We are so excited to announce the official Record Store Day release of Frankie and the Witch Fingers’ fourth album “Brain Telephone !” For the first time via Greenway Records, the record is newly re-mastered and re-packaged with brand new art, the jacket features a UV-Gloss treatment like we’ve never seen before.  Totally re-imagined for Record Store Day 2021 and available on June 12th!, I have been waiting for this album to pop up and I was not disappointed. The groovy baselines mixed with funky smooth guitar riffs, sick organ/piano solo’s and harmonica will have you dancing wherever you hear this album. The fuzzy lyrics add to the 60’s vibe this album gives off and I highly recommend it!!

This heavy dose of ebb-and-flow rock ‘n roll now looks and sounds better than ever before! Run to your local record store and make sure they order a copy! Record Store Day exclusive “Brain Matter” Splatter will be available in the US, Canada, UK, EU and Australia while supplies last.


originally released February 2nd, 2018.

Hailing from Bloomington, Indiana, Frankie and the Witch Fingers play fuzz-drenched, organ-swirling garage rock, circa mid-‘60s San Jose, California. along with bands like L.A. Witch and Death Valley Girls, they are stumping up some gloriously fuzzy and freaky jams that harken back to The Electic Prunes and Thirteenth Floor Elevators, but also the Paisley Underground scene of the 1980’s.

Lead single “Vibrations” is the perfect example of the band’s adoration for the past with its wiry guitars, creepy pop vocals and saucy hip shake. Fans of OG garage bands such as The Count Five and Chocolate Watch Band will be pleased. This release comes in either “Potion Pink” or black vinyl with an insert.

They have a new record out on the great Permanent Records called Brain Telephone. It’s their fourth full length, and they are all worthy of your attention.


Frankie & The Witch Fingers do have a sound that is probably too big for Indiana to contain, So alas, with the stars in their eyes, they up and moved to L.A. like Axl Rose! It’s alright by me, as long as they keep churning out these magical LP’s.


As the diamond hits the plastic on Frankie and the Witch Fingers’ Brain Telephone, a sonic tornado swirls out of the speakers and into your ears like a psychedelic party-line flipping a black-and-white world into technicolor. The quartet cooks up a cachophonic soup of sounds which boil over as the troglodytic beat and the fuzzy phased-out guitars melt together. From here, the spell gets sweeter.


A rock n’ roll groove laced with slap back and heady lyrics quickly connects your call to the Witch Finger’s acid boogie shack nestled deep in the belly of Los Angeles.  A transformation occurs as mind bending shadows appear on a yet-to-be-named purple planet with lush gardens of grinning neon fungi bopping and swaying along to each catchy hook and chorus. The serpentine tape reels capture Texas barn burners, hallucinogenic Chuck Berry guitar licks, and middle-eastern rave-ups along the way as well.  This adventure is littered with evil caricatures and surrealistic visions that will warble your mind, if you stay on the line.
