This Week's Forced Exposure Wishlist


FLAMING LIPS, THE: LateNightTales CD (ALN 013CD) 16.00
"The Flaming Lips, bona-fide platinum status artists, are the latest in a long line of acclaimed talents to share their music collection with fans on Azuli's celebrated CD series 'LateNightTales'. Compiled by the trio, LateNightTales is the perfect representation of what The Lips listen to, kicking back at home in Oklahoma City. The Flaming Lips' infamous version of The White Stripes 'Seven Nation Army' -- which has been eagerly sought after across the worldwide web since the group performed it live at the Hammersmith Apollo late last year -- is featured as an exclusive on this comp. Playfully dubbed 'Harry Potter's and George W. Bush's Severed Head Arm Mix,' the wacky rendition takes sideswipes at anyone in range with febrile Lips-ian logic. Also featuring songs by Bjork, Miles Davis, Radiohead, 10cc, Nick Drake, Brian Eno, Aphex Twin, The Chemical Brothers, and many more."
