TVD Vinyl Giveaways for the Last 33-1/3 Days of Summer!

"In its prime, San Francisco's Flipper was a magnificent, fascinating entity, playing what might have been typical hardcore music at an unsettlingly slow speed: like a 45 slowed down to sub-LP pace, a flawless impression of a downed-out hardcore band. The harsh music lumbers and creaks, oozing feedback all the way. Flipper could be your car on the verge of a total breakdown or your worst hangover nightmare amped up to brain-splitting volume..." to quote Trouser Press.

Find out for yourself in another TVD Vinyl Giveaway for the Last 33-1/3 Days of Summer! In recognition of Flipper's catalog being rereleased on 180 gram vinyl, we've got FOUR LPs to offer you this week: Generic Flipper, Public Flipper Limited, Gone Fishin’ and Sex Bomb Baby!

But that ain't all, as they say. We've got a Flipper t-shirt to toss into the mix and a signed poster by the entire band - which includes the John Hancock from the guy who used to play bass in Nirvana who joined—and left!—Flipper recently.

So, who loves you? We do.

Shout it out loud in the comments where we can hear you clearly, and the best and the brightest will find this Flipper prize package on their doorstep. This 33-1/3 Days of Summer Vinyl Giveaway ends next Monday (9/14) when we'll queue up yet another! Now, get to it!
