Out of assorted musical alliances in the mid-‘90s music scene in Santa Barbara, with a nutty name supplied by Erica Ruhl, flapping, Flapping, FLAPPING was born, being Tom Lackner, Bruce Winter, Rob Taylor and Joe Woodard. They released the album “TEX” on Household Ink Records in 1995, and then, after Glen Phillips joined the band, replacing Taylor, the album “Montgomery Street,” in 1996. After long and winding work, the long-awaited third album, “seeyoutonight,” is soon to be finished, now with Lackner and Woodard at the epicenter, joined by a rotational crop of musicians.
