Description

The Frogs "It's Only Right and Natural"30th Anniversary Vinyl Re-Issue. Originally released in 1989 on Homestead RecordsLong before Dennis and Jimmy Flemion found themselves adopted by avatars as far flung as Jim O'Rourke and Sebastian Bach, before their Cause celebre lead to a near-boycott (of a record label no one was buying records from anyway) and certainly before Beck Hansen had the bright idea to sample, "that was a good drum break" from "I Don't Care If U Disrespect Me (Just So You Love Me)", there were the songs. The goddamn Made Up Songs. On cassette tapes. Legend has it they fell into the hands of my friends and I due to the patronage of one or two midwestern underground rock luminaries but I prefer to believe it was an otherworldly intervention that first brought "Out Of The Mist" to my basement boom box (albeit on the flilpside of a live Die Kreuzen recording). To call the impact seismic would be an understatement ; I've yet to recover!Is it fair to say that arm-twisting the Flemions into a thematically consistent 'It's Only Right & Natural' did their prior and future works a disservice? Probably. Simply because it's one of the most inspired albums of all-time, DIY or not - doesn't mean they peaked (if you're inclined to investigate further, you'll figure it out. And if you're not inclined to investigate further, I'm pretty sure you and I have absolutely nothing to say to each other). Is it fair to say Homestead's ill-advised attempt to claim FROGS was an acronym for "FOUNDING REVOLUTIONARIES OF GAY SUPREMACY" was a profoundly stupid gesture, guaranteed to lead to no good whatsoever? Not exactly. I don't remember getting any advice. All of that aside, IOR&N more than holds up as a monumental WHAT THE F**K moment in pop history, even if it only skims the surface of the brothers' respective skill sets and vast influences. Many of us have the album's lyrics, Jimmy and Dennis' vocal delivery committed to memory.
