One of San Francisco's greatest musical entities WITHOUT A DOUBT.

Many have tried to conjure the raucous aural ugliness that is Flipper, but there can be only one king, duh!

Here's a wonderful set w/ great sound from a time when they were at their most ferocious; the din they create is sheer beauty, the banter is caustic, and did I mention they were tight as fuck on this night? Yeah...

Flipper - 06.28.1981 The Keystone, Berkeley, CA (KALX Benefit)

(Because I am not a dick I will share with y'alls what I consider to possibly be my favorite Flipper recording.
Leave a comment will ya?
The dialogue around here has dwindled down to nearly nothing lately. Fuckin' leeches man, I tell ya)...

    <span style="color: #777777; ">The only Flipper story of any sort I have is about a guy named Kurt I knew back when I was living in Rochester during the very early 90s. He lived in his car and had a small but good record collection in there. I asked to borrow some of it and he let me borrow SOME of what I asked. One thing he let me check was Flipper's Love Canal/Ha Ha Ha 7". A quick Google search would confirm this, but I remember it being Alternative Tentacles #7. His car got impounded and I heard about 6 months later he had moved out to the west coast to live with his sister and had converted to Christianity. Over the years a lot of my record collection has gotten lost/damaged/stolen, but somehow I still have that 7"...</span>

  8. Thank you for this.  I missed Flipper when I was just living out in NorCal this past year and I am kicking myself for it.

  9. You're always welcome, Rog.
    How's it hangin' bro?

  12. Well that is sucky, I'll look into it.
    I'll try a few different computers & browsers, see what happens, etc.

    Thanks for letting me know.

    Anybody else?

  13. This one is definitely "I guess you had to be  there" department. Don't think I'll listen to it again but super fun to imagine being there!
