Public Flipper Limited Live 1980-1985

12" LP

Availability: In stock


Quick Overview

Public Flipper Limited was originally released in 1986 as a double LP of live material culled from 1980-1985. The sound quality and playing are both a grimy, distorted mess, which suits the band just fine. Always alternating between endearing and abrasive Flipper left no room for the middle ground of 'like.' The album title is a shot at John Lydon and his alleged plagiarism of Flipper's artwork for his own PIL and it proves that Flipper was never opposed to alienating its audience, no matter how sanctified. Harsh, art-rock classics from one of SF's most important post-hippy era bands.


A two-record set of live material recorded between 1980-82, this is as good as Blow'n Chunks and essential for born-again Flipperphiles. The sound is messy and grimy, but that enhances the experience, but it's also easy to see that Album was without a doubt their benchmark record and that even the good material released after it (like this LP) couldn't equal its high (low?) standards.
