|Competition: Flipper Discography|
2009-05-18 by Dave Donnelly STAFF | 16 Replies | 1980 Views
Legendary San Francisco punks Flipper release both a new studio album, Love, and a live CD, Fight on May 19, and to coincide with the release we've got prize packs containing the band's CD catalogue to give away.
The albums were recorded in 2008 with producer Jack Endino, during former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic's two-year stint with the band. That came to an end late last year when Novoselic left, citing family commitments. The group's difficulties with bass players once prompted frontman Bruce Loose to observe: "[it's] like Spinal Tap, except the bass player keeps dying."
The band have made an MP3 of 'Be Good Child,' the lead single from Love, available for free download ahead of release.
We've got three CD prize packs to give away, and this includes:
Love - CD (2009)
Fight – CD (2009)
Sex Bomb Baby! - CD (1988)
Public Flipper Ltd (Live 80-85) - CD (1986)
Gone Fishin’ - CD (1984)
Generic Flipper - CD (1982)
To enter, simply send your full name and the answer to our very difficult question to firstname.lastname@example.org.

I just wanna hear some Krist Novoselic... The forgotten child of Nirvana.
I've never heard of this band but free music is always good.
Also lol at the bass player quote (unless some of them actually did die)....
yeah. will shatter died of a heroin overdose in the late 80s. according to wikipedia, there are also two other dead bass players that i didnt know about haha
yay i was a winner
thanks! :] hopefully theyre good
so the competitions are actually real ?
oh you havent listened to flipper yet? theyre amazing in my opinion, but they can be hard to get into. there aren't very many bands that sound like them, and they don't have a very accessible sound - or a very easy to define sound.
yeah, i just listened to sex bomb and they sound great
