Flop was a pretty obscure act, except in the Seattle grunge scene. Having two albums on Frontier and one on Epic (all, well, flops) doesn't make for a notable act to me.
They weren't so bad though, really. I liked them a lot better than Mudhoney or the Melvins, and they were at least as good as Green Day, though they obviously weren't as visually presentable (and their lyrics weren't quite as amusing).
Low-quality articles about obscure now-defunct bands don't do any harm really, even with much of the A&R/PR-flack verbiage left in... unless someone's foolish enough to spend significant amounts of money on their material based on a WP article (i.e., without actually listening to it first). Though in this case the buyer might not be all that disappointed.
