When Frightwig first entered my consciousness in the mid ’80s, they struck me as a female Butthole Surfers—which is a fine thing to be struck by. The San Francisco band’s 1984 debut album, Cat Farm Faboo, flared into rude action with a feral, blown-out blues-rock that flashed plenty of middle fingers to decorum and male chauvinism. Faster, Frightwig: Kill!! Kill!! built upon the band’s bravura rock insubordination, and the Russ Meyer allusion reinforced their badass attitude. Frightwig reformed in 2012 after an 18-year hiatus, and the current lineup features Deanna Mitchell, Mia d’Bruzzi, Cecilia Kuhn, Rebecca Sevrin, and… former Captain Beefheart’s Magic Band/Residents/Pere Ubu member Eric Drew Feldman. Very interesting. Go and let Frightwig get your panties into a righteous twist. DAVE SEGAL
