Flipper 2008 looks like this:

Novoselic (Nirvana) hopped on board Flipper in 2006 when the band toured Europe with old friends The Melvins and played the Thurston Moore-curated ATP. The band recently finished recorded a batch of new songs with producer Jack Endino. Endino has produced High On Fire, Valient Thorr, Soundgarden, Mudhoney, Nirvana, and most recently, Toxic Holocaust who are touring with Gwar and Kingdom of Sorrow and are playing Irving Plaza on 10/8 (tickets here).
