When Big Joan Sets Up 14/01/10 – Pink Lips and The Flaming Floyd

Flaming Lips and Stardeath and White Dwarfs - The Dark Side Of The Moon

Flaming Lips and Stardeath and White Dwarfs - The Dark Side Of The Moon

After last week’s snowbound cancellation this week, When Big Joan Sets Up emerged from the frozen wastes of Kippax like a big emerging thing to bring you Oaklahoman psychedelic legends,The Flaming Lips‘ radical reinterpretation of Pink Floyd‘s 1973 gazillion selling opus, Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety.

This fact has led to me and Albert Freeman putting our not inconsiderable heads together to come up with other “classic” LPs that we’d like to see reinterpreted. Above the clamour of “haven’t you sad bastards got anything better to do?” (the answer to which is, he probably has, I definitely haven’t) we came up with the following:

Phosphorescent doing Big Star’s “Third/Sister Lovers”
Sonic Youth doing The Beatles’ “Sgt.Pepper”
and my personal favourite, Napalm Death annihilating Nick Drake’s laugh a minute “Pink Moon”
