October 2013
Grump, the new solo album by Jeff Mansk (Flipping the Pig lead singer) is streaming at the new facebook page,

10 songs custom-made for cold and/or rainy days, inside and outside. While mostly acoustic, it's not your standard singer/songwriter thing. Moody, wistful, and, regardless or whatever weirdness and creepiness, always hopeful. Head over to CDBaby (the best deal for the entire album), iTunes, Amazon, and so on. Share, tell friends, post things, and I will be forever thankful.

"Refreshingly different from a lot of stuff that's out there." - Past and Present

"I'm amazed by (Flipping the Pig's) one-man show, and I love his imaginative style and tongue-in-cheek approach. I'll be eager to hear more from this delightfully unorthodox act soon."

"Ranging from soulful acoustic rock to the type of apartment rock that is often labeled "genius"...there are times when you feel almost reassured that there's more than one person behind this madness; perhaps he's suffering from a mental disorder" - Smother.net

"It's been quite a while since anything this diverse has come across my desk. This is thinking out of box both lyrically and musically speaking...It's a mixed bag of anything a little heady, mystifying, or all out strange and eerie." - Muen Magazine

"Because he jumps stylistically between each song it is difficult to pinpoint or pigeonhole Flipping The Pig. The jumps feel natural, even welcome, like you're meeting different characters to a greater story" - James Curtis, special to NewsLink

"Nothing like a Bipolar genius to catch my ear." - Ed, New York

"Your one-stop-pop-shop-songster. So many influences, yet a sound that merges said influences into his own" - Mike, St. Louis

Flipping The Pig was referenced in Speigel Online (Germany's leading music resource) in an article about Radiohead. The album, Giving It To Myself, was listed alongside Wilco and The Beastie Boys as one of 7 notable free album downloads worldwide!

As one of the several ways to hear the music I've made (the others include: pay for them on iTunes or Amazon, and listen to a CD), I've added the option of downloading free zipped mp3 files of several of the albums. Why? Because. Just click here and take 'em. This would have been presented in a much fancier way if my computer hadn't crashed and I wasn't fumbling through updates via html edits.

If you like what you hear, or for another reason are inspired, please feel free to make a donation. By "donation" I mean "pay me." Every bit is appreciated and helps with the costs of doing all this wonderful crap.
