The Frantics



REALLY excited about this latest pur-chase! It's a fantastic slab of 60's awesomeness. Not only is the A-side a killer mid tempo 60's garage gem, but the B-side is a Lux and Ivy Fave that was featured on LAIF volume 12 (albeit in a lousy quality mp3...but it was the best I could find at the time thanks to Mop Top Mike).

Either side of this Atlanta 45 would be right at home on one of the Teenage Shutdown compilations. For a neat pic of what must be one of the band members parents house, check out Greg G's page on the 45 here:

So download and enjoy, and for those who have LAIF #12 take that jack-knife mp3, delete it, and throw this version on there as it is a whole lot better sounding!

So put your wighat on and download immediately!

  5. Nice one! I poked around that Atlanta Time Machine site and found the Ernie Harwell 45 i've been looking for since he died. Thanks for pointing me in that direction!

  8. Those are some of the band member's signatures. Lee Luas' on the "Why" side and my dad's on the "Jack Knife" side. I'm asking my dad about the 3rd one.

  9. Sorry that was not a 3rd signature, I see now that is "1966"(thought it said D66), but the other 2 are Lee's and my dad's.

  10. Is this a different Frantics band than the Frantics band from Seattle who put out 'Werewolf'?
