Tom Waits Meets The Kinks On A Carnival Midway? U.S. Fans Will Find Out in September

Flipron, the British quartet that has been described as "Tom Waits meets The Kinks on a carnival midway," will play their first live dates on this side of the pond when they hit the U.S. in September.

Drawing on diverse musical influences as far-ranging as 1920's Hawaiian Steel guitar rags, laid-back Western Swing, Klezmer stomps and old-time folk ballads, Flipron are known as brilliant wordsmiths and entertaining eccentrics.

Their milieu is classic rock songs that take winding, unexpected turns, as evidenced on the newly-released sampler CD, With Breath Bated And Eyelids Unblinking, which was specially compiled for the U.S. shows with selections from the band's three studio albums.

Before arriving in the U.S., the band will have played several high profile shows in the U.K. this summer, including a 10-date stint at the world-renowned Edinburgh Fringe Festival and an appearance at the prestigious Glastonbury Festival that takes place annually in the band's hometown. Flipron have played the Glastonbury Festival (this year's Festival was attended by over 150,000 people) six years in a row, with 2008 seeing them play a record 10 shows on separate stages at the event.
