V/A - 'Flipside Vinyl Fanzine' Compilations

Another classic and important fanzine was Flipside.They released 3 'Vinyl Fanzines' between 1984 - 1987. 



Volume 1 was released in 1984 and is, in my opinion, the best by far. Punk luminaries such as Government Issue, The Freeze, Scream, G.B.H. and Black Market Baby are included. Great stuff.







Volume 2 was also released in '84. It had an equally impressive lineup which included the Necros, Germs and the Misfits.







Volume 3 was released in '87. Although the stellar lineup is here as well (7Seconds, C.O.C., Circle Jerks) most of it just seems to fall flat. Not a horrible compilation by any means, tho.

  2. Hi there, Mr Drunk!

    I'm on a white whale hunt for the Copulation band (they play the ninth music in Volume III), a mid 80s swiss punk band. Do you by any chance have any files of their "Copvlation" album? It would be so great. Very bizarrely they seem to be strangers to the www and the peer-to-peer dimension... ;)

    My best, Carlos

    1. Haven't heard of that one, but I'll keep looking. It's always fun to search for the term 'Copulation'!

    2. Wow! I've been searching high an low for these! I had them many years ago but lost track of them. Is there any way I could convince you to upload them again and provide a link? I would gladly resort to begging and bowing if needed.

    3. I'll try to get them re-upped this weekend. Begging is never necessary, but bowing is always appreciated!

      They have another album that I found on soulseek, but this one remains under the radars... If you by any chance run into it please share the wealth. ;)

      Oh, you should try and add "begging" and "bowing" to the "copulation" search... i'm sure you won't regret it. :D

      Happy New 2014 to you all!

    8. I've looked high and low for anything by Copulation myself. Some day.... Have all three on vinyl plus the CD reissue of the series (which isn't complete, but still worth having)
