It seems this experience has totally renewed my enjoyment of all that other Flaming Lips stuff that I play in the daytime
Why would we make this music that is The Terror – this bleak, disturbing, hopeless record…?? I don’t really want to know the answer that I think is coming: that WE were hopeless WE were disturbed (but we didn’t have a longing to NOT be disturbed) and, I think, accepting that some things are hopeless…or letting hope in one area die so that hope can start to live in another?? Maybe this is the beginning of the answer.
Sometimes, the concept is enough in itself.
They seem like hipsters to me (without any added pejorative). Would that be correct?
