American Grafishy

Genre: Rock; Producer (group): Def American; Status: In Season

Flipper was the first band to meld punk rock with heavy metal, thus becoming the grandfather of grunge. Losing an essential band member (original guitarist Will Shatter died in ‘87) hasn’t kept Flipper from making this disappointing comeback LP, American Grafishy, which is a straight-ahead exercise in loud, sludgy rhythms and cynically gleeful, by-the-book nihilism.
