I might as well take this opportunity to join in the Flaming Lips lovefest this week. Personally, I'll take anything from In a Priest Driven Ambulance (1990) to Clouds Taste Metallic (1995) over the newer stuff, but they're still one of the most exciting live bands around. They also happen to have an awesome silk-screened poster by local designers Us & Them (www.agraphictranslation.com).
