Once Ad Frank read the words, he knew he had the basis for a song, if not an entire new album. "For whatever reason - exhibitionism or whatever -
my ex-girlfriend gave me permission to read her diary," explains Ad. "As soon as I saw that she had written in there that I was the 'World's Best
Ex- Boyfriend' the song pretty much took care of itself." The track is pure, manic heartbreak and the perfect title for the follow-up to 2003's
In Girl Trouble. Now Ad is back with his band, The Fast Easy Women, for a tight trip through songs that evoke both asleep-at-the-bar loneliness
and cutting wit. Featuring members of Tracy Bonham, Francine, and Garvy J, the band's glam/new-wave/cabaret epoxy expertly binds together all of
Ad's varying loves and influences, resulting in a punchy, moving, and occasionally danceable album. Ad will celebrate his new release with a series
of shows throughout the U.S. in March and April of 2005, so that he may continue sending women running to the bathroom in tears.
