Dr Frank Weakly Reader for 02.15.2019

post-Valentine edition

FRONT BURNER

— DR FRANK LIVE AT THE COURT TAVERN: We announced the release of this 3 song 33 RPM flexi and opened “dibs” for it on Monday and I did a big write up on Medium explaining the ins and outs of it. There was a video on Wednesday (for Odin) with some “minor secrets.” The release date of the digital version was scheduled for Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, but as of Weakly Reader press time, it doesn’t seem to have showed up on any of the services yet. (The Orchard, you had one job…) It’ll turn up eventually. They usually do. And I’ll let you know when it does.

MTX A GO-GO

— MTX themed Valentines from Lauren.

THEY CALL ME (DR FRANK) THEY CALL ME DR FRANK…

OTHER PEOPLE’S MUSIC

— Pet Shop Boys — “On Social Media”: this is pleasant enough, well written with some fun rhymes, and the video is visually / graphically clever, but if it is, as it seems, intended as a satirical skewering of its subject — well, it seems far too gentle a treatment for something that is destroying civilization and eating away like a ravenous serpent at the very soul of Man. More vitriol next time please.

FEAST YOUR EYES

IN THE NEWS

— A rather hilarious Stasi field guide to youth sub-cultures, ca. 1985. DDR punks must have been something of a different breed.
