Premiere: Black Flamingos, ‘Devil’s Punchbowl’


We are incredibly stoked and honored to premiere the brand new single from the three-piece surf super group Black Flamingos.

The song is majestically awesome “Devil’s Punch Bowl” off their brand new EP which will be released this fall on the bad ass Asbury record label Little Dickman Records.


The dudes of the ‘gos are no strangers to the scene – they are comprised of of Robbie Butkowski (Plato Zorba), Vincent Minervino (The Brigantines), and Declan O’Connel (Brother Valient). Black Flamingos’ style “is infectiously groovy and fine-tuned, as masterful musicianship is blended with surreal hooks and tight rhythms.”

In the words of’s Jim Appio, after seeing the Flamingos’ live set, “even though the band claimed just to be jamming and having fun, they pretty much blew me away.”

Black Flamingos are deeply entrenched in AP’s robust Music music community, in fact Vincent Minervino is the brains behind the Asbury Park Surf Music Festival, which Pop-Break proudly sponsors.

Black Flamingos’ EP will be released on CD on October 16, 2015 and digitally worldwide via Little Dickman Records and feature 6 tracks listed here:

Flamingo from the Black Lagoon
Cock Grease
Devil’s Punchbowl
Shark Repellant
