A leetle bit about Couch Flambeau
So, I was home for thanksgiving talking to my sister and something she said reminded me of this great band I used to listen to called Couch Flambeau. They were a great punk band in the funny punk vein like The Dead Milkmen. She had two of their albums. I spent a long time trying to convince her to loan me the albums so I could make CDs of them since I didn’t have my own copies. She didn’t want to let their rare gems out her mitts and finally I gave up. I knew that if I had to wait for her to make CDs of them, it would be another 15 years before I heard them again. When I got back to the hotel, on a whim, I went to CouchFlambeau.com, fully expecting a dead link. What did I find? Not only are they still together and doing shows, but they just re-mastered their Vinyl for CD! As a bonus, their CDs were available through CDBaby which is my favorite independent music outlet on the net. I immediately ordered the discs and I’m happy to report that even after many, many years they are still awesome. The collection, “I Did a Power Slide in the Taco Stand” is worth the $13 for the song “We’ll go through the windshield together” alone!
