Flipper: Album Generic Flipper (Subterranean)

Barney Hoskyns, New Musical Express, May 1982

A FIRST song, 'The Way Of The World', opens like Hawkwind's 'Silver Machine', and Album G.F. never really lets go from there on in. Flipper are so good it's irresponsible to get sober about them. As they say in their liner suggestions, "NO MATTER HOW FUCKED UP YOU ARE, YOU ARE NOT TOO FUCKED TO GET FUCKED (UP)". This is sense at work, and I'm not even all-American!
