CLASSIC RUINS -Lassie Eats Chickens LP (Throbbing Lobster 12)

Classic Ruins - Lassie Eats Chickens 9-song LP (Throbbing Lobster #12) 1985: Classic Ruins -Lassie Eats Chickens LP (Throbbing Lobster #12) Frank Rowe is a genius. He's always had a steady day job, plays the clubs on the weekends, and every year he writes one or two rock'n'roll classics. (Lassie contains about five years' worth.) Not exactly garage, nor roots music nor guitar-rock, but pure Boston and -heck- just pure. These were the first recordings by Frank's first "permanent" band - the same trio lasted well into the 90s - and they're helped out on five tracks by Billy Borgioli of the Real Kids. We sent a photographer into a junkyard of old Cadillacs to look for something with lotsa tailfins, but she came back with a photo of the back of a '57 Fleetwood[?] instead - with a bumper-sticker that said simply "Lassie Eats Chickens." That referred to the episode where Lassie was unjustly sentenced to the pound and certain euthanasia for stealing chickens from the neighbors' coop...so it was up to Timmy to save Lassie's bits, for a change. Apropos of which Byron Coley wrote "If Lassie kills chickens, just imagine what one of the Classic Ruins' songs will be able to do to a shrimp like you. If you ever want to sleep soundly again, you'll buy this little piece of insurance."
Available only on original vinyl: new/unplayed $12 [sealed copies are available for the same price, but see 'about Throbbing Lobster' for details!]
