Flipper to release new record with Krist Novoselic

In a Seattle Weekly article, former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic writes about his experience playing with iconic punk-rockers Flipper for the past two years. “In 2006 Flipper were asked by Thurston Moore to play the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in the U.K. That’s when yours truly was invited to play bass”, says Novoselic. “We followed the gig with a tour of the U.K. and Ireland opening for the Melvins. It was a lot of fun. After the tour, I wanted to keep playing with the fellows, but I didn’t have the desire to be in a nostalgia band. So we started playing new material. There was a spark of inspiration within our group”. With Krist Novoselic on board, Flipper have recorded a new album with Jack Endino, and are currently in the process of mixing. According to Krist, the product will be “a grunge record for the 21st century” and is to be released sometime this year. More here. The band is scheduled to play in Seattle and Tacoma this weekend.

New Krist Novoselic interview by Kurt Danielson (TAD)

Kurt Danielson who played, recorded and toured with TAD just did an interview with Krist Novoselic for the Seattle Music Examiner. In the interview, Krist gives us an update on his activities and some more insight into his career in music of the last few years. As you probably know, Krist joined legendary punk band Flipper a couple of years ago and will be playing shows with them again in June.

An excerpt from the article: “As a tribute to Nirvana, Flipper has been playing a cover of Scentless Apprentice, which is off of In Utero, Nirvana’s last non-compilation studio recording. It’s a bit strange for Krist to be playing a cover of a song for which he wrote the bass-line, but it’s not strange to be playing in Flipper, a band which embraces the kind of cathartic punk ethos that originally heavily influenced both Krist and Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain as well as the Nirvana sound in general.”
