Boo Frog - Better Than The Rest LP

$ 10.00

NEW. SKULLMAN RECORDS. "The more things change, the more they stay the same: Portland trio Boo Frog is a relatively new band, but one with a lengthy pedigree (guitarist/singer Chris Newman played for many years in the seminal Napalm Beach) and one that found its origins in remembering those who’ve departed. The band first came together as a one-off at a tribute for the Cramps’ Lux Interior, but it soon became an ongoing concern. “Sky Is High,” the opening track on their latest LP, Better Than the Rest—which celebrates its vinyl release at tonight’s show—is a tribute to Newman’s musical hero Sky Saxon of the Seeds. Heavy distortion and punkabilly stomp make up Better Than the Rest, and it’s a grimy, trashy, good-time record that knows that sometimes the best way to honor the past is to rock into oblivion." NED LANNAMANN, Portland Mercury
