And the winner of the South Region Battle of The Bands is...

The executive committee of On The Flip-Side finally drew a quorum in this busy holiday season and voted on the winners of the Battle Of The Garage Bands for the South Region. The top three were a unanimous decision with The Bad Roads of Louisiana taking the coveted top prize. The Tasmanians of Florida and the Swinging Machine of Virginia stand on the podium on either side with their medals in hand. Just off the podium were The Clockwork Orange of Kentucky and The Nomads of North Carolina.

The Bad Roads will now represent The South and join The Squires from the New England region, The Blues Magoos from New York and the Mid-Atlantic region champions, The Enfields, as they all wait in the green room for the next region's winner.

And what region is that, you ask? Well, look at the map below at that horrific green color. We are traveling to The Great Lakes region next. For our purposes that will include Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin. This is sure to be a region chock-full-O-wonderfulness.
Until next time, we'll see you On The Flip-Side!


  1. I was wondering why you used to types of players for the music you post. One allows you to download the song while the other either doesn't. or I can't figure out how to use it. I love your work. Please keep up your efforts, they are appreciated.

    1. Well, it's the bane of my flippy existence. I tried Divshare but it can't be played on a mobile device. So I switched to Soundcloud which is excellent except they have random and unpredictable copyright rules. They also only allow me to have a tiny bit of bandwidth. Then we switched to Clyp. That was the bomb. Then the site went down and took everything with it. The site never came back. So I quickly sought out an alternative with is Mixcould which is decent but doesn't allow downloads due to copyright issues. I'm still searching so if you know of a good HTML5 based music streamer that allows downloads and can play on mobile devices, please, please, please let me know.
