The Flaming Lips: at war with the mundane
On stands November 02, 2005

 

FILTER Issue 18

Join us on the high seas with our favorite band of biker pirates, the extraordinaray Flaming Lips. Wayne Coyne and Co. take Filter on a heady trip through their 23 years of being "At War with the Mundane." Upon returning to dry land, we sit down with the Strokes for a first look at their truly new new record, chat with Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst about life on the road, explore the roots of Jamrock with Damian Marley, and discuss the future of our warring world with Burt Bacharach and Rufus Wainwright. Also: Steve Buscemi, the Rakes, Max Headroom, a first look at the new Cat Power record, and an essay from Art Brut's Eddie Argos.
