FLEXIPOP DISCOGRAPHY

LISTED BELOW ARE ALL THE FLEX-DISCS ISSUED WITH FLEXIPOP(That I know of)

I may have missed out some different coloured flexi's so if anyone knows of any other coloured flexi's leave a message and send a scan, it would be most appreiciated.

I should think most of the Discs were issued with a hard vinyl test pressing at some stage, I've seen Depeche Mode/Fad Gadget, Haircut 100, The Cure,and of course The Jam.

On the cover of Flexipop it says "Great new track from Blondie plus two songs from Mystery bands, those two bands were -

SNUKY TATE - Tate was a San Francisco punk scene dude, but "Snuky Tate" also served as the band name on his amazing "Who Cares" EP [Blackmouth, 1979] which features the brutal, much bootlegged "Stage Speech." The band on the single backing Tate was pretty much the same lineup as The Mutants. Tate later made more dance oriented stuff, and Reggae.

THE BRATTLES - Was a band of prepubescent punk rockers ages 8 to 12 ( Werner Petrikat's, 12 Guitar,Dagin, 8 drums - Jason, 9 vox - Emerson, 9 bass - Branch, 10 keys,)They opened for the Clash twice, shared a rehearsal room with the New York Dolls and we were produced by Chris Stein of Blondie

FLEXIPOP 015(a) - BLONDIE AND FREDDIE- YULETIDE THROWDOWN - GREEN/BLUE VINYL (ISSUE 25)

The Blondie and Freddie Flexi-Disc was shrinkwraped with issue No.25, it was the same track that featured on Flexipop No.15, but this time it was a single track Flexi without Snuky Tate and The Brattles tracks, Issue No.26 also came with The Bucks Fizz Flexidisc.

FLEXIPOP 021- GENESIS - THE LADY LIES - GREEN VINYL (ISSUE.21)

FLEXIPOP 022 - THE CURE - LAMENT - GREEN/RED VINYL (ISSUE.22)

Possibly the most sought after of the Flexipop Flexi-Dics The Cure's Red Flexidisc going for around £50 which is worth more then the green Cure flexidisc.
