Trouble In The Jungle is the sixth release by Teenage Head and their fourth full-length studio album. It was issued in 1986 by Warpt Records as catalogue number WR-924 and distributed by ARC Sound Company in Canada. It was available on LP and cassette. Singer Frankie Venom would leave the band after this album was released but returned in 1989. This was also the last recording to feature original drummer Nick Stipanitz who is listed in the credits as an additional musician. His replacement Mark Lockerbie is featured in the "Frantic Romantic" video.[1] "Frantic Romantic" was originally released as a 7" vinyl single by Warpt/Ahed Records in 1985 with non album track "Get Down" on the B Side. It was reissued in 1986 by Warpt with "I Can't Pretend" on the B Side.[2] Trouser Press espoused that Teenage Head reclaimed their "sense of fun on the nifty Trouble in the Jungle".[3]
