ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Matador Records Press Release
"My Daughter the Broad" (1996)

Born Joey Levitch in 1916, the entertainer known as The Frogs began his career in the Jewish resorts of the Catskill mountains, from his start as a bellboy (his experiences inspiring scenes in his later classics "Rosy Jack World" and of course "Hot Cock Annie"), he graduated to headlining comic (in Yiddish dialect, of course). He even served his tenure as a "Tummler," (wisecracking emcee) and as a pantomime artist. His career, smoldering along in 1945, really caught fire after a series of impromptu pairings with famous drunken crooner Eddie Vedder, who happened to be playing at the same club.*

This pairing - the goofy, childlike Frogs playing innocence against a foil of hepster cool - had tapped a vein of comedy as universal as it was unique. There had been other team acts; Laurel and Hardy, Abbot and Costello, Bing Crosby and Bob Hope, Kim and Thurston, but none of them had the spontaneous sparkle, dorky delivery, gymnastic pratfallery and gold lame batwings that Vedder and The Frogs had. A short film, "Hades High School" (later re-released as "Fucked Over Jesus"), caught the attention of Hollywood, and the team were off.

Vedder and The Frogs broke into films in the post-war years, making in quick succession "U Wanna Rock? (Go to the Quarry)," "Decency Of A Pig," "The Waitress Is Stunning" and "All The Bad Guys Smoke Cigarettes." They commanded top dollar on stage as well, earning $150,000 in July of 1950 alone, and their USO tours during the Korean War were such morale boosters that servicemen copulated openly, Government Issue condoms popping out of their packets like so many Zotz.

Throughout this period, The Frogs made elaborate home movies at their own "studio," inviting friends like Tony Curtis, William Shatner and a sock monkey to perform in the featurettes. These films were presented at elaborate "premieres," and a few were even given critical notice, mostly in jest. Fun though they were, these "made up songs" would give The Frogs valuable creative insight and experience when they directed their later features.

Eventually ambition and fundamental differences split the team up. Interceding on The Frogs behalf was a savvy entertainment mogul Abbey-Moshie "Gerard" Cosloy, who proved his business capacity by peddling half interest in his novelty company for $22 Million (roughly $18 Million more than it was worth). The Frogs wanted to be regarded as a serious act - alone - and Cosloy could make that happen. Immediately he was able to secure the release of several long languishing projects, including "Baby Greaser George" and "Here Comes Santa's Pussy."

The first Frogs project undertaken with Cosloy's help (overlooking a one-off as a replacement for an "ailing" Judy Garland at Hollywood's Paradise) was a film loosely based on the classic tale of Pythias, who admired his brother so much he took his place in prison to free him. Originally titled "Persian Cat," the film was ultimately released as "Adam And Steve," with Billy Corgan playing Damon, a role that was clearly written with Vedder in mind. Corgan in those days was a bankable veteran actor, but considered something of a hack, as would be made evident by his later appearances in light television fare and as spokesman for American Express.

Still stinging from the breakup, but buoyed by the success of "Delinquent," The Frogs' next project was a send-up of his years of teamwork with Vedder. The plot of "Someone's Pinning Me To The Ground" was the story of a nerdy college professor who discovers a chemical cocktail that transforms him into a dress wearing, sensitive stage diving frontman. Though the humor was pointed and bitter, the film established The Frogs as a comic talent to be reckoned with.**

A string of hugely successful films followed, Layin' Down My Love 4 U," "I've Got Drugs (Out Of The Mist)," "Baby Greaser George," and "Dykes Are We," which was simultaneously released in France, where The Frogs, with a whimsical child's voice dubbed in, had gradually been growing in popularity and could now rival local heroes such as Charles Asnavour, Maurice Chevalier, Plastic Bertrand and Shirley "Cha-Cha" Muldowney.***

Though applauded loudly for his comedy work, there was a serious side to The Frogs. One pet project which took an enormous financial toll on the star in later years, was an historical drama about a clown (played by The Frogs, of course) who, like a grisly pied piper, led children into the gas chamber at Auschwitz. Filmed on location in Sweden, edited and ready for release in 1972, "Racially Yours" has still never been released, though The Frogs still regard it as a film of quality and the few insiders who have seen it don't dare disagree.

