Flipper first EVER show with David Yow

Footage of first ever show where Flipper was joined by David Yow (best known as frontman of Jesus Lizard and Scratch Acid)

Flipper featuring David Yow

On a Sunday afternoon in the fall of 2015 the Public Flipper Limited corporation reconvened their bored members and brought the beast out for a walk. David Yow (best known as frontman of Jesus Lizard and Scratch Acid) took the lead vocal mic for a brief tour that saw the band play San Francisco, Southern California, Brooklyn, Philly and I believe some tempting gigs in Italy that were the real date bait.

Here’s some footage from the show I was able to capture, it was pretty dark but the sound was good and gives ya an idea of how it went.

The lineup also consisted of Bruno DeSmartAss (also of Flipper pals band The Sluglords) on bass, original skinsman Steve DePace , and veteran guitarrorist Ted Falconi plucking the six strings…

“Ever” is a dark Will Shatter era classic from their 1981 “Generic Flipper’ LP, seen here performed at The Bottom Of The Hill in SF 10/10/2015.

Ever live a life that’s real

Full of zest, but no appeal

Ever want to cry so much

You want to die

Ever feel that you’ve been had

Had so much that you turn mad

Ever been depressed that (to) those you turn to, you bring distress

Ever sit in tormenting silence

That turns so loud, you start to scream

Ever take control of a dream

And play all the parts and set all the scenes

Ever do nothing and gain nothing from it

Ever feel stupid and then know that you really are

Ever think you’re smart and then find out you aren’t

Ever play the fool and then find out that you’re worse

Ever look at a flower and hate it

Ever see a couple kissing and get sickened by it

Ever wish the human race didn’t exist

And then realize you’re one too Well, have you … ever .. I have
