HIGH ENERGY PUNK ROCK & ROLL
"Rock N Roll Monster!" - Electric Frankenstein's only release on the famous Au-Go-Go Records. This is a special Electric Frankenstein release with the late great Rik L Rik as a guest vocalist, in celebration of Rik's 20th year in Punk Rock!  Electric Frankenstein cited Rik as one of their main root influences, having written the very best southern California style Punk Rock songs.

Au-Go-Go records, famed for their Australian release of records by Mudhoney, Dictators, Butthole Surfers, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Dinosaur Jr, Lemonheads, Scientists, and many more, teamed up Electric Frankenstein and Rik L Rik to create a most incredible High Energy Punk Rock & Roll team-up of all time.

The record features the vocals and lyrics of Rik L Rik, who has the claim to fame of having released the FIRST Punk Rock album in California during the late 1970s, with is band F-Word, on the famous Posh-Boy Records label. Rik was also famous for his great solo material, which many bands have covered and site as an influence. No less than Rolling Stone magazine named Rik as "the next greatest singer in Punk after Iggy Pop"!  Sadly, Rik passed away unexpectedly in 2000, from a brain tumor, so Electric Frankenstein is particularly beloved of this record, since it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to record with their idol.

Also featured on this record is the the lead guitar of Jim  Foster (ADRENALIN OD), and the drumming of John "King of Men" Steele, who both helped develop the Electric Frankenstein sound. Also, a Germs tribute song "A Singer's Blood/Naked Heat" (which lifts the rhythm from "Sex Boy") appears, written by Rik L Rik, who was a close friend of Darby Crash, the infamous Germs singer. Finally, the record featues cover songs of Australian 70s Punk band The Fun Things, infamous US Punk band The Misfits, as well as Negative Trend and F-Word, famous Rik L Rik songs, with Rik and EF playing together this totally ripping classic southern California 70s Punk Rock songs, some of the best ever written by anyone.

Cover art features the fantastic work of Andrew McLeod, well known Australian tatoo artist, which he considers one of his best ever.

This record is sure to be must have by all EF fans and a great way for new fans to pick up some of the bands best material, since it is the special record of EF's career.

“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 and 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."

"A bunch of guys from New Jersey exhume the rotting corpse of rawk'n'roll and, ramming together bits and pieces of the best of 60's garage,
Detroit rock and 70's american and australian punk, create the best sounding creature the world has had the fortune to lay ears upon in the past ten years. Nobody does it better. New Bomb Turks, Murder City Devils, Spitfires,       Hellacopters, Oneida, Nomads, Zen Guerrilla, and the combined  rosters of
Estrus, Get-Hip, SubPop, Empty, Junk, Dyonisus, In The Red, Sympathy and Bomp! All have to stand aside and pay homage to the Kings of Rawk!!!
As shocking as anything the Stooges, the Saints and the Scientists ever did
