Franco was born in the northern outskirts of Enfield but has since migrated inland. London has been part of his life now for longer than almost anything else: any band, any other city, any girl. When not being a dark, swarthy Sicilian stereotype, he can be found exploring London’s cultural underbelly especially fringe theatre, cabaret, comedy and burlesque plus the occasional restaurant.
