the Frogstranglers / Press

"The Frogstranglers are a wild bunch full of great rockin' grooves and clever lyrics. They have the rock-a-billy/punk sound of Social Distortion mixed with the clever riffs in the style of The Cramps and They Might Be Giants."

"Boss Beat Records is an underground operaton with sounds by acts all over the globe and "Rise of the Hot Rod Zombies" is the latest and perhaps best compilation with about 22 raw, unfettered gems. They include Los Angeles horrorbilly band Los Creepers 2009 re-recording of its garage party single “Pack Your Sh*t,”; Stigma 13’s “Nervous Wreck”; the Irish Brothers’ “Turkish Song of the Damned”; the methamphetamine-fueled rush of the Chuck Berry-influenced “Chicken Pickin'” by the Racket; the extremely lo-fi, finger-popping swing of “Lover Blues” by Vicky Tafoya; and the country-tinged garage rock of “Faraway” by the Frogstranglers. It all ends with the noir-ish instrumental “Meurtone Surf” by, you guessed it, the Muertones. This is an eye-opening comp, offering an international view of the independent mighty underground roots scene. Seek it out. ~ Thom Jurek, All Music"
