"I could tell as soon as we started working together that this would be a really fun group. Our songs are so catchy, simple, and honest. We have a really great dynamic!"
The Flips' new ep on Hozac, I Just Don't Know Where I Stand, is a glorious thing. It has the shang-a-lang of the Shangri-Las, the sass of Nancy Sinatra, the snot of Pearl Harbor & the Explosions, the power of Holly and the Italians, the beauty and the beat of The Go-Go's, the pop hooks of the Brill Building and the sweet venom of punk.
Have a listen.
They had an added tuffness live. Someone should release all their recordings. They've just split up. I'm already nostalgic.
