Man, Flipper really was the best band ever. Currently listening to the 1983 live album Blow'n Chunks after a long time, and it's amazing how they drag everything down with them into their sludgy, nihilistic churn. Sometimes I think the reason I like Wolf Eyes so much is because they're like a modern-day Flipper for nouveau noizeheads, sans the sardonic humor that makes me love Flipper so much (Wolf Eyes would never do a song called "Ice Cold Beer") and the truly scary staring-into-the-abyss-and-not-even-blinking attitude of prime Flipper. Wolf Eyes are doe-eyed flower-toting hippies in comparison. Optimistic even. Right, well, I like Wolf Eyes and all but Flipper still rules OK! Dave Q where you at, dude?
