FRENZAL RHOMB with TEENAGE BOTTLEROCKET (USA)
FRENZAL RHOMB have finally finished their new album SMOKO AT THE PET FOOD FACTORY in Fort Collins Colorado, with Descendents' Bill Stevenson standing watch as producer!
Bill's famous punk rock studio operates within the grounds of his large pet food factory; processing gristle, fillers and connective tissue into extruded, rolled and pressed pet chunks.
The process of living, recording and especially sleeping within such an environment was confronting for the 4 vegetarian members of Frenzal Rhomb, but the resulting music is so chumpy, you could carve it.
SMOKO AT THE PET FOOD FACTORY is set for release August 19 through Shock Lyrics to the first song BIRD ATTACK are insultingly simple, and were aired at recent shows: "Magpie, seagull, ibis. Eyes drawn, ice cream, helmet".
And the pet food themed indignity continues for 16 tracks, including one near the end about world famous bass player and alleged substance abuser Karl Alvarez.
Nestled comfortably in-between are songs about cockroaches, goths, racists, rapists and heaps and heaps of ciggies. Frenzal's album launch tour happens this September with US punk band Teenage Bottlerocket supporting!
Punters are invited to bring their own invitro meat recipes to share, and make stem cell donations at shows.
Lindsay McDougall would also like you to be aware that "meat slurry" is mechanically separated meat, produced by forcing beef, pork or chicken bones through a sieve, to separate the bone from the meat tissue.
This will be mixed with water to make it more easily fed through the tubes at all shows...
