Flipron are one of these totally unique bands...but unique with the right mix of perfect flavours. Their tunes transport you into a quirky, scary, funny and Tim Burton-esque world. Jesse Budd's unusual singing style, that mixes Tom Waits, Syd Barrett and John Lennon, draws you closely into the emotional, poetic and mad tales he tells, of love, loss, gambling, monkeys, grandparents, dogs, hawaii, evil cars, skeletons...as for the sound, think The Doors, Frank Zappa and The Kinks in a blender and you come half close to the magic this band generates.
Flipron are as psychedelic and clever as a pop band band can be while still being pretty and accessible.
Jesse Budd is a unique genius.
For fans of The Beatles, The Doors, Tom Waits, Captain Beefheart, Frank Zappa, Syd Barrett, Cardiacs, The Kinks and Mr Bungle.
