Set the trend for grrls to riot
Daniel J. Hagerman | barnegat, NJ United States | 02/07/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"there is a band called redd kross. they play a song called crazy world. i absolutley adore it and when i heard it was a cover, i had to find the original. i love this band. angry and focused, loud and proud to be make this band inspiring. frightwig are a merry go round of women from the san fran scene who got together to play what is now called foxcore.
over the years, certian memebers dropped out for one reason or another but the band lives on with this album, which is the combination of their first two records. it is riot grrl music before the riot grrl existed. short and sweet, they hit hard and fast and leave you gasping for more. their songwriting is strong and some of the best punk ever recorded. the guitars are abrasive but melodic enough for you to stay transfixed. the drums beat out from your speaker and will have your feet moving in no time.
try something new and good. try this."
Possibly my favorite punk band of all time....

"Saw Frightwig many times in SF way back when. Powerful and emotional onstage, their first two albums (combined on this disc) captured their sound well. Often compared to Flipper, Frightwig's sound was more focused, more angry, more irreverent as they skewered gender roles, fought despair, and questioned authority. Words can't describe how insanely great these women were."
Wild women + Rock N' Roll = a five star disc
Richard Cody | Oakland, The Golden State | 12/30/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This disc - a compilation of Frightwig's first two (and best!) albums ("Cat Farm Faboo" and "Faster, Frightwig, Kill! Kill!") - is a must have for anybody interested in punk/grunge/wild woman rock n' roll (circa 1984-1986). I am not sufficiently educated on the subject to say how much influence these women might have had on the women rock n' rollers who came after them, but I would guess that the frantic, pounding, groaning, snarling, rocking and irreverant swirl of sound Frightwig created must have been a profound inspiration for any budding and angry young female (and male)musicians who heard them back in the eighties.Classic tracks like "My Crotch Does Not Say Go" and "Punk Rock Jailbait" are highlights but, truthfully, each and every track here is a unique and slightly tarnished gem. Great liner notes include a brief "herstory" of the band."
