Song of the Day #337
The Frogs - “I Don’t Care If U Disrespect Me (Just So You Love Me)” (It’s Only Right and Natural, 1989)
You can tell this record was made without any audience intended (beyond a few close friends). Some of the best art is made that way, whether seemingly very planned-out (Kafka, for instance) or completely spontaneous, like this album, and anywhere in between. It comes across in this album because it’s recklessly outlandish, especially in its portrayal of homosexuality. I enjoyed it a lot but the more I’ve heard about The Frogs the less I want to like them (hearing that they’ve played a gig in ironic blackface, for instance, has made me like the record much less). I can’t determine whether or not any of The Frogs are actually gay.
Still, the way they lazily sling together chords and phrases is the foundations of slacker rock, and the genesis of anti-folk (if you can bear that phrase). For instance, Pavement modelled their classic "We Dance" after The Frogs. And you’ll probably recognise the line Beck sampled from this track.

This looks terrifying and reminds me of a certain part of Heart Shaped Box

Hey I drew a thing. It’s over here too.
I know they’re supposed to be sphinxes, but it no-reason annoys me that she’s not a cat, and that he’s not a gryffin. Also sphinxes are supposed to have human faces… ¬ _ ¬
I had to rewatch this episode because I was half sure he had wings. I decided to draw him as a gryffin anyway. Wings are fun to draw.
This is really cool
