Flipron live concert
Flipron are an English rock band from Glastonbury, UK. Their music was described by Music Connection (USA based music industry magazine) as “Barrelhouse Britpop” which the band thought was a pretty good description. Other descriptions they like include “Psychedelic Honkytonk” & “like Stephen Fry wrestling with Ian Dury on a Mississippi riverboat” A more sober description was “eccentric English rock”, which is reasonably accurate if a little formal. Their songs are noted for their strong & wordy lyrical content.
Their main influences include The Kinks & Small Faces, Alex Harvey, Sparks, Madness, The Specials, Ziggy-era Bowie, The Damned, Ian Dury, Tom Waits, early Pink Floyd, Syd Barrett, old Hawaiian & blues records, Hank Williams, western swing, 20s 30s & 40s Americana & jazz, & mid-60s psychedelia, surf & garage.
