FRANtiCS - It's Casual [EXPANDED EDITION]

10" LP
OUT OF PRINT

DIGITAL DOWNLOAD
AVAILABLE








FRANTICS 
It's Casual [EXPANDED EDITION]

Sound at the speed of snot, super-sized.  Classic '90s skate punk LP is back as a download with 6 bonus tracks

Following a trifecta of hip indie label EPs, It's Casual was the first full-length release from the Frantics;  it did not disappoint.  The album was cranked at ramps and empty swimming pools across the USA, and the band became the blueprint for snotcore.

Though the vinyl pressing is long out-of-print, this cult favorite is available once again, now in digital form.  Includes the hits "Insubordination" (an instant anthem), "Breakfast in a Coffee Cup" (the caffeinated skacore smash), "Brain Cloud" and "Vibrant, Exciting, Diverse!"  Plus, extra material recorded during the same session:  "Peer Pressure" appeared on the Letters From Punksville CD;  "The Art of Losing" was on the ¿dEAD iS tREND? compilation;  two songs from a cancelled split 7" with Sister Raisin ("Revenge of Mr. Nobody" and "Get It");  the Dixie take-down ditty "Fashionably Incorrect" got sent off to another comp, but it never came out either;  the collection is closed out by an early take of "Intoxicating Elixir" with different lyrics.
