Here we have an interesting item that surfaced recently. This is a 1998 Various Artists compilation that was released by "Angel Beach Records" and distributed by Snyder Drugstores. All proceeds from the sale of this release were to be directed to "families living and loving through Alzheimers Disease." Somehow, in a decision that might be considered by some to be in questionable taste, the Flipp track "Schizo Boy" was chosen to be included among the songs on this compilation.

Brynn Arens / Cherry Forever/ Kilo Bale/ Mike Leonard

Unfortunately, Chia Karaoke was unable to make the show due to a prior commitment in Los Angeles. New guitarist Mike Leonard more than held his own, blending seamlessly into the band in his second show with them. And - in a very cool twist - bassist Freaky Useless WAS able to make it to the show after speeding in from playing a Hairball show someplace a bit earlier in the evening. He guested in on a few songs with the band nearing the end of their set and all five of the guys looked to be having a total blast on that stage. This was a first in Flipp history as Cherry and Freaky, the two bassists, had never actually shared the stage together prior to this.
