Flipron are a psychedelic pop band from Glastonbury, England, consisting of singer and songwriter Jesse Budd, pianist/organist Joe Atkinson, drummer Mike Chitty and bassist Tom Granville.
Their ramshackle barrelhouse Britpop, a sharp-witted, Kinksy English blues with a unique lyrical adventurousness, has been championed by the likes of Jonathan Ross, Mark Lamarr, Frank Skinner, Steve Lamacq & Tom Robinson amongst others. It has been said that they may well be the greatest band never to be deemed the greatest band in the world.
Their stabs of psychedelic organ, twangy surf guitar, honky-tonk piano, lap steel, mandolin, accordion, harmonica & pounding rhythm section have taken them from their Glastonbury hometown to stages across the USA & Europe as well as all over the UK.

“…mixing Hanna Barbera with Tim Burton, you'll struggle to find a group as fascinating as Flipron. Don’t hail, just succumb to the most original band in the UK." - Music OMH.com
