Frenzy is the second album by Mojo Nixon and Skid Roper, released in 1986.[8][2]

The album was re-released on CD in 2005, with the EP Get Out Of My Way! added to the end. The CD uses the Get Out of My Way! mix of "Stuffin' Martha's Muffin," which filters the telephone conversation part of Nixon's opening monologue to sound like he is talking on the phone, instead of the original Frenzy LP mix. "Transylvanian Xmas" is a version of "Joy to the World," performed by Roper on harmonica with the melody tweaked to sound spooky; Nixon plays bongos. "Jesus at McDonalds" is a newer recording of the song from their first LP, Mojo Nixon and Skid Roper.

Critical reception[]

Trouser Press wrote that "the musical accompaniment to Nixon’s often hysterical socio-political commentary is mostly a frisky down-home mixture of blues, R&B and rockabilly."[1] The Los Angeles Times wrote that "the duo ravages the basic blues structure with violent strokes of new wave madness."[2]
