Flipper DVD Release

The Flipper DVD contains two live shows from the early 1980's. The first is from Berkeley, CA where they spent a few weekdays playing for friends and fans at the Berkeley Square. The second show is their set opening for Throbbing Gristle's last show at Kezar Stadium, San Francisco, CA.

So you get a club show and a stadium show all on one DVD. How great is that, OK?
