THE FRIGGS ( ROCK CANDY )

This next post, is for my best friend , my wife Karen . she really likes this disc . we saw them live once, and I was very impressed. definitely my favorite female garage band. I like just about every song on this disc. most of the female garage bands that I've heard tend to have a fluff to them, or just sound winy or screechy . These girls are loaded with attitude. The Friggs defined chick-driven garage rock during their ‘90s heyday. From their first 7-inch single in 1991, “Come Now,” The Friggs reigned as the queens of garage-pop sass, mixing it up with their own blend of surf, punk and girl group influences and releasing five 7" singles, one 10" EP and their classic debut album, Rock Candy, over their nearly decade-long year career. Led by ponytailed minx-with-the-mostest Palmyra Delran, The Friggs’ guitarist and principal songwriter, the girls shared a passion for trash pop culture, up-tempo rock music and getting the audiences up and moving. -- their track “Shake” appears in the hit film Superbad. "Rock Candy" proves to be one of those classic debut albums that rocks and rolls at the same time. Bad Word for a Good Thing" recently featured on a commercial for Chevy Trailblazer. Other movie credits include: "Jawbreaker" (2 songs), "Prey for Rock & Roll" (1 song), "Lipstick & Dynamite" (1 song), "the Treasures of Long Gone John" (2 songs), & "FUCK" (1 song) Like everyone else these days, they have a myspace . http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=59124011 go check it out.

I'd like this too! The old link goes to long-dead megaupload, not mediafire.
