On December 10, 2008, in Albums, by admin


Gone Fishin’ is a 1984 LP album, the sec­ond stu­dio release by San Fran­cisco punk/noise rock band Flip­per. The album’s art­work fea­tured a depic­tion of Flipper’s tour van as a ready-to-cut-out-and-assemble cen­ter­piece, with sim­i­lar cutouts of the four band mem­bers on the back cover. At the time of the album’s release, Sub­ter­ranean Records offered extra empty cov­ers of the album by mail order for $2 for those Flip­per fans that wanted to have a cover to cut up and assem­ble. The album was reis­sued through Water Records on Decem­ber 9, 2008 for the first time on CD, with liner notes pro­vided by Buzz Osborne of the Melvins.

Flipper album Generic Flipper

On December 9, 2008, in Albums, by admin


Album — Generic Flip­per is the debut album by the San Fran­cisco band Flip­per. Many fans say it is the band’s finest release, and it is def­i­nitely their most acclaimed release. In Novem­ber 2007, Blender mag­a­zine ranked it #86 on their list of the 100 great­est “indie rock” albums of all time. It is also referred to as Album, Album: Generic, Generic Flip­per, and just Generic. It is con­sid­ered a ground­break­ing album, the first album to play with the sludge and heav­i­ness of early Black Sab­bath but still be con­sid­ered a punk album.

Generic Flip­per was issued on CD for the first time by Amer­i­can Record­ings (for­merly Def Amer­i­can) in 1992 and later deleted. In 2008, the rights reverted back to Flip­per and the album was reis­sued by Water Records on Decem­ber 9th, 2008. For­mer Nir­vana bassist Krist Novoselic, who joined Flip­per in 2006, con­tributed liner notes to the new reissue.
