FLAMING LIPS - Telepathic Surgery 2LP
The Flaming Lips were building up a head of steam at the end of the 1980’s, but the band’s mainstream breakthrough was still a good few years off. As such, the LPs from this period see the Lips indulging both their love of classic rock acts like Pink Floyd and the experimental tendencies they inherited from … Pink Floyd. Case in point: 1989’s Telepathic Surgery, a record that has a fair heft of Pink Floyd to it. Proggy freakouts, sound collages, songs called ‘Hari-Krishna Stomp Wagon (Fuck Led Zeppelin)’, that sort of thing.
