The Flaming Lips Explain Crazy Dark Floyd Project
"Not that I pay attention to that kind of stuff too much," Drozd said. "But if you go to the iTunes store and look at the reviews of that, there's the Lips fans that love it, but then there's a lot of hardcore, old-school Pink Floyd fans who are thoroughly offended by it. They're just offended. 'If I could give 0 stars, I would! This is sacrilege and blasphemy! Blah blah blah blah blah.' So, yeah, we still get that, you know. I still tell Wayne [Coyne] half his ideas are [expletive] crazy."
Drozd also spoke about the original album that was the touchstone for the project: "Early in high school, hanging around stoners or whatever, you'd inevitably hear Dark Side of the Moon. And for me, the song that I didn't know before I was in high school was "Us and Them," which is probably still my favorite Pink Floyd track. And it's one of those things that they say, 'Throw it in the vaults. We've heard it a million times.' But I can always listen to those songs. I never really get sick of them." -
