Nights At The Roundtable - The Flaming Lips In Session - 1992

Nights at the Roundtable with The Flaming Lips in session at The BBC. Recorded October 13, 1992.

<strong>The Flaming Lips in 1992 - If Oklahoma never produced anything else, this would keep them in the plus column forever.</strong>

One of my favorites this week. The Flaming Lips, recorded in session at The BBC for the John Peel Program on October 13, 1992.

As one of the truly pioneering Experimental/Alternative bands to come out of the U.S. in the 90's, Flaming Lips have, fortunately, never really been embraced by the mainstream. Thank God.

And probably for that reason their music has maintained a vitality and freshness in the 20+ years they've been together. As is evidenced by this session, recorded 20 years ago.

There are bands you know will be discovered for years and decades to come, and their music will be played and wondered about and examined and dissected for its sheer uniqueness and unbending point of view. The Flaming Lips are one of those bands. I predict. You heard it here first. Check back here in fifty years and see if I was right.

But for now - here's the lineup:

1. Hit Me Like You Did The First Time

3. The Sun
