FLIPRON Gravity Calling Tiny Dog Records (2008)

It's only Englishmen who can be mad as wasps yet brilliant at the same time. And, fresh from six eccentric performances at Glastonbury, Fliptron release their third album - Gravity Calling.

If you know anything about Fliptron - an act who draw on musical influences as wide as 1920's Hawaiian Steel guitar rags, 30's Klezmer stomps, Chicago Blues, classic French Chanson, laid-back Western Swing, old time Folk ballads, Bollywood torch songs and 60's British pyschedelia as well as pop eccentrics such as Ray Davies, Syd Barrett, Alex Harvey, Ian Dury, and The Specials - you'll know never to know what to expect.

And adding an extra sprinkle of madness to the mix, that well-known Looney Tune Rat Scabies is lounging comfortably in the production seat.

Accomplished, unique and measured madness. Bonzo's for the current generation of festival goers, but an experience that is probably best experienced live.
