Hillbilly Frankenstein was a band from the Athens, GA area whose heyday was in the early/mid-90's - I discovered their album, HYPNOTICA in a San Francisco record store, wondering what it could be from the cover art. The name 'Jeff Walls' jumped out - known as a member of Guadalcanal Diary (and producer, and now a member of The Woggles)... that alone made it a must buy for me.

HF is sort of the aural equivalent of the mental picture that the pairing of those two words brings to mind - a little bit of this, a little bit of that, mix it up and Dixie-Fry it all up in a Wall o' Sound.

Hypnotica is hard to find now - equally hard to find are the compilations that feature HF.

One of the last releases was a split 7" with The Woggles - Side A featuring "Saved" and "Buzz The Jerk", and Side B, featured here, with HF - "Rawbone" and "Satan's Circus".

Their CD is one of my all-time favorite albums. THANK YOU for providing me with two new (to me) tracks of this band after all these years!