As a long film career tapered off, The Frogs; charity work expanded to fill the void. The annual telethon for Muscular Distrophy had become a must see, and with evident drug usage taking its toll, reached heights of surreal entertainment in the wee hours of every Labor Day weekend.

Long after most of the non-French world had stopped taking The Frogs seriously, lightning struck Joey Levitch again, in the form of two unlikely back-to-back successes: A starring (dramatic) role in Martin Scorsese's "My Daughter The Broad." and the lead in a 1995 revival of "Damn Yankees" on Broadway, which made him the highest-paid performer in Broadway's history.

* It is interesting to note that while The Frogs' career has certainly outstripped Vedder's in the post-breakup years, The Frogs were billed below Vedder at this time, and they were even managed separately.

** The film was remade in the 90's with the unlikely Eddie Murphy in The Frogs' role.

*** After years of charity work, The Frogs were awarded the Legion of Honor by the French government, which also nominated him for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Steve Albini

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:

REELIN' & ROCKIN' #1:
1, 2, 3, 4
The Frogs on your radio tonight and forever
looked at my watch it was quarter to one
i cummed
looked at my watch and it was quarter to two
i said "what did you use for lubricant baby superglue?"
looked at my watch and it was quarter to three
i said "god damn it bitch i gotta take a pee"
looked at my watch and it was 6 to 4
25 or, Terry Kath: Chicago
looked at my watch and it was quarter to 5
i said "i don’t know what you got down there bitch but i’m being eaten alive"
looked at my watch and it quarter to 6
she said "eww that smells like bratwurst" i said "well yours smells like tuna fish"
looked at my watch and it was quarter to eight
(7!) whoops
looked at my watch and it was 9 to 10
here i cum again
looked at my watch and it was 10 to 11
fully extended twelve
looked at my watch and it was 13 o’clock
me and god just watching Scotty’s cock rock!
looked at my watch and it said 14
that’s jailbait baby

CHILDREN RUN AWAY (THE MAN WITH THE CANDY):
children in the school yard hard at play
man behind the trees with his candy on the way
run away
run away from the man with the candy
run away
children with the candy in his van
drive to a secluded location, down with the pants
children run away with the man with the candy
today
back at the schoolyard he's hard at play
joining in with all the children's games
children run away from the man with the candy
children run away
the principal has a few words for the man
"better get out of here and take your van"
and then he's gone as he rides past your lawn
children run away
the man with the candy
has come to play with you today

WHERE'S JERRY LEWIS?:
where’s jerry lewis when you need the man
where’s jerry lewis when no one gives a damn
there’s my man up on the stage
and with the children about four in age
they’re crazy, they’re crippled but they’re lovely
(and young) and young and wild and lovely
(and crippled) and crippled (and crippled)
and it’s a crime, they’re lovely (and lovely)
where’s jerry lewis, who’s on the stage soon
who’s comin’ up (coppin’ a feel from a crippled baboon)
i’ll give my money to any baboon
who’s crazy enough to win my money
and there’s a cripple so i'll give some more
oh there’s a fiver for you son
i love you (i love you, too)
your lovely cripple boy (crippled)
the lovely cripple boy (crippled motherfucker)
where’s jerry Lewis when you need the man
come labor day each year
where’s Jerry Lewis (wheelchair blues)
where’s Jerry Lewis (mmm winner, you’re a real winner)
where’s Jerry Lewis?

I'M EVIL, JACK:
i don't mind livin' without a heart
i like fuckin' people over for a fuckin' start
i like to kill, nobody gonna tell me what t' do
i'll bite you black and blue
then later on when you're bleedin' dead
i'll be laughin' right over your fuckin' face
i'll be pissin' on your grave
i'll piss on your grandma's tomb
i'm evil, i'm evil, jack
i don't have no confessions
i got no conscience, i take lives
as a bum would eat bread and butter, i'll take a life
as a bum would take swig from a bottle a whiskey
that's how i take your life missy
i'm evil, jack
there was a priest
who once tried to have a talk with me
i wouldn't listen
there was a priest
who once tried to have a speech with me
i got news for him, he's dead now
i'm evil, jack
you better you better keep a lookout behind your back
because i'm e-i-v-l j-a-c-k, jack
i got no hang-ups about nothin'
i'll take a life, i'll take more than a life
i'll take life over death
no you won't after you meet me
i'm evil, jack
you might as well have a heart attack
it's better than goin'...
the way i'll get a hold of you
the way you'll go
i'll let you know i'm evil, jack

