Berner’s ‘Flag or Fail’ to be re-issued

9pm Records is putting out a re-issue of Geoff Berner’s first album We Shall Not Flag or Fail, We Shall Go On To The End.

Says Berner: “The whole concept of ‘Flag or Fail’ was to make a full, eclectic singer/songwriter album with no bloody guitars on it whatsoever, and to use accordion in place of where the guitar might go. It was a risky experiment, but it worked. Its release signaled the beginning of the period in my life when I’ve earned my living through music alone. This period continues. Knock wood, and thank you for supporting what I’ve been doing.”

Whoah! 9pm has also released Aavikko, Cleaning Women, and Giant Robot.
