A message from Krist ...

As reported here earlier, the reunited punk legends Flipper recently embarked on a short tour with Krist Novoselic on bass. I had the pleasure of checking out one of their shows, headlined by The Melvins with Big Business.

The band played an amazing set, featuring classics such as "Sex Bomb", "Way of the World" and "Sacrifice" - the latter featuring Dale Crover and Buzz Osbourne of The Melvins as well as Coady Williams of Big Business (three drummers on stage! - albeit Dale Crover was only playing the cymbals).

Needless to say, it was amazing to see Krist, Dale and Buzz play together on stage, not to mention original members of Flipper; Bruce Loose, Ted Falconi & Steve DePace.

After the show, I was lucky enough to meet the bands and talk with everyone for a short while, including Krist Novoselic. He was kind enough to write a little greeting for the NFC visitors (see picture in the upper right corner). Thanks to Flipper, The Melvins, Big Business and everyone else for a great show and a great experience!
