The Flaming Lips "Gates of Steel" (Devo cover) (video)
Published Jul 22, 2013Head-scratching psych crew the Flaming Lips are saluting the grandaddies of odd pop, Devo, with a new cover of the band's "Gates of Steel."
The Lips' upend the manic new wave pace of the Freedom of Choice cut, offering instead the prismatic psychedelic shimmer of textured organ taps, daintily distorted guitar licks and the slow-mo yelps of Wayne Coyne. As you'll see in the video down below, it's a hit with a group of sparkle-covered kids.
