“Where bands (and fans) from the past are concerned, one can count on a picturesque crowd. The question is always the music: do the players still have something to say, and can they bring it with gusto? Frightwig was one of the SF punk scene’s most aggressive and eccentric bands. Barely acknowledged in their time, they are now credited with providing the spark for rriot girl and subsequent significant musical currents.
Before they played a note, their words of greeting made clear that the years have not dulled Frightwig’s edge. They bench-pressed their set, punching out their fluid mixture of garage punk, metal and art grunge with a relentless blend of joy, humor and rage…the explosive triumph of Frightwig…”
”We will note that our personal high point was the Frightwig concert wherein some spectacularly-dressed-and-costumed people “crashed” the stage and participated in an anarchic Iggy Pop-like singalong.”

Frightwig had a blast in Los Angeles on May 25th at The Satellite with Imperial Teen and Churches. Punk rock illuminati turned out, James Wilsey, Nicole Panter, Patty Schemel, Steven McDonald, Tim Ferris, Ginger Coyote to name a few! Many thanks to Imperial Teen!
Eric Drew Feldman is in the final stages of mixing our new EP titled “Hit Return”. Frightwig revisit their beginnings, by re-recording “Crazy World”, “My Crotch”, “Big Bang” and “A Man’s Gotta Do, What A Man’s Gotta Do”. Bonus fifth track previously unreleased is “Crawford’s Song”.
We are honored and excited to go back to Hyde Street Studios, where we recorded our first two albums! We are re-recording four of our classics from the first two albums. And, one new song from the early days of Frightwig. Eric Drew Feldman is playing keyboards and producing. Wow!
