Setting off The Flaming Lips
Here’s an interview with The Flaming Lips in Forced Exposure, shortly after the release of their first LP.
They talk about the local Oklahoma scene, why they started a band, and what’ll happen if Sonic Youth decides to cancel playing a show with them.
“We started the band out of boredom.”
“I think the punk thing definitely turned us on…just play and see what happens. Just do it.”
“We want to be the next Beatles. The Beatles better watch out because we are gonna kick their ass.”
