One thought on “I Like This: The Flaming Lips Cover “Space Oddity”

  • Alan,

    The Lips also released a completely remixed album version of their Clouds Taste Metallic over the past weekend. They did this highlight the guitar genius of their former guitarist Roland Jones. The audio ratio is about 6 to 1 from the band to guitarist. It also comes with a hand drawn comic.

    Here is a blurb from discogs…

    “Alternate Mix” or “Remix Album” Of Clouds Taste Metallic. This is the full album stripped of Wayne, Steven and Michael’s parts and prominently shows the guitar tracks of ex-Flaming Lips guitarist Ronald Jones. Record Store Day 2016.
