The Frogs were a brothers Jimmy and Dennis Flemion from Milwaukee. It’s Only Right And Natural was their second album, but when it was made, as a bunch of four track recordings, it was only meant for the ears of the brothers and close associates. Gerald Cosloy of Homestead Records (now of Matador) convinced the band to release it in 1991. Lyrically is plays with stereotypes, mainly of a homosexual nature, and it annoyed the heck of the Christian right in the US. It won the band a bunch of celebrity fans including Kurt Cobain, Billy Corgan and Beck, who sampled the song ‘I Don't Care If U Disrespect Me (Just So You Love Me)’ on ‘Where It’s At’ from Odelay.

"That was a good drum break" cries a Frog on the album's second song (you'll recognise that clip from Beck's 'Where It's At' - if you're a Beck Fan of course) and it was many people's entry point into the world of the Frogs in the mid-90s.
Fantastic acid-fried stream of consciousness freak-folk from a couple of delinquents with way too many lyrical nods to getting stoned and shagging sailors down by the port. It's fantastic. No holds barred, absolute fun (you can hear them cracking-up on several tracks as they wing the lyrics) and an absolute must for anyone that likes a good laugh.
