Flaming Lips


It has been a pretty Good Friday for us, and we hope you have had an amazing day and will continue to enjoy the weather for the rest of the weekend. This evening we brought you music from TV on the Radio after the tragic news of Gerard Smith's passing, Brian Eno with the announcement of his new material, and of course The Flaming Lips after their new material emerged from the brain of a gummy skull. Confused? this will help you out.


This week we were delighted to welcome blogs My Band's Better Than Your Band and We Are SME into 6 Music, and we hope you enjoyed their recommended tracks from Bos Angeles and XV respectively.

#Listener's Mix - from Stu Deadbill

Marvin Gaye - Inner City Blues: "What's Going On is possibly the greatest piece of complete music ever to be released. There's a vibe on Inner City Blues that makes you feel meloncholic but uplifted at the same time."

The Skids - The Saints are Coming: "Pure punk energy of Dunfermline's finest still makes me want to pogo on my bed like i'm 13 again."

The Who - Happy Jack: "When everyone was going for the hippy moment and flowers in their hair, four blokes from West London stick two fingers up to all that."

CAN - Vitamin C: "It's funk but not as we know it,and it has the most fantastic drumming."

Paul Weller - Into Tomorrow: "I love Weller. In fact my wife has accused me of loving him more than her at times which is a bit harsh but fair."

808 State - Pacific: "Memories of being immersed in the whole house/Madchester stuff and this sublime piece of music whenever i hear it still puts me back in a sweaty warehouse in Hackney."
