Frantix

Today I received the Local Anesthetic CD compilation by Smooch Records, and it is simply amazing! It contains the complete story of this Denver label – based around the Wax Trax Records store – that helped to put out discs by now legendary bands like Defex, Bum Kon, White Trash, and (my personal favourites) Your Funeral and Frantix.

 Frantix

As for these lads, there was also a CD released in 2003 by Afterburn Records. Remember going nuts when I noticed about it, because at that time I was very curious for all bands with Flipper-esque references and noisy garage sounds. The songs compiled on the CD were from demo tapes and a live set recorded in 1983. By the way, anyone got their complete demo… or were there only four songs on it?


Frantix – FM Ear (Insane Tunnel Demo Tape, 1980)

 
Frantix – Vietnam (Duane Davis, 1983)
