Take It Or Leave It
A Tribute To The Queens Of Noise
The Runaways

(2011 Main Man Records)
The first band to prove to the world that women can rock, The Runaways influenced everyone from The Go-Gos to Guns 'N' Roses.

When we were asked to participate in a tribute to Cherie Currie, Joan Jett, Lita Ford, Sandy West, Jackie Fox and Vickie Blue we didn't hesitate. We ended up making a number of appearances on the album, including our own versions of "California Paradise" and "American Nights" (which features Cherie Currie on co-lead vocals), but we also served as the "house band" for David Johansen's take on "Blackmail" and Richard Barone's cover of "Hollywood" (which also features Kenny Aaronson on bass).

Method To Our Madness
(2011 Main Man Records)
When it came time to write and record some songs for an upcoming film called Let Me Down Hard, we were so happy with the results that we decided to revisit some of our older material.

So you may recognize a few of the titles on Method To Our Madness from our earlier CDs, but rest assured these are all-new recordings and we're prouder of this record than we've ever been of anything we've done.

To raise funds for the victims of Hurricane Sandy, prominent New Jersey performers once again rise to the occasion. The anthemic song, “Restore The Shore”, written by shore singer/songwriter Lisa Bouchelle, will raise funds for the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund, which is chaired by the wife of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (www.sandynjrelieffund.org).

The song, released under the name “Lisa Bouchelle & Friends,” is available through iTunes or as a CD single. The song was mixed by renowned producer Michael Barbiero, who is noted for his work on the Guns ‘N Roses classic album “Appetite For Destruction,” as well as releases by John Lennon, Metallica, Counting Crows, Three Doors Down, Maroon 5, and more.

Featured performers include:
Garry Tallent (The E Street Band) - Bass
Jerry Gaskill (King's X) - Drums

In case you missed us at Main Man Records' Bundlefest on February 24, 2012, here's the first song from our set, "Everybody Else".

For a band to say that their latest album is “the best thing we’ve ever done” is pretty standard promotional practice, but in the case of FRANKENSTEIN 3000 and their 2012 release Allerton Avenue, the cliché also happens to be a fact. After a year that saw them sharing the stage with such legends as David Johansen (New York Dolls), Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols), Billy Rath (Johnny Thunder’s Heartbreakers), Urge Overkill and The Waldos (which features Walter Lure from Johnny Thunders’ Heartbreakers), FRANKENSTEIN 3000 recorded Allerton Avenue quicker and took more chances than on any previous album. Back up singers (on “Another Way”), horns (on “Coming Down (Mint Memo)”) and a psychedelic experiment (a cover of Love’s “The Red Telephone”) all come together to make the most adventurous yet most cohesive FRANKENSTEIN 3000 album to date. Allerton Avenue features the signature FRANKENSTEIN 3000 sound while at the same time expanding on everything that has come before it. “Caesar”, an homage to the 4:30 Movie, and the Johnny Thunders tribute “Thunder” can be described as “classic F3K”, but their take on the southern boogie of ZZTop’s “Heard It On The X” and the hardcore punkish “Bully” (clocking in at just 47 seconds) definitely break new ground for the band.
