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?

In Berlin, the stairs to the U-Bahn have advertisements--maybe you've seen them--and one time, I saw one for a radio station that was the lyrics to "Sex Bomb."

their glory definitely faded, though..saw em live here in Toronto around the time of the American Grafishy tour...flashes of brilliance, but they left people feeling a lil sad for em by the end of the night

you are right, though...when they were on, there was nobody more on :)
