Frantix - My Dad's A Fu--in' Alcoholic 7" / Local Anesthetic Records / Denver, Co. / US / 1983 /
A handful of months back my bro and I purchased a moderately large DJ Pool collection of 12" singles and a bunch of mostly commercial late 70s/80s pop singles. For whatever reason, this was the only oddity in the collection...which was a nice surprise.
Frantix definitely had a wild #flipper , #fang , #notrend sound...but looked liked they had fewer adjustment issues than members of those bands and more just like goofy, dweeby suburban Denver kids.
Between having my cholecystectomy and being in recovery... still, death in the family and funeral arrangements, moving to the opposite side of the world and doing nothing but filling applications for jobs and houses until I fall asleep on my keyboard, and about a million obstacles more or less all at once, I have been a slug with posting any playlists. Before everything went black, I began curating an Anarcho Punk, Crust, Hardcore playlist that I will post to playlist-only Instagram account, DJ Nikki Tiki, before leaving to London next month. After that, nothing for an indefinite time. iMac is staying in Australia with everything I can't cram into 1 suitcase. I'll be without a computer and living the crust as fuck existence. Until it's up, and you get to hear more ripper songs like this, have a shot of Depression, straight to your heart.

Kim Gordon's "Girl In The Band" is required reading. Sonic Youth's "Dirty" is required life-blood.
“Back then, and even now, I wonder: Am I “empowered”? If you have to hide your hypersensitivity, are you really a “strong woman”? Sometimes another voice enters my head, shooing these thoughts aside. This one tells me that the only really good performance is one where you make yourself vulnerable while pushing beyond your familiar comfort zone. I liken it to having an intense, hyper-real dream, where you step off a cliff but don’t fall to your death.” - Kim Gordon, Girl The Band
