Frodus: Radio-Activity CD (Running time: 77 min)
Magic Bullet Records MB036

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Propaganda wave 1, a call to arms..

The past-musical entity from Washington, DC known as Frodus, also known as “The Frodus Conglomerate International”, “The Great Eye”, “The Fallen Phoenix”, “The Black Sea”, “The Weapon”, has resurfaced due to the interception of radio broadcasts by network operatives. It is said that the founding members themselves have had their hands in the resurfacing of broadcasts from numerous FM radio transmissions. The transmissions are as follows:

1998 FRODUS TRANSMISSION UPLINK:
KXLU (Lost Angeles, CA) – June 08

1996 FRODUS TRANSMISSION UPLINK:
WMUC (College Park, MD) – August 05

1995 FRODUS TRANSMISSION UPLINK:
WHFS (Washington, DC/tri-state area) – March 11

Seen as a call to arms and as a sign of the times, these live performances embody the frenetic energy and passion in the words of Frodus. A stark reminder of the impending dark-future of cold mechanized productivity that has been set in motion by the governing forces and corporations of mankind. Trading apparent freedom for higher productivity and e-enslavement solutions. The entity of Frodus spoke out on such subjects and existed within the modern punk movement of the mid to late nineties spreading its tendrils to the Far East and beyond.

Even as the underground movements of art/music becomes commodified by major corporations and small “independent” corporations desiring to become major, these intercepted transmissions stand as a reminder of battles and steadfast stances. Without false-revolutionary rhetoric, without regurgitated political propaganda, but with words that hold true beyond the test of governing systems of mankind. A torch that flickers in the subterranean recesses of the human psyche, that man itself has set in motion the machines of destruction of greed. And that man itself must eradicate the acceptance of these thoughts 
and practices.

Frodus, one of the few, but not the last… TR4N5M15510N5 NEVER D1E…
