Someone recommended a band to me called Flipper. I know nothing about them, what album is a good place to start?
is the best one to get. It is brilliant.
the 'sex bomb'compilation, buy it for me. I lost it and it now sells for about £40 on Amazon. It's a collection of all their best stuff, and has the best angry rant at a crowd I've ever heard ('LITTLE kids!'). Failing that, get Generic. You can keep that one.
Don't buy 'American Grafishy'. Rubbish. Get Blow'n Chunks if you can't get anything else.
They're really noisy, sloppy punk. I like them more than almost anything else in the world.
I think they're good, but I'm not as much of a fan as thewarn.
FACT: Kurt Cobain is wearing a Flipper top in the In Utero booklet.
in ages, time to dig them out methinks, have just spotted Public Flipper Limited next to me and will look for my tape of Blow'n Chunks and whatever else I have
One of my friends has most of their stuff on vinyl. One of the albums comes with a monopoly style game. We all played it tripping once and it's a game you can't really win, pick up card "you play show and steal $200 from promoter but catch VD from his wife, move back five places" :D
They do sound interesting, so I shall also heed any recommendations here.
that made a flipper t shirt but got the name wrong? Tell the story again!
on ebay a couple of weeks ago. It comes up there (normally from German/Dutch sources) occasionally.
My friend was trying to be kool like Kurt, but unfortunately met me at a gig once with a spot on fish picture with 'FLIRPER' written above it in big letters. Ace.
My grammar is terrible but you get the idea.
They're supporting at the Melvins gig aren't they?
Will Shatter is long dead, and Bruce Loose needs a cane these days. Can't imagine it would be the same.
it did make me wonder how a reformation would work.
Today on Newcastle's Brand New Community Radio Station they played Ha Ha Ha by Flipper in between Nelly Furtado and Timbaland. It blew my miind man.
I thought it was worth mentioning. Nobody at work cared, but I have high hopes for the community radio station. I hope they play Dicks Hate The Police in between Mary J Bilge and Robyn next.
Generic is ace. I am going to try and get this best of that thewarn talks of.
is $10 on the ROIR site now which is tres cheap.
Just purchased the new DVD that came out a couple of months ago. The Sex Bomb comp is a great place to start actually. I was pretty much an instant fan after hearing that.
Just noticed how old this thread is!
