I have to say I only own two Flop albums (Whenever You're Ready and World of Today) but Eggs and Ash must be one of the sweetest and strangest things I've ever heard.

Good to see the band got its own section. Cheers! :D

There are more than those 3. I only have the same ones you mentioned, but there is also "The Great Valediction EP", and "Regrets" CD Single and a few other promos I've seen floating about. They also a bunch of vinyl releases, I think only one has songs that weren't featured on either CD called "The Losing End" 7"

:lol:

Yeah, those are the only 3 full length albums. I don't have "The Great Valediction EP" so i have no idea what it has on it. But i'm always on the look out :D

I'm a little bit nerdy when it comes to buying records. If it's a single, i'm 100% downt o buy it, and in the next day or two, I might find another CD single with a different cover, same songs and I will still buy it! I might have an addiction, but at least its a cheap addiction :lol:

I only seens Pearl Jam and Nirvana singles the most around here on CD, a lot of different stuff on vinyl. Although, I do prefer full lengths, but some bands didn't release that many, so I have to quench my thirst in another way :P

Yeah that one is awesome! I think A. Wylie was another grungy one I love and the other song on their youtubevevo, other than that I should really check out more.

Yeah they're entire catalogue has pop classics scattered around. Mix the hooks, with Rusty's lyrics, and it amazes me how they didn't get much more attention outside of Seattle. I think they had all the tools to be a band that would be remembered. If you like Flop's poppy stuff, check out Pure Joy, even more pop classics from Rusty!

Oh yeah I think I liked Pure Joy. I should really go back and check out the bands I've discovered, but man there are SO many of them! It is cool to see people that love to dig through the whole scene like me though.
