By first taste do we mean something of the “how did you first get into Flop?” persuasion?
My friend ... who is a bit older than me, born in 1978, and from France ... is a fan of them. He loves grunge and suggested them when I started getting to like grunge.
I tried some of the songs from Whenever you’re Ready ... I adored them. Their attack stance of combining shattering powerchords and poppy harmonies was wonderous and revolutionary for its time. Rusty as a songsmith distantly echoes a Seattlite Difford-Tilbrook... very sophisticated. I own the Whenever youre Ready album, I love it and it definitely takes me the listener on a peregrination Through a plethora of emotions.

Fans in Seattle arent especially common, it would so appear. But Flop fans in Eurasia are especially few-and-far-between. They supported the Posies here in 1993-4, and a few know from that.
It's hard to start things over, You can feel the fire around us, All the time.
