Product Notes

Recorded early in 1995, TEX is the debut album by flapping, Flapping, FLAPPING (later trimmed to just flapping, Flapping), a polyglotted rock band which swerves over the landscape of Beatle-esquerie and stops at odd places along the path towards... what? Apocalyptic bubblegum? Tom Lackner, Rob Taylor, Bruce Winter, Joe Woodard are the band, and special guests and assorted noises contibute to the sum effect. Press Bites: '...in their capable hands, flapping is not sloppy. It's four creative people jamming on top of a solid base of musical talent and inventive, push-the-envelope songwriting. The band is indulgent, but these indiscretions are always forgivable...the album warrants attention. It embodies the pop experimentalism and hooks of Sgt. Pepper with an ironic approach of anti-pop pop performers like Pavement and Liz Phair, and has layers that open up with repeated listening...What makes this disc truly worth spinning...is it's reigning sense of musical intelligence and maturity of lyric, qualities which are laid nicely in a nest of cheeky good humor and backed with truly kick-ass rock instrumentation.' --Russ Spencer, Santa Barbara Independent 'Eccentric and fiercely eclectic, the Santa Barbara quartet known as flapping, Flapping, FLAPPING leaves a lasting first impression on it's just-released debut recording, TEX. The independently-produced disc features 13 tracks that run the gamut from skewed, introspective balladry to quirky alternative rock and atmospheric pop. And though the band boasts three lead vocalists, there is a uniformity to the sound that keeps the proceedings from seeming disjointed.' --Bruce Britt, Ventura Star.
