Flipside Record U-Boats Attack America

This is the last entered record from the original CATALOG. I did edit it some and pulled forth the time and place in our punk history. Everything seems old now but at the time of this CATALOG it was on the cutting edge. It was exciting to be corresponding with so many bands. To offer them a way to get their music out into the rotten world and make it better. That is how I saw it then.

Then our newest album from Germany “U-Boats Attack America,” featuring Blunt + Isen, Razia, Neurotic Arseholes, Torpedo Moskau, Daily Terror, Upright Citizens, Cretins. Support the international German punk scene!!!

Future albums to come your way are: Detox II, GASH/ Depression from Australia and Vinyl Fanzine number three. Not available until August.

Flipside Record Six

Anti Scrunti Faction were a queercore punk trio from Boulder, Colorado.

It is amazing to think back and realize how regular mail correspondence through the US Postal service was the spine of the Punk Rock movement.  I can say I was a punk rock correspondent entrepreneur. This is how I met Leslie Mah and Tracie Thomas of A.S.F. During the punk scene of the 1980s, tapes and correspondence were part of our lives and I was taken by the gals of A.S.F., mostly because women were not a big staple of the scene we had grown to know. I made it happen and we put out their record. Women, punk rock, politics, sexuality, racism, and abounding creativity is the loud heartfelt sarcasm that emanates from this band. I remember making vegetarian spaghetti in our kitchen with Leslie. Taking Leslie and Tracie to the beach was a real treat. I got my first tattoos with the A.S.F. girls. A contrary experience for me because at the same time we were working with the bands Doggy Style and Detox. Some of my best memories of co-running a fanzine.  Leslie Mah and Tracie Thomas went on to have an interesting life creatively and I am happy for them. Look them up you may be surprised.

Flipside Record Five : Vicious Circle and Perdition the Australian Way.

I learned about, and how to say, the Australian term fair dinkum (Truly, honestly.) Also, to put mayonnaise and BBQ potato chips on a French bread sandwich as purely delicious. We silk-screened art projects in our garage, and I had fun being house mother. The super-duper days in the punk house at Flipside Fanzine central in good old Whittier California.

Flipside Record Five

This is a two-band compilation featuring two of Australia’s hardest hitting and most well-known bands: Vicious Circle and Perdition. Perdition comes off as a very infectious, almost British sounding punk band. They have compiled the best tracks off all their releases here, Fight songs here! “I’m Laughing,” “Just One Mistake,” “Degeneration,” “Progress Where,” “Big Problems,” “Nothing for You,” “Deserve to Die,” and “New Anarchy.” Vicious Circle grace the flipside with 11 fast paced hard hitting thrashing tunes. These are compiled from their Australian single release. “Search for the Solution,” and some songs recorded just for this project. Tracks include” “Epitaph,” “Supplied Demise,” “Distant Cry,” “Right Dub,” “Claws of Death,” “Corp Death Scheme,” and others. Comes with lyrics and information sheet.

Doggy Style Flip by Side Number 4

It’s for your bored/ excited non-skating/ friend/gf/ bf/ mom/ dad/ dog you’ve … A style of pushing where the back foot is kept on the board and pushing is done with the front foot.

Doggy Style started with original singer Brad Xavier, Ed “Shaggy” Caudill, Ray Jimenez, and Lou Gaez.

“One of my favorite memories is when
three Flipside bands, Detox, Anti-Scrunti
Faction (ASF), and Doggy Style came by the
house one summer day. I wish I had taken
pictures that day. It was crazy and trying to
keep up with three bands and all their
demanding personalities was extremely
extreme. Detox had roots deep in the punk
scene. Steve Human was once bass player for
the Vandals. ASF was a gay girl band, with a
male drummer, from Colorado. Doggy Style
came from the infamous Fullerton suburbia
where old friends Social Distortion came
from. Having Doggy Style and ASF in the
same room was like oil in water. I think
Doggy Style freaked when they caught ASF
carpet munching in an alley near a local show.
Overall, Doggy Style was a very obnoxious
band to deal with. They were a bunch of fun
idiots and talented suburban adolescents who
liked to do it doggy style.
Al and Gus put out Doggy Style’s
record and liked to hang out with them. I put
up with them. Joy did the artwork for their
promotional green vinyl record. Now that was
cool.”

~ Excerpt From My Punkalullaby, The Seminary of Praying Mantis by Hudley Flipside

{From Original Los Angeles Flipside Fanzine CATALOG 1980s}

This is the Doggy Boyz with their debut LP titles “Side by Side.” It is a classic in its own way. With it you will learn about the sexual revolution with songs like “Be Strong” and “Side by Side,” “Still Hope,” “Nympho,” “Straight,” “Bite the Bone,” “Donut Shop Rock,” “Enough,” “Ladies from Neptune,” “Rookie Cop,” “Danial,” and “Skate Party.” As you can tell there is a variety of subject matter here, not all “Sexual,” but a lot of “edge” lyrics and some good old fashion jamming punk funk bubble gumian hardcore punk rock fun. How are you going to do it? Do it doggy style, do it doggy style… also available on cassette wherever better records are sold!

