LA TEENAGE HEAD
( FRANKIE VENOM R.I.P.)
Gerry Jenn Wilson
I was 'Sweet 16'
the first time I had the pleasure of rocking-out to Hamilton, Ontario's
legendary TEENAGE HEAD!!!...They
played my High School...Georgian Bay Secondary School..in "Buttfuck"
MEAFORD, ONTARIO...A.K.A. "Beaver Valley High!"....this region of
Ontario is known for "Blue Mountain Pottery" & Apple Orchards
Plenty...with a lil Skunk Bud in the mix!!!...
Teenage Head are
hands down one of the coolest Punk/Rock n' Roll bands representing
Eastern Canada, known for their killer stage shows & "Hits a'
is the theme song for Cult Film "GOLDIROCKS"...directed by Paula
Tiberius. .not to mention "HAWAII",
"PICTURE MY FACE", "TEENAGE BEER DRINKING PARTY", "DISGUSTEEN", etc... They were
the anthem songs that got us 80's Adolescents over "ZIT N' TIT
ANGST!"...When TEENAGE HEAD
hits the stage the party is ON!!!!..
It is with great regret to be the bearer of bad news, (on that note!)...FRANKIE VENOM (TEENAGE HEAD'S
WILDLY ENTERTAINING FRONT MAN/ SINGER)...has left the building...his
ticket has been punched...& our dearly beloved singer is no
I can assure you he is with-out a doubt "Kicking
It Out" Somewhere in The Netherworld!!...What is so
Frankie's passing is that TEENAGE
HEAD just toured through Vancouver, B.C. in May, 2008
where they put on an unforgettable show. Frankie
Venom succumbed to throat cancer mid Oct. 2008..(only 5
Frankie Venom was the
real deal!!..He will be missed by us all at PUNK GLOBE MAGAZINE!...
"HERE TODAY, GUANO TOMORROW!!!"...."VIVA LA TEENAGE
