Flipperstomp is a production team consisting of three penguins - Ricky D, Pomfret Hodgson and Oliver Levine. Before they started a career as producers they were widely-known for their hit album, Lunchtime in Antarctica, and the writers of many popular songs in the USA; one of them being Take The Short Way Back. The band then decided to split after two of the five members left, but the remaining three decided to do something new but still stay in the music scene. They were active as a band from 1990 to 2003, then split. The three members - Ricky, Pomfret and Oliver - took a three-year break as they expanded their production skills, and have been producing for others since 2006, with the likes of Nevim, Cadence and Meaghan.
1990-1991: Early years
Ricky D and Pomfret Hodgson formed Flipperstomp back in early 1990. Although their first album, Flipperstomp, wasn't very successful, with effort, their music gradually made its way to the top over the next few years.
1992-1994: Lunchtime in Antarctica
The band reached its peak when they produced the album, Lunchtime in Antarctica. Out of this album, three hit singles spawned out. It has since sold over 15 million copies worldwide. Hodgson had quit the band a few years after their tour for their most recent album, Famous Few Words. In an attempt to bring him back, Ricky epically failed, and Hodgson was never heard from again. Trying to reform, Ricky brought back some of the older members, plus many new musicians. After many more songs, another attempt to reform was tryed, including Pomfret, still epically failing.
