ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
There are bands, and then there are groups. And The Frogs, from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, just a short shot north of America's Midwest, are a fine group. These days being in a band means as much about perception as calculation, but there is little manipulation in this group because you see, The Frogs just are; point is they exist. They shouldn't really, because they are either too good for rock and roll, or too politically incorrect to matter. But they are one of the greatest rock groups to come out of the 20th century precisely because they are too good for rock and roll, and too smart to care about caring. Fine tunesmiths, they craft memorable hooks out quite readily before stomping on them because they dare to exist. Nothing is sacred, but the reverence is there for the unspeakable uncomfortability that is at the heart of merging electricity and feeling and commerce. They have neither won nor lost, they persist. Deal with them before they put you in their sights and deal with you by ignoring what you care about. Their agenda is clear; to love, but never in the way you love. Their love is strong, willful, and brutish. make a wish, and they can make it come true. - Billy Corgan

Lyrics :

I'VE GOT DRUGS (OUT OF THE MIST):
i've done drugs that would blow your mind
tonight real fine
tonight blow your mind
tonight out of my mind
tonight
tonight goin' out of my mind
tonight out of my mind
tonight blow you blind
tonight
i've got a suitcase full of drugs i can turn you on
would you like to come along?
(i'd like to come along)
i've got got drugs (where ya goin' man?)
i've got drugs (can i come wherever it is man?)
i've got drugs (i'll do your dope)
i've got blues (i'll be a dope man)
out of the mist, there's a pimp (out of the misty moon)
out of the mist, there's a hooker (coppin' tit)
out of the mist, there's a priest (from a man with a joint in his hand)
out of the mist (i kissed you beautiful)
out of the mist
how could i miss you with your drugs?
out of the mist
how could i miss you with your druggy ways? (fuck off)
out of the mist (out of the misty world i spun my dreams)
out of the mist
out of the mist (i pissed on Gordon Lightfoot twice)
i kissed your lovely drug-filled lips
you sleazy prostitute
where's your pimp friend?
(gimmie your fucking can of 'ludes turn 'em over whore)
where's your pimp friend and your priest?
as he stood there and lectured to me
on how i should live about (on his yeast infection)
(fucking priest with a yeast infection)
a drug problem that never existed
out of the mist
i kissed your drug-filled lips

I DON'T CARE IF U DISRESPECT ME (JUST SO YOU LOVE ME):
that was a good drum break
i feel like makin' love to all the men tonight
yeah yeah
it's a beautiful night
makin' love to every guy in sight
yeah yeah
it's a beautiful night
yeah a night
lotta cute guys in the club tonight (you're not joking)
lotta juicy asses hangin' out
what's your name? (like i told you before)
as i've said so many times before
i don't wanna play no games
don't wanna play no games with you tonight
but i tend to be a loner
so when you get up in the morning
i may not be there
i don't care if you disrespect me
just so you love me

HOT COCK ANNIE:
tropical love with the boys men
animals just can't cut it no more
tan everyone's tan everyone's good
lyin' on the beach they knew they would
feels so good in japan
being oiled down by furry young men
beautiful time i can't remember when i've been so hard
oh how ya doin' sailor? just got into port fine
do you know where i can get my rocks off? no i don't
do you know where i can buy a fresh pair of socks?

rammin' 'em up and down
this is a crazy faggy town we live in
ahhh it doesn't matter to me
i've changed my ways
people say i'm gay

