Frontier Records is owned and operated by Lisa Fancher and will celebrate its 35th anniversary next year. Based in the San Fernando Valley since its inception, Fancher is instrumental in releasing classic punk, alternative country, paisley underground, goth and pop records that are considered classic ‘must-haves’ to critics and serious music collectors alike.
Among the first to tap into the Los Angeles punk scene, Frontier Records’ initial success was releasing the classic Circle Jerks’ record Group Sex. This was later followed by Orange County’s Adolescents’ debut known as the Blue Album, TSOL’s Dance with Me and Christian Death’s Only Theatre of Pain. However, it was the eponymous debut LP from Suicidal Tendencies that spawned the unexpected MTV smash “Institutionalized” that put Frontier on the map. If you caught the Don Johnson vehicle Miami Vice episode featuring Suicidal, you’d know the mainstream finally caught up with the underground.
More news about Frontier Records is on the horizon including a new Adolescents album, a Lisa Fancher-programmed internet radio station and a major 35th anniversary promotion with illustrations by Jaime Hernandez (Love & Rockets.) Fancher is also featured in the upcoming record-collecting documentary, RECORDS COLLECTING DUST that likely will have a release in 2015.
