Lips Desperately Seeking Pink Floyd


Doing a song-by-song
remake of Dark Side Of The Moon… wait, didn’t Phish already do that?!?


By Blurt Staff


Geez, we’d barely finished posting our exclusive Wayne Coyne
“Words of Wisdom” interview at the site today along with our, ahem, glowing
9-stars-out-of-10 review of the Flaming Lips’ new album Embryonic, when word came down the newswire (okay, technically over
the Internet) that the band’s on to the followup!


According to the Los
Angeles Times
, in a story about last night’s special mini-concert by the
Lips at Hollywood’s
Ricardo Montalban Theater to promote Embryonic, Coyne & Co. “have already recorded a follow-up to Embryonic. The band will
release a track-by-track interpretation of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon in the near future, which it recorded with
Stardeath and the White Dwarfs, a band that features Coyne’s nephew Dennis.”


The Times added
that guesting on the album are Henry Rollins and Peaches (apparently in the
MGMT and Karen O roles of Embryonic
or maybe it’s the other way around!), and that at the moment plans are for the
remake to be an iTunes-only release.