APRIL FOOLS (HE HAD THE CHANGE DONE AT THE SHOP):
he had the change done at the shop
earlobes for cocks
april fools
he had his balls thrown over the top
like a mop of hair
april fools
he had his buttocks transferred
to his cheeks on his face
april doom
because then where would the poop come out of
ohh his mouth
well he decided he wanted a vagina down south
april fools
where his belly button once stood
now stood a cock with a mouth at the end that ate the food
well, what a peculiar guest he was
at summer swimming parties
what with the nipples protruding from his eyelids
and, of course, beneath his chin the penis
and on his knees the sacks, he had two put there
april fool
jester wally jewel boy navel-eyed jack wiglet bill
you’ve had your fill of transplants please
you wish you could change back at will but...
tits coming off the backside, 69 to be exact
i thought it was pretty many but you be the judge
april dick
well, he became a woman then a man
then a dog, then a sheep, then a man, then a god
he had 'em all put on his body
gimme 75 tits, gimme 1400 balls
gimme cocks coming out of every living pore
ohh vaginas everywhere, a walking sex machine
ohh wonderful at bathing parties
april fools
but this was no, no april fools
this was for real
this was goddamn scary when he walked through the village
when he took his place next to the other boys in line
to serve his patriotic duty
well, it’s kinda rude the way people stare
he said "i’d like all, all the things i had put on me
covered up with billions of pieces of hair"

THE BOYS WITH THE BOYS:

that seemed to do the trick
(prick)

GOD IS GAY:

Jesus said "the gates would never open if this was true"

your banjo’s playing songs to attract all the boys
but you prefer girls, which is natural
Banjo Bonnie, William bring the honey
her butter-corned loins are burning like bumble bee wax
the teeth of the local bees are becoming annoyed with you
you’re taking all the business away
your banjo playing so sweetly like the honey
it's so sweet and funny

it's all the honey bees are gonna lend you this time
you can’t be put out by any fire truck i know of
that’s right because it’s
Banjo Bonnie, your fanny is funny
when it’s buttered up and eaten by William
and the other honey bees laced with honey on their wings
and they’re flying, teats exposed
all around everyone’s laughing
but the dead bees you’ve eaten now

My Daughter The Broad Reviews

All Music Guide Review

After Racially Yours couldn't be released in 1992, the Frogs spent several years recording away happily by themselves, creating a series of "Made-Up Songs" tapes that they sold and circulated to fans in between finding themselves feted by the alternative rock empire of the early nineties. A slew of selections from these tapes ended up forming My Daughter the Broad, a nicely rough counterpoint to the slicker, near-contemporaneous Starjob EP. To say that My Daughter the Broad is clearly a Frogs album and nobody else's is like saying the Pope is Catholic -- there's no question about it, it simply is. Some of the more insane song titles will confirm that much: "Which One of You Gave My Daughter the Dope?," "April Fools (He Had the Change Done at the Shop)," "Children Run Away (The Man With the Candy)," and the immortal wrongness of "Who's Sucking on Grandpa's Balls Since Grandma Ain't Home Tonight?" As before, the split between the two singers -- Dennis Flemion's rasping multiple characters and Jimmy Flemion's sweetly vile troubadour -- makes for even more entertainment. When they both try out on an occasional duet, the results are even more disturbing -- "Where's Jerry Lewis?" tears down that particular icon and more in a mere one and a half minutes. Musically the duo still know how to make astoundingly epic rock and roll, fractured folk, and heaven knows what else out of their particular stew, and as seems to be their preferred style, they're at their most outrageous when creating the most accessible music. "The Boys With the Boys" rides its gently strummed melody along to rather disturbing ends, while "God Is Gay" is calmly sung and softly performed, yet will never fit into any Christian church's hymnal. And who could knock the weepy piano ballad "I'm Sad the Goat Just Died Today"? ~ Ned Raggett, All Music Guide
