LIPS BACK AFLAME: Having spent a couple of years dressing up as rabbits and touring the Yoshimi set all around the globe, the Flaming Lips are back in the studio working on a new album. This one is going to be tricky for them - Yoshimi bounced them up a league from 'toasts of the underground' to 'even Victoria Newton's heard of them', which means they're heading off heaped up with expectations. New song titles include 'Space Bible' and 'Mr. Ambulance Driver', which is what you'd expect them to be called, really. They're making good use of the time off they've got from the collapse of Lollapalloollappazi.
