Flipped Out Kicks to debut at Bald Faced Stag.

Psychelic-punk rockers Flipped Out Kicks will make their long-awaited debut performance at the Bald Faced Stag hotel in Leichhardt on Friday June 7.

The band, which comprises respected local musicians Tim Knuckey (Satellite V, Wet Taxis) and Jonny Gretsch (Wasted Ones), has compiled an eclectic set drawn from little known 1960s classics, featuring plenty of guitar reverb, tremelo and fuzz.

The Flipped Out Kicks set is a veritable “best of” sixties obscurities, covering artists from Captain Beefheart, the 13th Floor Elevators, and Texas punk groups such as Mouse and the Traps and the Zakary Thaks.

“Our aim is to split the atom of rock in a one hour set,” says Lachlan Colquhoun, the bass player and founder of the Flipped Out Kicks.

“There are so many classic – and little known - songs from the period and we’re having a great time in bringing them back to life, and combining them all in what we reckon is power set.”

Flipped Out Kicks will be supported by the Missing Link, who take their inspiration from legendary surf guitarist Link Wray, and original indie band the Lovely Assistants.

To begin the evening, Jonny and Tim’s rockabilly duo The Wheelnuts will warm up the crowd.
