My favorite American punk band Flipper are making a surprise return to the live circuit, minus substitute bassist Krist Novoselic, but accompanied by Jesus Lizard front maniac David Yow. This Bay Area group—which still features original members Ted Falconi and Steve DePace—released one of the deathless documents of Reagan-era rock in 1982’s Album Generic Flipper. A dirty bomb full of nihilistic sentiments and implosive dirges that rivaled Swans for triple-bummer catharsis, the LP has paradoxically given life to people of a perverse mind-set for decades—especially the sludge-rock avalanche of “Life Is Cheap.” If Flipper simply performed Album front to back and left the stage with middle fingers aloft after the chaotic payload of “Sex Bomb,” that would be perfect. by Dave Segal
