I was lucky enough to see Flipper back in '81, '82, '83 etc. I was at the Kezar show. this dvd is a must for anyone who, like me, loved [loves] Flipper. the Berkeley Square footage captures a long-dead era when going to shows was lots and lots of fun- count the smiles in the audience; check out the diversity of the crowd, and how they are acting. that was true freedom! no stupid slam-dancing or moshing because it hadn't infected punk yet with its conformist, lunkhead idiocy. THAT KIND OF PSEUDO-PUNK DIDN'T EXIST. listen to the sophistication of the lyrics. the band, and its audience, are not morons with nothing better to do; they weren't chasing the corporate music business dollar. and they weren't making bubblegum punk for an audience who doesn't know better.
believe me: Flipper was the REAL THING.
maybe you think, no, Flipper can't play; this is not the point. the point is that they ARE Flipper. Ted Falconi's silver-voiced ringing guitar; Steve Depace's primordial beat; Bruce Loose's laserbeam sarcasm, Will's incredible, atavistic bass. they're all in it together, and we lapped it up. watch Will Shatter pummel his sawed-off bass; watch the band laugh at themselves, at the joy of it all. sure the footage is raw and the sound is what it is [I thought it was fine, but I experienced this low-fi era, and loved it] but again, that is not the point. the point is the experience. I did have to speed up "I Am the Wheel" because it became interminable- again, that's the point. who can outlast the song, the band or the audience? yep: that's how it used to be, kids. LOTS AND LOTS OF FUN. I saw a lot of familiar faces...
the Kezar show presents Flipper years later and they are tighter and stronger.

I'm biased; I flippin' love Flipper. I was excited as all hell when this DVD was released.

For me, these live performances demonstrate how free Flipper was; they didn't care. They just played their damn instruments. They sang, screamed, growled their words. They would even let an occasional audience member sing. Why not? It's music, and music should be about the freedom of personal expression.

If you don't like Flipper, you'll hate this DVD. If you like Flipper, you'll love this collection of performances.

A lot of folks could say that what is contained on this DVD is talentless crap. I say: Flipper was and is music. Flipper was free of the musical industry constraints -- even from the punk constraints of what was acceptable and marketable.

Flipper rules!

I was actually at this show, and many others. It's not for Elton John or Brittany fans and we accept your hate and wear it like a badge. It was, as had been said before, the real thing. Not generally well accepted but many A-list bands loved them and consider them idols. (I won't name, names but most of the lamest of you probably have a few of their albums). That shouldn't surprise you, if you have that kind of talent, how could you not love them and seek inspiration from them? So, if you don't like them...well...maybe being your own artist just isn't for you. Perhaps you should just copy Madonna (oops, Lady Gaga has that one covered). I know! You should try a national Karaoke event...I hear American Idol is always looking for people who totally suck....at least it seems that way whenever I tune in...Much love Ted and you're as good on that axe as ever, heard ya fairly recently, your hair may be long and gray, but you're still the greatest. Just sayin'

If you're a Flipper fan you must own this DVD!! - two gigs from the early day's - every song is great in it's own way - of course the band is messy but that's what makes Flipper so damn good! - my personal pic's have to be "Shine" and "Life" both with the late great Will Shatter on vocals. This DVD is 10/10
