They were a real buzzkill for the drag race known as hardcore :) . From the stories I heard, never let them stay at your house or give them money

I dunno. They were never quite as good as Flipper Jr.

But, really...who is?

Flipper was a great band. Perfectly sloppy.

Something I never understood was why everyone always drooled over Generic, when Gone Fishin' is so much better. A little harder to find, but worth it.

Generic was the classic, it was definitely the best overall. Sex Bomb Baby had some of the best songs though, which makes sense cause it was basically a singles collection. "Get Away" is the greatest thing they ever recorded, in my mind. Fuckin' bomb ass.

a reissue of Generic on vinyl or cd would be nice. Are you listening Touch & Go? Chrome was nice, how about Flipper.

Yep. It's a shame.

I think the vinyl version of "Generic" was still available from Subterranean Records up to a couple years ago. They don't have the rights to release any of the old Flipper stuff on CD because the band gave the rights to all of their stuff to Rick Rubin in the early '90s. Subterranean (who were pissed about not being involved with the catalogue transfer) protested but then got sued by Def American, who made them lose a lot of money.

Anyway, not crap. "Gone Fishin" is a killer record as well.

My first hardcore show - 1987 Flipper and Bad Brains, Ritz NYC made an indelible mark on my 16 year old psyche. I rememebr Ha Ha Ha in particular. That double live album was great.

I don't like their music. It sounds hopeless and depressing to me. It's almost like the lead singer had a drug problem and was about to die.

While I don't listen to their records any music that conveys that much emotion is Not Crap.

Flipper's Generic is one of the most intense records I've ever heard. These guys were the real deal, living on the edge and staring into the void. All of the stories I've heard about them make them out to be hard-asses. I know Falconi was a Vietnam veteran.

It takes real guts to realize just how much pain there is in life, and then to transcend that somehow.

Falconi's guitar playing is so brilliant. Just this wash of noise, with melodies hidden deep inside the swirl.

When I think about what "punk" is, I think of Flipper.

If I didn't discover this band, I don't know where I would be right now. It's fucking amazing. Flipper defines and transcends punk.

I have no words to express how much I love Flipper, and how important they were and are to me.

Flipper Rules.
