How can Clapton be God, when the more appropriate candidate is a 5-foot nothing, 140 pound Italian from the farmlands of Michigan? Frank Allison's Pig Out takes us back to another time, a peaceful time in our lives when money was scarce, joys were simple and love was exciting but hard. Allison's live renditions of his earlier classics, are welcome listening if not a bit harsh in front of what seems to be raucus crowd of Odd Sox listeners. Allison blasts out "Rodent of Love" then follows it up with rolling versions of "Tahiti", "Workman's Goon", and "Rita Meets The Mighty Mouse". Die hard Allison fans will share his lament of being left alone in a house he rented with some pals after high school in "Bachelor Remains". REAL die-hard fans will reflect on the irony of the song as Allison was once the first person to fly the coup in a similar situation many, many years ago. "Cash for my Car," recalls a time in our lives when just keeping the wheels moving and praying they would get you through a date with that special gal. In all, Pig Out is a celebration of Allison's true gift of melody, but his greater gift of lyric. Where have you gone Frank? We all could use another dose.

Frank's music makes me happy. It brings back memories of the twice monthly concerts he and the Odd-sox would perform in A2 that we would never miss. I was at this concert, and love this CD because of it. Frank's music is a wonderful ecletic mix of rock, hill-billy, jazzy music. It is a must. Unfortunately, there will be no more original music from Frank, he has Spasmodic Dysphonia and can no longer sing. If you want to learn more about Frank, check out his web-site, he has one as of August, 1999. Pictures, art, stories, limited editions and more abound on this site.

Back in the late 80's and early 90's, along about the time I realized that if not dead, rock and roll was terminally ill and on life support, and before going to bars started to make me feel both depressed and old, the highlight of any weekend was when either Frank Allison or See Dick Run played at the mecca of all things real, earthy, and geniune in local pop music: Lili's 21 in Hamtramck, MI. Now it appears the be-all, end-all for local scenesters is to line up and fall all over themselves in the hopes of catching a glimpse of Kid Rock, as sad a commentary on star culture as you're likely to find. Allison, an odd duck if there ever was one, apparently lived on a farm in Chelsea, MI, where he and his ever revolving band of ragged louts known as the Odd Sox created some brilliant, hook-filled tales about having your girlfriend stolen ("Jay"), bill collectors ("Crediting Men's Hayride"), car problems ("Cash For My Car"), and um, I'm not really sure what "The Rodent Of Love" is about. Stylistically, they're all over the map, from rock to power pop to country to jazz, all delivered with Allison's trademark twisted tenor. I hesitate to recommend this live disc as an introduction to Allison's knack for turning a lyric and writing a hook, but unless any of his early indie releases, in particular "Monkey Business," come back into print or you can find them used, "Pig Out" will have to suffice. Now if only someone had the vision to make the power pop genius of See Dick Run available to a wide audience...

Is it just me or is this Frank music great?
Technically, you'd have to say that Frank is a local music guy. And objectively I must like it because I'm from around here.
Everyone has their favorite bar band. Every town has one.
But is this really so? Well, of course it is. That's why the world goes round. Great music isn't really that surprising, is it?
Anyway, I have a hunch that Frank is bigger than local. His big-band, rompin', rockin' tunes are rough and boisterous yet still simple and friendly. It's big bouncy goofy dance stuff.
--And it's all about cars that don't start, crazy coworkers on security guard jobs, work crews and peanut butter sandwiches, doing wheelies on motorcycles, hot girlfriends who you suffer for, repo-men. I mean, these aren't just Detroit concepts are they? Detroit is where cool things come from and Frank is one of them. Nationally cool. He has something to tell you, to share, to bounce off you.
It's too bad the goof sang so crazy that he tore his vocal cords and can't sing anymore. He really did distort and put out the goofy sounds and crazy howls and hollers. But we still have everything he's done. Get whatever you can!

For those unable to locate Frank Allison's legendary indy cds, or unwilling to shell out the mega-bucks they command on the collector's market, Pig Out, "the live one," serves as a great introduction to Frank Allison & The Odd Sox. A melodic folk-pop-rocker with tremendous talent for "catchy" hooks and poetic lyrics capturing the bittersweet humor of everyday lives, Frank quickly rose to regional stardom and developed a "cult" following across the country, due, mostly, to "college radio" exposure. The "studio" albums are the ones everybody wants, because Frank has laden them with interesting and pleasing production tricks, but Pig Out provides a chance to hear "the real thing;" Frank and the Sox working out live in front of a crowd of wild "Frank-heads." The songwriting, as always, shines. The enigma of Frank's disappearance in 1996 seems an even greater loss after listening to him on this live recording, in which he is obviously enjoying the experience as much as the crowd. Where is he? What the hell is he doing? Can somebody PLEASE get him out there to "do it to us" once again?

Frank is God: Discuss! :)
Frank is not God, but the hand of God surely touched him and sent him to us. We all attended the Church of latter day blind pigs and worked ourselves into a frenzy some years ago. To paraphrase the man himself:"There ain't no way to describe him."
