The Flipsides: The Best Of Times

If you were big on punk from the San Francisco Bay Area during the early & middle 2000, then chances are you might have heard of The Flipsides. This pop punk 3 piece had their first gig on Christmas Eve of 1999 and released their debut record, Clever One, back in 2002. The trio is made of frontwoman and guitarist, Sabrina Stewart; Mark Bradin on bass and Jim Lindsay on drums. The Best Of Times, is a five-track compilation that's best described by Sabrina as an "abridged version" of her adolescence since most of it were written before she was still in the band. It contains short but punchy tracks that blares with energy and meant to be enjoyed loud.

The Slizzies: Slizzies Going Steady

The Slizzies came about on a whim. When they first got together, only one of the members had actually played an instrument in their lifetime. Despite this complete handicap, that didn't stop the guys from agreeing to form a band. The succeeding times wasn't easy. From gathering for band practice, to actually learning to play for much of the group and of course, exiting band members; it was certainly a joyride. In the end, the succeeding members actually managed to record a couple of original tracks in true diy fashion. These tracks were recorded from various live performances and rough studio sessions. Hence, don't expect awesome quality but do expect some great punk tracks coming your way.
