Patrick Wilson

Franklin Mint is the code name for Patrick Wilson's experimental musical meanderings.


Franklin Mint are all-instrumental, mostly electronic recordings. There have been several recordings under the moniker that Pat has released online.

Franklin Mint is also the message board screen name Wilson has used at times.

Pat recorded a 'Franklin Mint' version of "Keep Fishin'", which was released in 2002 as a B-side to the US retail single for that song.

Released music

Two batches of songs produced under the Franklin Mint moniker were released via thespecialgoodness.com around 2001.[1]

"The First Batch"

"The Second Batch"

Wilson has also been credited under the pseudonym on official releases where he contributed production work. The Special Goodness album At Some Point, Birds And Flowers Became Interesting (2001) has credits for both Franklin Mint and Wilson himself. In 2002, Wilson's instrumental remix of the Weezer song "Keep Fishin'" was officially released as a B-side in the US, on which he is credited under the moniker. Wilson's co-production and guitar work on the Karlophone song "If You Listen", released as a B-side to "Desire" in 2004, is also credited to Franklin Mint.
