Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2003-11-08 
Re-release of classic Feederz album that featured a large cover photo of the space shuttle Challenger exploding (uh huh, with that in mind turn this baby over and check out the reproduction of the original back cover). Early 80’s Phoenix hardcore, as irreverent and socio-political as it gets. The biggest joy about the Feederz style of punk however is that musically its extremely unique, not following the 3 chord heavy distortion recipe so common elsewhere. Nothing cliché about Frank Discussion’s clean guitar that still comes across like a buzz-saw and the multi-metered disjunct timings and rhythms employed. Everything about Frank Discussion and the Feederz fits no mans mold. Frank is still active, had a brand new album out on the A-file earlier this year. He is one of the great dissident voices in music today (see also Jello Biafra, The God Bullies, Culturcide, Zero Tolerance Task Force). Play this! All songs genius.

1) movie sample: futility of existence, morose
2) complex timing: classic female spoken refs to material items and modern conveniences
3) Frank appears, slow fast punk
4) upbeat spy punk feel, FCCs
5) urgent tom tom beat, anthemic
6) more “punk”, driving, standard delivery yet still distinct
7) cheesy old movie/musical sample
8) call to arms: kill the cops, burn down the city
9) faux swingy spoof take on Tennessee Ernie Ford classic “16 Tons”: futility of work, careers, 2 FCCs @ 2:45, preview and edit (…”strawberry shortcakes with some positive bits, your so fucking beautiful, youre so full of shit…”)
10) “nice” solo guitar inro to fast one line punk
11) weird near hair metal “sensitive” intro, builds, instrumental
12) PLAY THIS ONE: creepy extension of track 2 – consumerism, unwitting time capsule of 1984
13) hey it’s the “Network Rant” we use as a LID on the digicart sans the LID
