Disappointed at the lack of flipper babies involved here.

You had XCIII, right Ian? With "Arroyo?" Blahness is part of the point of that record, I guess. Part of the satire. "So Long" is a manifesto of blahness you might say. The one after that, Winter, is shorter songs. Those two albums are killer. (I have an earlier one that is not as good - though it does have one amazing track entitled "Sea and Sky.")

Merill Ward is one of the best singers ever. He beats Rich Stim by a mile and a half.

I await the day when you will eat the crow upon hearing the greatness of the Winter LP.

The last song, "The Man Upstairs," has to be heard.

PUBLIC FLIPPER LIMITED IS ON ITS WAY TO MY HOUSE! i tried to find it in chicago, and didnt, but this hot chick at reckless asked me if i wanted to leave an order for it, so i would get it if it ever came in. i was like, sure yeah. then i totally forgot about it, and i got a call last week at a baseball game, saying it was in, and that was why that weekend was the best weekend ever.

The original members of Flipper, barring the late Will Shatter (with Bruno DeSmartass replacing Shatter once again as he had done for a 1982 tour), reunited to support CBGB on August 26 and 28, 2005. Singer Bruce Loose appeared on stage with a cane and heart monitors. This line-up of Flipper then continued to play live again beginning in 2006, with plans for a new album to be released and recorded in 2007.

Lazy Comet (plsmith), Tuesday, 22 August 2006 20:06 (thirteen years ago) link

so did anyone go to this?

dmr (Renard), Friday, 25 August 2006 19:26 (thirteen years ago) link

yeah. it was pretty awesome and loud.

how long did PJ play?

Lazy Comet (plsmith), Friday, 25 August 2006 19:42 (thirteen years ago) link

yeah. it was pretty awesome and loud. PJ played what seemed to me to be a short set compared to the other bands.

killy (baby lenin pin), Friday, 25 August 2006 19:48 (thirteen years ago) link

=[[ (eman), Friday, 25 August 2006 19:53 (thirteen years ago) link

Machibuse '80 (ex machina), Friday, 25 August 2006 19:58 (thirteen years ago) link

sleep (sleep), Friday, 25 August 2006 20:01 (thirteen years ago) link

one year passes...

i like on the unreleased studio sessions version of 'you naught me' where the band won't stop playing and the singer is going "1 2 3 stop" "on the count of 4 stop" "turn off the tape" XD

why Generic considered their best record while Gone Fishin is actually better?!


nostormo, Tuesday, 4 February 2014 19:33 (six years ago) link

you are wrong, the best Flipper album is Public Flipper Ltd

production on GF is questionable, for reference see the early version of "Sacrifice"

Option ARMs and de Man (s.clover), Sunday, 21 February 2016 06:09 (four years ago) link

I used to love that track when i had the e.p. on vinyl. I think they added the e.p. tracks to the Sabotage live lp when it was reissued on cd a few years back didn't they? Otherwise not sure where the tracks are available.
Actually not sure hwo good the other 2 tracks are Hedda Gabbler is a slow droning dirge thing that I never got into and Memphis Tennessee is a too straight Chuck Berry cover isn't it?

Chicken shit was about Cale's whole band quitting thanks to onstage antics from the ex-Velvet or so i believe.

Flipper is touring with David Yow on vocals. Don't know if this has been going on for a while or not. Anyone seen this particular setup yet?
