The Frut: Spoiled Rotten (Westbound 2008)

Metal Mike Saunders, Shakin' Street Gazette, 1972

SPOILED ROTTEN is the title and that's what they are. Motor City rock is dead, and the only great group left (The Stooges) recently bit the dust somewhere up in the Hollywood Hills. The Frut are the kings of the heap now, but only because no one's left to challenge them, not even Frijid Pink. They beat up Brownsville Station in 1968, but could the Frut manhandle anyone now? No way!
