Greg Franco’s connection to Powertool Records dates back to 2006, when Robert Scott (The Clean, The Bats) asked me if I would like to release Greg’s new album Southpawwest that he had just finished recording in Dunedin with David Kilgour, Tane Tokona, Tom Bell and Bob Scott.

Of course, I agreed and since then Greg has become a good friend and a staple of the Powertool catalogue, releasing seven further albums with both his bands Rough Church and Man’s Body. He is well known throughout New Zealand and has toured nationwide several times throughout the years since.

Emergency Breakthrough is his latest album, that was released late 2020 in the US and has gathered some impressive reviews and has had extensive airplay on the US college radio network. This New Zealand release boasts an additional seven exclusive bonus tracks.
