While working on the layout for the reissue of FRODUS’ final LP, And We Washed Our Weapons in the Sea, guitarist/vocalist SHELBY CINCA stumbled onto a note that bassist NATHAN BURKE had given to him in 2001. The letter contained thoughts around a possible Frodus reunion and about Weapons, which had—after a long delay—only just then been released. Along with the letter was a tape, which contained Burke’s cover of the early Frodus tune, “Tzo Boy,” which he had recorded on a four-track in 1995, two years before joining the band. Nathan’s rendition takes a grungey teenage Frodus song and turns it into a heartfelt shoegaze gem, with the last lyrics hauntingly ringing, “I’m never coming back…”. That song and letter provide the A-side and cover art of this single. The B-side is a demo of the Weapons track, “There Will Be No More Scum,” which was recorded at the legendary Pirate House in Washington, DC by JUAN CARRERA. It’s a raw and intense take on the song, put to tape a year before the sessions for the full-length. This 7” is a must for Frodus completists, as it closes out the story of this era of Frodus and reveals heartfelt inner workings of the band as they truly washed their weapons in the sea.
