Juvederm Lips Before And After

The Flaming Lips

Filed under: Uncategorized — denisemiller0 @ 7:00 am

My scheduled interview with Steven Drozd of the Flaming Lips didn’t go exactly as planned. For starters, when our telephone conversation was supposed to begin, Drozd was nowhere to be found — a fairly basic oversight that could’ve derailed the interview then and there. Fortunately, it didn’t. Drozd called me back a little later and explained that a radio appearance in Ohio had run way over schedule, and he apologized profusely for not being available at our scheduled time. He was extremely generous during our interview, which lasted much longer than the originally scheduled 20 minutes, over the span of several phone calls. This was a lot more than the guy had to do, so before I go any further, a big round of thanks to Steven Drozd for his patience over the course of this afternoon. clip_image003

Faulty cell phones were a big problem, and the first few minutes of our conversation were lost due to low recording levels. We began by talking about the live presentation of Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots, as the group is winding up their first leg of touring now. Drozd ran down some info about the tour that’s finishing up, stating that each set was only around 53 minutes long, so they were only doing a few songs from Yoshimi…(including “Do You Realize?” and “Fight Test”), a few from The Soft Bulletin with Steven playing live drums, and then a cover (Kylie Minogue’s “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head”) and some other things. He told me about the four giant mirror balls and the people on-stage in animal costumes, before leading into an introduction of their upcoming shows with Beck…

Steven Drozd: Yeah, we’re going to be out there as his band, and play Beck’s songs. It’ll be Beck singing, it’ll be his show, we’ll actually be his band. I think it’s gonna be a pain in the ass (laughs) to try to work it all out, you know, like to actually sort of spend a couple of weeks rehearsing, just to figure out exactly how we’re going to do it. I’ve talked to him a few times but we haven’t actually discussed specifically what songs we’re doing and if he wants to do a production where it sounds a lot like the record, or if we can sort of do other things with the songs. We’re still discussing a lot of things; I’m a little bit stressed out about it, but I think it’ll all work out pretty good.

Splendid: Did he just call you and approach you with that? How did that come about?

Steven Drozd: Yeah, he called — well, his manager called our manager — saying, “Oh, he loves your new record and likes you guys…” We had met him a few times before that anyway, so it seemed like a good idea to try. We talked to him on the phone a few times and it seemed like he’s really excited about it, that’s basically how the idea happened. At first we were just talking to him about it, then next thing you know the shows are getting booked already.

Splendid: And you’re doing an opening set as well?

Steven Drozd: Exactly. And then we’ll be his band. It should be a lot of work, but it’ll be a lot of fun as well.

Splendid: Will there be other people involved who’ve played with him before, like Smokey Hormel, who’s played guitar for him in the past?

Steven Drozd: I don’t know if Smokey will be around, but maybe Joey (Waronker, drums) — that way we can do the real drums, and maybe I’ll play drums on a couple songs and Joey can play some drum kit with me or something. It’s just one of those things we’re going to have to try out. I don’t think Smokey’s around, so we’re still trying to figure out what other musicians we have besides Joey and us, if any. Beck plays guitar and keys himself, but we don’t know how much of that stuff he actually wants to do.
