Filly & The Flops

So the legend goes that Felicity Hamer was one day in a changing room stall when she first heard Wanda Jackson. Falling immediately in love she exclaimed loudly “who is this?!”, bought the skirt and set out to find every one of her recordings. It was kismet that she and her friend Eddy Blake Eaton should run into each other at a neighborhood bar the very next night. An accomplished rockabilly bassist, he did in fact have all these recordings and much more for her to listen to. Together they made plans to start a band the very next day. To both their shock and delight, both remembered the plans they had made come morning and a date was set for a first show in a few weeks time. They just needed a band.

Kevin McNeilly thought this all very keen and was next on board. With an otherworldly sensitivity for the subtleties of doowop, he was a shew-in for the position of acoustic guitar and “wop wop-er”. After a brief stint as Rockabilly Filly and The Hammers, a couple electric guitar players, twenty drummers and several car shows later, Filly & the Flops were born. Non fraternal, impaternal, twin brothers Eric Thibodeau (drums) and Gabriel Lambert (electric guitar) completed the quintet. Bringing with them heightened jazz sensibility and a willingness to spend hours on their hair.

In October of 2009 it was suggested by a friend that they record, so they did.

Here it is.
