Abe Froman - Abe Froman

Abe Froman – Abe Froman

Plan-It-X, 2001

Acquired: Love Garden, Used, 2007

Price: $6

So, first and foremost, this is a glaring filing error. In the real world, this should be the first record in my collection, as the name of the band is the name of a fictional character (the sausage king of Chicago from Ferris Beuller’s Day Off). Yet when I organized all of my records I somehow filed this under F for Froman. Doesn’t really matter though. This record is pretty fucking awesome and I am 95% sure that 99% of anyone that likes independent music has never ever heard this record. Probably because it’s way out of print, but it’s super awesome. I mean, it’s nothing spectacular, but it features the awesome Erin Tobey (whose excellent solo LP I will cover later on) and the awesome Matty Pop Chart. And it’s all short, fast, loud and screamy punk rock. It’s a super solid record for what it is (a record recorded in a basement by a bunch of punk ass kids) and I’m glad I bought it at Love Garden. Although, when I did I thought I’d never see it anywhere again and I couldn’t find it online so I just grabbed it, and just today I was in there and saw ANOTHER copy of it. What the hell? Maybe my percentage is wrong, because somehow two copies of this record ended up in Lawrence, Kansas.
