The debut (self-titled) album from Melbourne band Flap! is a stimulating change for those listeners looking for something a little different. You'd call it a jazz album if it weren't so fun, and although you'd never mistake it for a pop album (there's not a hint of the electronic anywhere) the listener cannot but help feel that somehow this music has all the elements of the popular. The lyrics are inspired: stories of falling off cliffs, being poor, getting naked, and the universal themes of death, love, and drunkenness are treated with a joyful anarchic hope.

Recorded by C.W. Stoneking's musical director (Steve Grant) at Fitzroy's famous Adelphia Studios the album also features guest performances from many of Melbourne's finest musicians (Nigel MacLean, Paul Williamson, Chris Tanner). From the happily skeletal sounds of the xylophone on the opening track 'Down, Down, Down' to the bombastic Gypsy brass inspired finale 'Tetris', the album features original music that is both old and new, inspired by the entire human diaspora. Whilst the vocals are unabashedly Australian in their timbre, influences from 1920's jazz, English Folk and Trinidadian Calypso can be heard peeping through.
