SongoftheDay: SEX BOMB by FLIPPER

novslayedSan Francisco’s Flipper jumped into the emerging California punk rock scene in 1979, messed around sporadically until the 90s, then reunited in 2005.  With a rather heavy bass sound, and a slowed-down approach to the genre, these dudes stood outside the norm in what was becoming a breeding ground for faster hardcore bands in the area.  The individuality would gain them an almost cult status with their fans.  As a huge influence on the grunge scene of the 90s, notably influencing the sounds of bands like The Melvins and Nirvana, it was no surprise when bassist Krist Novoselic joined a reunited Flipper from 2006-2009. – FATS
