally at a lower yet still profitable price? Tim 4:40 PM, April 27, 2008 (ECT) —Preceding comment was added at 20:40, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

Name[edit]

Different sources tell of different origins of the band's name. Some claim it derives from the 1985 movie The Goonies (the band confirmed that this was not the case live on air on BBC Radio 2's Jonathan Ross Show on Saturday 9 September 2006). Others tell of the band forming from a four-piece band who would play at weddings. However in a recent interview in The Sun newspaper, it would appear that the name is taken from bassist Barry, whose original surname is Fratelli, the other members of the band simply adopted that pseudonym.

So they're not related? If they were, it would be quite obvious where they got the name "The Fratellis" from. This should be clarified.


From the review of the November issue of Uncut they appear to be unrelated. It was said that Fratelli means "brother" in Italian and the real surname of Barry.

Barry's real name is actually Barry John Wallace, his mother's maiden name was Fratelli acording to his wikipedia article. Ian 15:04, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

Creeping Up The -*HTTP 404 Not Found*[edit]

Wasn't "Creeping Up The Backstairs" by The Fratellis ever released as an early single?

I heard it months ago on the radio, didn't they release it?

If so this should be put in the "Singles" section.

Is conformation the opposite of rebellation? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 194.176.201.28 (talk) 13:44, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

"Performances"[edit]

Surely this should be renamed, as it suggest this is all their performances ever! Well, to me anyway. Maybe something like "notable performances" or "Television Performances"? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 82.6.110.106 (talk) 13:35, 9 April 2007 (UTC).

The term "notable" is generally frowned upon, being a bit of a weasel word. It it's included, notability should be assumed, not stated. Murderbike 01:34, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

Band Origin[edit]

I am correct that the trio originated from Scotland and not Sweden, as the first line in the page says, right? I have changed it back to Scotland in the info box. Also, "brit dirt pop?" What is this? It should at the very least be capitalized properly, and more likely removed. --Asklepios 06:46, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

The album covers need to be removed[edit]

Not fair use. Kamryn · Talk 06:19, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

Lists[edit]

I am removing the Trivia and Television Appearances sections because they are just lists. You can find them in this older revision (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=The_Fratellis&oldid=169230953) if you which to incorporate them into the page. Charles 02:29, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

Improvement[edit]

I have added a considerable number of references and made a couple of other slight improvements. Tom Green (talk) 15:21, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Other bands with the same name?[edit]

Anyone know other Fratelli bands...? Just wondering as I've come across a supposed bootleg set of their material and it's plain that more than half of the tracks are nothing to do with the band mentioned in this article (the other half all being available on the open market, and so pointless), or even all made by the same group (i'm no committed fan, but "wrong" is "wrong"). Either it's someone being purposely obscure and incorrect, or there's others out there confusing (ambuigating?) the issue. 82.46.180.56 (talk) 02:47, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Chelsea Dagger[edit]

Part of Chelsea Dagger is played the Jan Breydel Stadion whenever Cercle Bruges scores a goal. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.164.253.179 (talk) 22:04, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

General Update[edit]

I recently gave this page a massive update, organising information and also added the information about the new album and single and added pages to both of those. Joshuar17 (talk) 17:45, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Pronunciation[edit]

This subject has come up on Yahoo! Answers so it may be worth a quick mention as to whether it's pronounced "fruh-TELL-eez" or "fruh-TELL-is". GBrady (talk) 21:20, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

Come up from people who've never heard an Italian word, apparently. -- AvatarMN (talk) 07:30, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:TheFratellis-CostelloMusic.jpg[edit]

In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.

Issues with the Hiatus Section[edit]

The hiatus section of the page is done poorly and out of context. The post made by Jon Fratelli on the band's website that started the rumors was originally posted on April 15th, not on the 25th as the article states. As it currently stands, the issue with the date makes it appear that this was the final word on the subject, which it was not. The quote the author provided was also shortened and taken out of context. The entire quote is as follows:

"We have no plans to work together right now. Sometimes things just work out that way. Mince, Baz and I are working on music but not with each other for a while. "

You'll notice "for a while" was completely ignored in the article, and they are perhaps the key to the entire message. The band, as has been stated multiple times, is on hiatus and will continue to be for some time. But that does not mean they have broken up entirely.

The ""I haven't split from anyone....!" quote referenced is indeed from April 22nd, and to date is the latest word on the matter. The context and chronological order of the article needs to be revised, and it would be appreciated if someone with the facilities could do so.

A link to all of Jon Fratelli's posts on the message board can be found at the following link, should they need to be incorporated into the article and put in proper footnotes for future reference. Thank you.
