To support the publication of his new novel Andromeda Klein, which came out this week, musician and author Frank Portman, aka Dr. Frank, wrote a theme song for his oddly-named teenage occultist heroine and recorded it with his band, the Mr. T Experience. The song is available for download on Portman's web site. A second song based on the book, "Bethlehem," will be released on September 15th, at which point both tunes will become available for purchase on vinyl (including a limited edition on red vinyl, signed by Dr. Frank and Lane Smith, who created the cover art) and as downloads. The listing on Interpunk says the two songs "take his trademark quirky hook-laden punkish guitar-pop bubble-glam sound to new heights."
