The Flaming Lips: Vote Labia!

Keith Cameron, New Musical Express, 17 February 1996

Twelve years and seven albums down the line and only now are Oklahomans THE FLAMING LIPS making their presence felt. At last we can let our ears chomp on their tasty musical stew of Beatles grooviness, gonzoid metal and swoonsome Beach Boys melodies. KEITH CAMERON meets lead Lip WAYNE COYNE and his labial chums, and discusses madness, "dumbing down" and the meaning of true happiness. Aah!
