First taste

Post by bluearmageddon » Fri Nov 05, 2010 10:32 am

What was you guys' first taste of Flop?
For me, my friend gave me the "Bite Back Live at the Crocodile Cafe", which had all sorts of goodies on it, Tad, Love Battery, and Flop being one of them. The song was "Circus Freak", and it blew my mind.

The segment in Hype! where they're recording "Julie Francavilla" got me hooked.

My first taste, I didn't like them so much... But after awhile.... I love them! Reminded me of when I listened to Meat Puppets II

That is a badass CD with a bunch of great lesser known grunge/Seattle acts. I loved Citizens Utilities, and the Fastbacks' live take on "Always Tomorrow" is a killer version as well :mrgreen:

Of course Flop is amazing, everything Rusty Willoughby touches turns to gold...An amazing singer/songwriter/musicians I think Seattle ever had.

um...You know, besides that guy named Kurdt Kobain or whatever 8D

When I first saw them on Hype! I couldn't stop laughing at the entire part! The band! The music! The peach fuzz moustache! The lack of height! :P :P All of it was just a giant cocktail of comedy & I couldn't stop cracking up

They show some great records at the end though!
Since then they've grown on me :P but I still laugh everytime I see that part, so does everyone I've ever watched it with :P

Haha, I remember reacting in almost the same way when I saw them on Hype. I was like, "What the fuck is this lame emo pop band doing in this movie??" But...that song is pretty catchy...

I popped their CD into my car this morning. It was weird and nostalgic. They're still so awesome though, so painfully 90s too :lol:

Painfully 90s is a great phrase to describe, well, anything.

My first taste of Flop was the song ‘Julie Francavilla’, which was the song that persuaded me to add the album ‘Whenever You’re Ready’ to my music collection.
