ETHEL THE FROG picture
Ethel the Frog was a heavy metal band formed in 1976 in Hull, England. They are notable for being a part of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal movement. The band's unusual name was taken from a Monty Python sketch about the "Piranha Brothers".

After building a local following, they released a heavy version of The Beatles song "Eleanor Rigby" in 1978. Ethel the Frog also contributed the song "Fight Back" to one of Neal Kay's Metal for Muthas compilations. In 1979, they signed a recording contract with EMI, which re-released the "Eleanor Rigby" single with "Whatever Happened to Love" as the B-side.[1]

Reports vary on when the group broke up, but it was either immediately prior to, or shortly after, the release of their self-titled debut album, which was released in 1980. The album cover artwork for Ethel the Frog was done by David Dragon.
