CD Reviews

Essential Flipper
Dokter Pogo | New Orleans | 02/28/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The only negative thing about this CD is that it consists of one single track. Yes, the whole show is one long track, defeating the "skip" button on your cd player. This is a hassle if you jump in your car and want to hear "Sex Bomb" (the last song) right away. You have to sit there with your finger on the fast forward button until you reach the song that you're looking for.
But this being a live Flipper show, you shouldn't want to skip anything here. Every microsecond of noise, feedback, and guitar abuse should be consumed greedily by your ears, because only Flipper can be this chaotic and this disciplined at the same time. The show starts off with "Billy Sacrafice and the Little Italians" singing "If It Don't Fit, Don't Force It", and then the wheels of the might Flipper machine go into motion. For the next hour, listeners are put in the center of a live Flipper show, and frankly, there are no words to put it into true perspective. The music is thick and massive, often sounding like it's sucking the oxygen out of the room. The vocals are harsh and fit the music like an abused leather glove. Their chemistry comes through on this recording, and you can tell that they're all on the same level musically and not just playing riffs that they wrote together. It's no wonder why some of the top "modern rock" icons give so much credit to Flipper. They were ahead of their time (I was only 8 when this show took place), and their music still stands up to the garbage that is being released today.
Face it...if you're reading this review, then you must have an idea who Flipper is, and take it from a true fan...you can't afford to go through life without this album. Here's a free tip...the listening experience goes nicely with a case of beer while playing Grand Theft Auto 3. You're welcome."
"Life is the Only Thing Worth Living For"

"Flipper were a drugged out, feedback drenched,impossibly slowed down ultra unorthodox hardcore band. This cd documents them at their live peak. The cd is all one track. Its the concert as is. It takes you back to an era when as someone I knew said, "you could catch a quality indie band at CBGB's ever night". This cd documents one of these shows. Guaranteed Kurt Cobain and many other followers heard Flipper. So should you."
Beautiful - just flippin' beautiful

"As a liner note states, this is " BEAUTIFUL CHAOS."

I almost blew out my speakers and the sub-woofer. You have to play it loud. The house shook and the dog is nowhere to be found.
I can't wait until I have a few beers and do it all over again.

I wish I had been at the May 14, 1983 show at CBGB's. I know I would have been screaming into the microphone along with the other fans. Whoever sang " Hopelessly in Love," did an amazing job. At times, I thought it was the lead singer for the Butthole Surfers. I guess we'll never know.

The sound quality is great. I do wish it was in surround sound. Oh well, I shouldn't snivel.

For me, " Sex Bomb" is the stand out song; but, don't worry, this entire CD is great stuff. That is assuming you love Flipper. There is no middle ground. You get it or you don't.

If you get it, buy it.
