So after reading the book 'Everybody loves our town' I checked The Gits out on youtube. I was instantly in love with this album despite never really listening to anything that resembles punk/hardcore. And it is that. Because it certainly aint 'grunge' in the typical Nirvana sense. In short, this album rocks and should have a place on the shelf of every fan of rock and its many subgenres. It packs an almighty wallop but also a great depth of genuine feeling. Fantastic. These tunes and vocals will stand the test of time.

This is literally one of the best grunge CDs I've heard so far. It has a clear cut sound which makes somewhat pop related, the guitars are really nicely saturated, the drums are really emphasized and Mia Zappatta's voice gives a great grungy, "expressive" side to the CD.

I find this CD too single paced. I enjoyed much more "The conquering chicken" as there is more variety. Mia's voice is anyway outstanding and the grungy guitar sound is very powerful (I wish I could play like that)

5.0 out of 5 stars It all dies anyway 7 May 2004
By Erica Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If one good thing ever came out of my adolescent years, it was my love for music, especially punk rock. Back in high school, I was surrounded by too many conformists. You were either a jock/cheerleader or a metalhead. I was neither. During my freshman year in high school, I discovered Social Distortion and the rest was history. I threw myself into the whole punk culture. I lived and breathed punk. I read legendary fanzines such as Flipside and Maximum Rock 'N Roll. I bought music that I read about in the pages of Flipside and Maximum Rock 'N Roll. One of those bands I bought was The Gits. I bought "Frenching the Bully" one day (along with 7 Year B***h's "Sick 'Em All"). I was totally blown away by what I heard. Mia Zappata had an amazing set of vocal chords. In a genre of music where musical abilities isn't necessarily a prerequisite, Mia could actually sing. "It All Dies Anyway" (my favorite song by The Gits) was fast, loud yet melodic. The Gits certainly had that grungey sound to their music but they were by far not grunge. Their music was as fast as speed metal and as raw as The Ramones's music was. They lived and breathed the whole DIY life. They had that fierce independent spirit that the punk scene had (before it became watered down pop music no thanks to POS bands like Good Charlotte nad Blink 182). Tragically the band's career was cut short when Mia's life was taken from this planet (happy ending: her murderer was found in a Florida prison who is serving time for another crime). Although their time together was brief, The Gits gave me hope and left a legacy with their classic "Frenching the Bully". R.I.P Mia.

5.0 out of 5 stars Live at the X-Ray 24 April 2006
By D. Fletcher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Actually haven't heard this CD, yet, I can still comment on part of it. I was the lucky guy who did the live recording at the X-Ray Cafe. Sold the masters to the band a couple years ago and just now got around to thinking, "I wonder if they ever did anything with those masters?"

So, I was there at the show and can say that every ounce of energy that the band put out (which was considerable since this was the last show on their tour, but they knew the X-Ray was special and gave it their all)- It was all captured on these recordings.

The machine was a Tascam 688 that used standard cassette tapes for 8-channel recordings. Most all the mics were either Shure SM57/58, but there was also a high quality Shure stereo mic overhead that was mainly used for capturing the drum kit but also provided a nice stereo image of the stage.

The X-Ray was perfect for this type of recording. The tiny PA was only used for the vocals, so, there was no competing with a PA blasting everything. I would place a SM-57 close to every amp. Had a nice specialtiy bass mic, too. Usually, 8 channels was enough to catch everything, but, there were extra inputs where it was possible to stack multiple mics onto a single track if needed. Because of the overhead stereo catching the drums, this was rarely needed.

With a full house, such as the night with The Gits, any reflecting waves were just soaked up by the body mass of the crowd, creating what turned out to be a very nice intimate recording space. There was split box on stage which fed all the mics to the X-Ray "business office" next door, which is where the Tascam was setup away from any real danger. All of which made it a fun gig to record in comfort and be able to also go over to the stage side and enjoy the show. Every once in a while, magic happened.

5.0 out of 5 stars masterpiece 9 Jan. 2012
By mikesr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Every song on this album rocks. It was one of those albums I listened to in my car for a year atleast without gettting sick of it, and I still listen every now and then some years ago and love it.
I understand the tragedy will always shadow the band and music, but it shouldn't. I honestly would say its a masterpiece if the tragedy never took place. Mia and her band were talented musicians.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 5 Mar. 2010
By Teazingweezer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I had never heard of the Gits until a couple of weeks ago when I watched their documentary. I fell in love with the band and I bought this CD on Itunes. I was blown away by the entire album. It has a mix of studio and live recordings. Their music definitely won't be for everybody, but give it a shot. It might the gem you've been looking for.
4.0 out of 5 stars A nice trip down memory lane 6 May 2010
By E. Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A couple of months ago I rented the documentary The Gits. The film quickly re-awoke a love I had for the band when I was in high school and college. Since I had sold my copy of Frenching the Chicken years ago, I found a copy of the re-release version that was re-titled Frenching the Bully. I admit that I thought the live tracks were pretty useless to me but the first half of the album makes it all the well worth the money spent on it. Mia Zapata had and always will have an amazing vocals especially in the punk genre (IMO The Gits' music was NOT grunge).After well over a decade, I was surprised by how well The Gits' music has held up despite the amount of time that I had spent not listening to them. I never heard a woman like Mia sing like the way she did in the alternative/punk rock scene. She had a big, powerful voice which really convey the emotions she invested into her lyrics. After all these years, "It All Dies Anyways" remains my favorite Gits song. It is so darn catchy. I also love "Another Shot of Whiskey" and "Second Skin". The death of Mia was a tragedy to say the very least. The Gits never got to show how truly special they were really were and what they had to offer. I definitely recommend "Frenching the Bully" for those who saw The Gits documentary and loved it as well as any music fan looking for something new and different.