Flipside Record 3

The ICONOCLAST is part of the past and has moved into the future as a comparative voice. Extremely appropriate for our current world. It was a real turn on to release their music in the 1980s.

(As written from the original CATALOG)

Our third record is a single by The ICONOCLAST a Peace punk band based in L.A. There are four songs on this single. “In These Times” is a gloomy but promising song. Almost the type of song Jesus the Christ might have sung when he was born into this loveless world, and knowing his fate through his sacrifice, saying “Give the Children One More Day.” The other three songs are faster, 100 mph. The other songs on this EP are “Prisoners of Existence,” “Battlefields” and “Things of Beauty.” Also included is an information packed ‘lyric and thought’ sheet.

Flipside Vinyl Fanzine 2 … I’ m Shakin’ All Over

Hey original John Crawford Artwork on the back cover. Revolutionary Fetus says

“Support Flipside Vinyl Fanzine # 2 or face a bleak and unlivable future.”

Hattie Jacques  plays Nanette Parry from film Make Mine Mink (1960)

Again, from the original Flipside “CATALOG.” As written at that place and time in history by yours truly. I don’t know why I excluded Flipside Vinyl Fanzine Number One, maybe at the time we ran out of them for sale. Yet I will include it later in my gathering of Intellectual Property … my journey to bring together what was lost on the internet wasteland. (If only symbolically)

A friendly gesture to remember what seems vague in my senior years. Thank you for indulging my fiery drive. As Emma Jung, wife of Swiss psychologist and psychiatrist Carl Jung, said and I paraphrase, “Sometimes a dame has got to do something for herself that no one else fucking understands, who cares cause she knows why she is doing it… for her own soul.” There now that feels better. I am just in the gathering phase. I call it Phase A.

Included below is some remarkable history about the process of creating this Vinyl Fanzine. Many hands in the cookie Jar. Heartfelt Thanks!!

As many of the upcoming bands, Los Angeles Flipside Fanzine collaborated with Bill Bartell of Gasatanka Records and Chaz of Casbah Recording Studio. I have included a bit of history and information below.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casbah_Recording_Studio

“Chaz”, as he was known to most, was guitarist for Eddie and the Subtitles, a local punk band that was influential on younger Fullerton punks as the Adolescents and Social Distortion, both of which recorded their early demos and singles at Casbah and continued recording albums there as their popularity grew. “I don’t think they shared musical tastes” stated Michael Hutchinson, producer for Billy Idol and Berlin, observing “I don’t know how excited Chaz was about Berlin – he was more excited about punk stuff.” Yet there was an excitement that came from the blending of the two distinct cultures: one typified by Chaz and his cronies’ slacker ethos, the other by St. James and his commercial sensibilities and keen awareness of musical trends. After the success of Stacey Q’s Better Than Heaven, St. James deferred ownership of The Casbah to Ramirez. https://web.archive.org/web/20101020144212/http://www.casbahrecording.com/history.html

Flipside Record One

We at Los Angeles Flipside Fanzine had loads of fun having too many projects while supporting a scene. It was way over my head but being right in the middle I did what I did to help it to flow forward. Words below from the Flipside CATALOG.  

Flipside Recordz

Detox “Start Finish” LP

Our first attempt to put out a full-out album, A real under-ground sound to this album, with a band that has been around the LA scene for quite some time!! Twelve punker tunes sung by good old Dan Forklift. Bass played by Steve (Human of the Vandals,) Tony Malone plays guitar (who featured in the movie “Girls just want to have fun,” he played the guy with green hair playing guitar on a table at some party, remember?) and now ex member Lantz Krantz (Boyfriend of Boom Boom of the Screaming Sirens) on drums. Square dance to “No Reggae in Russia” and slam to “Shoot the Kid,” something for everyone. Oh, Oh , Oh…

Flipside Fanzine Catalog 1980s

I mean, from all the randomly, bloody, ripped apart, images, videos, and stuff from Los Angeles Flipside Fanzine products online…I hope this pulls it together! I originally put this catalog together because that was my job. A special time to have creative fun!


Los Angeles Flipside Fanzine once was on the cutting edge of supporting and documenting a growing punk rock scene.


Let us face it … trees are doing much better now that the printing press is getting competition. The popularity of eBooks over paperback novels is a well-known truth. Great for the trees!! Yet, there was a time, not so long ago, when the Xerox machine was just as revolutionary. I do not want to bore you because all the knowledge you need is on your hand-held device. But not the experience…. I got that until I die over you so go screw!! I see a lot of the old Flipside Fanzine stuff online, all over the place. The shit hit the fan!! Collectors ask me questions which I do not want to answer. So here is the catalog, for a certain time and place, that may help you organize all that free and not so free Flipside shit out there. This is designed by yours truly a long time ago when I still had a period.

Use it, abuse it, print it, and then use it again, delete it or scream at it…. best yet, laughter may be the best medicine…it is for me. It was damn creatively dense back in my punker youthful days, like a star being pulled into a black hole. This was not a theory or based on images or equations but shows what really happened. As a romantic, for me, experience trumps anything and everything… which is why I am surprised this is still around. Enjoy and it will help you put the puzzle together.
