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.
