HOT METRO FINDS: Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds – FLAMING LIPS – RIOT FEST 2014
THE FLAMING LIPS – w/ Moby and Miley Cyrus
Ive seen bands cover the Beatles – Sgt Peppers before and they do a so so job. Even XTC
did some Beatle songs that were just OK, (Off the Fuzzy Warbles records) and they were
little more than direct copies.
Wayne Coyne puts his own spin on it and its got a futuristic sound — his pauses are pretty
serious and so is his use of amplified.. pixie dust? Whatever that magical stuff is it is cranked
up to the Nth degree… and Miley’s voice is curious and lures us into the middle of a
Super Nova… and we go willingly…. what a track !!
