“I Want to Get High But I Don’t Want Brain Damage” (Video)

     

    The Flaming Lips and Lightning Bolt have got a collaborative EP coming out soon, which is being previewed by this video that was made in Wayne Coyne’s home. The meeting of these two bands is certainly intriguing, although “I Want to Get High But I Don’t Want Brain Damage” definitely errs close to the Lips’ sound than it does to that of the Providence-based noise makers. This is likely to only be a curio in the careers of both bands, with Coyne’s Beefheartian vocal oscillating between amusement and annoyance throughout. Thankfully both bands made sure this was a mercifully short cut. The full track listing for the Flaming Lips/Lightning Bolt EP will look like this:
