Great new '83 USA Punk Reish 7" out now... FRANTIX My Dad's a Fuckin' Alcoholic
Out now on FMR comes this killer 40th YEAR ANNIVERSARY reissue of this classic USA KBD sludge punk classic from 1983. Denver Colorado DIY punk gunk at it's finest which has given messed up sonic joy to many across the last 4 decades. Originally released on Local Anesthetic Records back in the day, this Aussie only edition features the mega title cut plus TWO PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED TRACKS found on a Reel in 2021 (Rec at Hands On studio 26/3/83). Two cool as initial editions on YELLOW VINYL in Pro jacket sleeve with liner notes, lyrics,Sticker, photo and flyer repro's (shipping now) and PINK VINYL in Ltd SILK SCREEN SLEEVE by Too Far Gone w: slightly different inserts (Shipping late June) These are both Hand Numbered out of 160 copies There was a CD comp that myself and a pal put out in 2005 which was later reissued on LP/CD with extra tracks by Jello Biafra on Alternative Tentacles. That Aussie connection has lasted a few decades and the band are top notch peeps ! Davey the drummer of the FRANTIX, who I was putting this project together with (along with Bass champ Matt) passed away a few weeks back so this project is dedicated to him and all those around the band's sphere who are no longer with us. Members of the FRANTIX later wound up in the truly great Sub-Pop band THE FLUID, who remain one of my fave bands from the late 80's /early 90's USA Underground. Enjoy this red hot record and watch soon as we turn the focus back again to Oz and issue some choice ARCHIVAL and NEW 7"s from some more gnarly as bands. Cheers and thanks for being along for the ride, Scotti FMR June 2023
