Flippin' The Bird Download

If you've been reading my posts about my tenure with The Silos, you'll remember me mentioning a collection of live tracks, all recorded during our 1990 US tour, entitled Flippin' The Bird.  In my opinion, this collection exquisitely demonstrates the band's potential as a great rock 'n' roll band. Captured in this collection is a fearless, young, and unbridled group, embracing real rock 'n' roll tossed in with a smattering of country and folk music. The Silos would be one of the first bands to define and represent the Americana genre.

Now you can enjoy it all for yourself here, including the credits, track list, and artwork.  Many thanks to musician and soundman extraordinarie, Joe Cinicci for putting this collection together.
