The Flaming Lips
“We longed to have no control of our lives...”
Survival is reinvention. Adaptations can be small or major, the world of entertainment demands of artists “evolve, die, or prepare your Vegas residency and retirement tour.”
What to do when you're 30 years deep into a career that has generated 3 Grammy Awards, constant critical plaudits, a rabid, dedicated fanbase, and a fair share of head scratching, invigorating moments? If iconic psych-rock crusaders The Flaming Lips serve as a measuring stick, the answer is: Keep pushing, commit to the strange, the ethereal, the otherworldly, and let the spirits guide you in your quest for meaning.
“And so, maybe when we are immersed in chaos for too long, we long for stability or control. And maybe when we have control for too long, we have a desire for chaos. Or maybe we are just hungry worms…”
Lips band leader Wayne Coyne readily describes the band's latest album–aptly titled The Terror, words that loosely recall the dying gasps of another maverick, Colonel Kurtz in Apocalypse Now–as a “bleak, disturbing record,” born out of the singer's split from his partner of the last 25 years. The Terror is a new stage in the life of an aging, ever-inventive band, an exploration of the notion that “we know now, that even without love, life goes on…”
