There is no greater rock'n'roll talk show than WBEZ radio's Sound Opinions, hosted by the Siskel and Ebert of music Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot. This week, Jim joins host Jeremy Dylan to chat about the band he literally (in the traditional non-ironic sense of the world) wrote the book on - The Flaming Lips, and their 1995 album "Clouds Taste Metallic".
They talk about how the band's career paralells their psychadelic-rock forebears Pink Floyd, the unique contributions of guitarist Ronald Jones, frontman Wayne Coyne's hangups about his lack of formal education, Jim's experiences being in the studio while the album was made, Coyne's latter day affinity for Miley Cyrus and why Jim thinks the band has lost his way.
Is there an Eno reference? Stick to the end to find out.
