|“Who is the most important underground rock band
of the last 10 years?” Just ask anyone and you will be greeted with the
same answer: “Electric Frankenstein”. There’s no doubt about it. With
music appearing on over 65 albums, compilations, singles and 7-Inches,
there is no harder working band in Rock ‘N’ Roll today. Electric
Frankenstein is a movement, a working-man’s answer to what is missing
from popular music in the world today; straight-up, raw, in-your-face,
combustible Rock ‘N’ Roll. Electric Frankenstein simply has no equal."
"Wild mix of the Dolls, the MC5, the Stooges, pre Rollins Black Flag
a whole lot of 60's garage rock hooks. These guys make it all seem so
easy. The twin guitar sound is as big and thick as a wrestler's neck,
and it's perfectly complemented by singer's WWF approved holler."
