Album Review

The most immediately obvious aspect of the Gits' debut album, Frenching the Bully, is Mia Zapata's righteous, feminist-tinged punk rage. Her songs wind their way through tales of deception, insecurity, failed relationships, and hard drinking, while her hoarse, husky voice supports the combination of toughness and vulnerability projected in her lyrics. Even if Zapata's meanings are occasionally a bit obscure, and even if a few songs seem to lack adequate melodicism, Frenching the Bully is an invigorating piece of punk rock. [The 2003 reissue on Broken Rekids is remixed by Jack Endino and adds "Spear and Magic Helmet" to tracklisting of the original album as well as eight songs recorded live in Portland taken from a June, 1993 show and the single version of "Twisting"]

A very particular brand of punk with a distinct perspective was emanating out of the American northwest during the early '90s, and the Gits were instrumental...