THESE ARE THE FINEST QUEEN BOYS (I'VE EVER SEEN):
start by kissing my ass, i'll start by rubbing your balls
we'll have a jammy time together one and all
what will we do later on when the butter runs out?
you'll probably scream and shout,
"here comes the watermelon seed up my snoot snout"
and that's your asshole, your snoot snout
i'll put it through your eyesocket young man
i'm the first man you've had don't tell me about loving women
i don't want to know about it
this is our world men make sure of it
we'll do with each other what we want so
valvoline and vasoline and all the things in between
don't scrub yourself up i like you unclean
here comes jimmy jam joe, and there goes sally marie

oh who will finish first? no one knows, no one knows

BABY GREASER GEORGE:
i'm grateful
that the stroller came my way today
oh Mrs. Macrae driving the stroller

oh i got too close to the stroller
and put my thing down his mouth
and he parted his teeth
baby teeth
north and south brilliantly
like greaser George
baby greaser George
took off with my left ball
ah mother took off with the stroller too soon
and he swallowed it whole

ohh three months or so but boy could he ever suck
greaser George greaser George
the 3 month old baby greaser George

(THANK GOD I DIED IN) THE CAR CRASH:
i'm fine
i made it home ok
i'm glad you were concerned
my face didn't get too badly burned
in the car crash
but my thighs were lacerated heavily
the doctor took care of that though
thank god it wasn't a female nurse
thank god i died in the crash
my ghost came to haunt you in a flash
oh the ghost of the man
from the Candyland car crash
oh the sash is falling down upon his breast
oh he did his best to breathe
but he just couldn't
oh they sucked on his lips
'til his head turned blue
then his ears turned purple
and the sun turned green
and the light went out of the moon
car crash blues
arriving dead in the morgue in the nude
cold morning hours
oh i didn't wear my best clothes to my death
oh what will they think down at the parlor at best
what will they think
when they found i had 9 pairs of underwear on

GATHER 'ROUND FOR SAVIOR #2:
(backwards at beginning "Savior number three")
i'm thinking of a bird i love
and every time i think the bees gather around me
and children start to play at my feet
and the tangerine rabbits play too
and the woods are filled with children laughing
laughing amongst themselves as if it's some joke
known only to themselves
but they're laughing because they've gone
they've gone to their last church, mass
they've given up on church
because they've found something else
i'm here for the kids
oh kids disposing of bibles near my feet
oh parents gather in a rage
oh oh i took up this life
when i was half their age
ah kids singin' like they know
what they're singin' about
kids following my words
screaming, scream and shouting about
the way my eyes look
there's a certain gleam
that is unlike that of any parent
oh a gleam they know and love
the kids need not worry when they're with me
oh drop your bibles kids and gather 'round
ah listen to the sound
and listen to what you've always known
to what you've always been
to what you will always see
and gather 'round for savior #2

RICHARD DICK RICHARDS:
Richard oh Richard dick Richards
i love the shirts you wear
when you cum in your underwear
Richard Richard dick Richards
you've had your share of heartaches
not with the girls
oh they've thrown pearls at your feet
but you're better than the pearls
dressed in leather clad in heat
you make all the teats swell

Richard Richard dick Richards

MEN (COME ON MEN):

women clear out

they held Eden between the fingers of their hands

IT'S ONLY RIGHT and Natural Reviews

The Frogs 
"I Don't Care If U Disrespect Me (Just So You Love Me)"
http://www.marathonpacks.com

The cliche applied with grating consistency to the Velvet Underground's first record is that only a thousand were sold, but everyone who bought one went and formed a band. The Frogs' first record, 1989's It's Only Right and Natural, is subject to an updated version of that folktale---it would easily be considered one of the most controversial records in the annals of rock if only it were heard outside of a select, elite coterie in the early Nineties that managed to get a copy of the self-distributed cassette. This privileged group of music geeks, however, happened to have already formed bands---variously dubbed The Blake Babies, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Beck, and Smashing Pumpkins---and embraced the faux-controversy and avant-garde humor of brothers Jimmy and Dennis Flemion as an outsider curio that worked well as opening PA music and uber-hip name-drop material.

