  • Essential flexis

    Right, while I'm on a roll... name those essential funky flexi disks.

    'The Crunch' (Smiths Crisps)
    Those 2 Tartan Beer ones......

    There's more I know if only I could remember

    Them one's that used to come sellotaped to the cover of 'Flexipop' magazine in the Eighties.
    Quality, especially the Bad Manners one.

      I got a great 'crybaby' fx pedal one from 1967 at the weekendbut it's more of a cardboardi to be honest - looks like it was cut out from a mag or something.

        I think john stapleton has a spinning wheel flexi from some sheffield band.

        I know he's got the near mythical wynder k frog flexi!

          Oh gawd. I was meant to be getting an early night...I&#39;ve got loads of these and will get round to cataloguing them for posterity at some stage.

          Off the top off my head, look out for two from Express Dairies:

          &quot;Take advantage of your express milkman&quot; (Ooo-err) Dead straight apart from the lead guitarist who keeps on freaking out alarmingly all over the shop.

          &quot;E&quot;: (I think it was a brand of yoghurt). It goes, &quot;We make E, the way you like it, really like it..E is so easyyyyy, smooth and easy..&quot;

          Advertising records though...Could be an idea for the main site?

            not funky as such, but my favourite flexi ever has to be the EMS promotional record - full of wonderful electronic sounds.

              Is that the one by Bob Rogers, of Sounds Bob Rogers/Frank Skinner Show fame? Another one I haven&#39;t got.......

              I like the Peter Cook Watneys Red Barrel flexi - not funky (not musical at all, actually, apart from a couple of Red Barrel jingles at the end) but funny.

                  Yep Bob Rogers it is.

                  The Post Office Savings Bank one by Christine Holmes rocks along.

                      Is it still possible to get flexis pressed up?

                        Don&#39;t think this is a flexi Serm, well I&#39;m sure mine&#39;s on vinyl proper anyway. Ace record though, might bring it down on Satdee..
                        Let him have the lot for £2.00 - we were only going to throw 'em out anyway...

                          I recall this being discussed some time ago, and I think the conclusion was that there were no plants known that make them anymore..

                              Geeky but does anyone know *how* flexis are pressed - is it the same procedure as vinyl?
