One of the best EP's in rock history.

"Classic Frogs.This terrific EP is no longer in print. The Frogs also recorded a terrific album for Scratchie called "Hopscotch Lollipop Sunday Surprise" which is also no longer in print, and not even listed on Amazon. Why? Because SCRATCHIE RECORDS SUCKS. They obviously have more important artists to worry about, such as Fountains Of Wayne (*vomit*).Pick them up if you find them. You may never see them again!"
Another refreshing short, solid effort from the Frogs

"Appropriately produced by Billy Corgan, under the pseudonym Johnny Goat, The Frogs Starjob EP functions as a quirky biography of the early 90s grunge scene, focusing on longtime Frogs fan Kurt Cobain in particular. Documenting the sudden rise and fall of Nirvana and their followers in less than 17 minutes, the Flemion brothers graphically depict the lasting impact and the constant turmoil of the late alternative titans making for one of the shortest "concept albums" ever created. Amazingly enough, aside from the wonderfully vulgar pop of "Raped", Starjob is relatively inoffensive, quite the feat for the Frogs, and follows a more traditional song structure that combines the subtle dream pop of the Smashing Pumpkins with the simplistic acoustic melodies of the Violent Femmes. Certainly on the more literate end of the alternative spectrum, it's nice to hear a band as intelligent and sincere as the Frogs comment on and put into perspective the whole grunge phenomena after the constant media hype had finally died down. However, regardless of length or even lyrical content for that matter, a new batch of mellow alternative songs from one of the most underrated bands in the world of indie music is always a cause for celebration and is at the very least worth a listen."
Ahhh ... The Frogs

"This EP is nothing short of pure genius; the songwriting is great and the sense of humor refreshing. Produced by Billy Corgan under the nickname "Johnny Goat", it has a great sound and a very creative feel. If you haven't heard the Frogs, get the Hell out of church and open your damn mind already. Best songs: "Weird on the Avenue", "Raped", "Lord Grunge"."