Natural is one of the most singularly memorable listening experiences I've ever had. It's clearly homo-satirical (with one of the all-time great shocking album covers), but without a drop of progressive ideal to be found. It thus finds tongue-in-cheek peers among Randy Newman's "Short People" and "Sail Away," Steely Dan's "Show-Biz Kids" and most anything by Sparks, but crosses over into the avant-garde by refusing to even remotely concern itself with traditional songcraft, and demonstrating pride in its sheer amateurishness. "The song titles themselves ("Someone's Pinning Me to the Ground", "Been A Month Since I Had A Man", "Hot Cock Annie") are purposeful button-pushers, attempting to provoke sanctimonious outrage while simultaneously disallowing it. The lyrics, sung in a faux-British-folk style (think about an even fey-er Donovan), are so bizarrely literal and matter-of-factly presented that they eerily border on diary entries---the kind of stuff that Found Magazine would put on a mix CD. The brilliance of the record is that its content very specifically addresses its listenership---those predetermined to expect a wallop of irony and so much camp that it hurts. Listen to "I Don't Care If U Disrespect Me (Just So You Love Me)", if only to finally discover both the origin of the sample for Beck's "Loser" and, well, the Hidden Cameras.

The Frogs 
It’s Only Right and Natural
[Positive; 1989]

Styles: folk, lo-fi

Others: nobody

What does it mean to record a “gay” album? When I first learned of The Frogs’ 1989 underground pseudo-classic, It’s Only Right and Natural, I consistently read about it being one of the few records that could be properly called “gay.” After giving the LP a listen, I no longer questioned why so many have described this music as gay or novel or lewd or shocking or homophobic or terrible. But I disagree with the applicability of most of these to a record that circumvents so many topical and lyrical conventions. If I had to force It’s Only Right and Natural into the prison of a single adjective, I’d call it refreshing. This is a record that compels attention and polarizes both actual and potential listeners so violently that I’m reminded of why I love art and why the explosion of punk in the late ’70s was so very important for recapturing the “fuck you” swagger in music, highlighted previously by Elvis’s mythical pelvis and Velvet songs about drugs, whores, and more drugs.
The moment the Flemion brothers start in with the opening words of “I’ve Got Drugs (Out of the Mist),” you’re apprised of the over-the-top nature of the recording. Though this first track is one of the few without a vulgar homosexual narrative, it’s perhaps equally absurd in its treatment of drug culture. But it’s these gay narratives that garner all the attention and provide a unifying theme running from beginning to end. With songs like “Homos,” “Dykes Are We,” and “These Are the Finest Queen Boys (I’ve Ever Seen),” The Frogs aren’t pulling any punches, and they hammer away at exaggerated expositions on gay culture with a tongue-and-cheek humor that accomplishes that rare feat of being at once ridiculous and poignant.
It’s Only Right and Natural also strikes at religion with “Gather ‘Round for Savior #2” and, not content with a song so mild as to just address the topic of drug use, the opener includes the line, “Fucking priest with a yeast infection.” Indeed. Then there’s “Baby Greaser George,” a cut tracing a gruesome sexual encounter that can be deduced from the title. It’s altogether awful and offensive and striking and taboo. And this seems to be the point here: regardless of what subjects the brothers Flemion deem worthy of their lo-fi folk aesthetic, none are handled conservatively, and all are sewn from the same cloth handled by 2 Live Crew, Geto Boys, and others who have composed their material with an eye to the censors. It’s probably not by coincidence that all these bands were at their best and most appalling at around the same time, in an era where explicit content in popular music resonated with ferocity in the media and amongst political elites. That doesn’t mean the music isn’t good. On the contrary, some of the early Geto Boys LPs border on classic status, and It’s Only Right and Natural is a brilliant middle finger wrapped in skeletal acoustics that nearly make you wish the band would have recorded a companion piece with a more traditional lyrical approach. It’s all just so raw and visceral and evocative and fun.
But you can’t really wish for anything other than what this record is, or else you’d be bargaining for something so very different as to void all meaningful comparison. The lyrics are such an immense part of this record and are so childishly clever and able to generate a what-the-fuck reaction that quickly merges with an appreciation for what The Frogs are doing here. And what they’re doing is whatever they feel like doing, and that’s something that should be cherished in a society that still insists on separating profanity from television. The tunes are pretty damn good, too.
