The Flaming Lips

Wayne Coyne and Mike Mettler of SoundBard groove on vinyl
by MikeMettler

Wayne Coyne and founder of soundbard.com Mike Mettler (hey, that's me) discuss "You Are Alone," the song that opens Side C of the 2 LP set of The Terror. Notes Coyne, "it consists of a strange emotional chord that was the true spark for the album."

Coyne and I were in the Lips' dressing room at the Wellmont Theater in Montclair, New Jersey right after soundcheck on May 16, 2013, and, inevitably, our discussion turned to collecting vinyl and how to store it all before it completely overruns our respective households. "Wasn't it Charles Bukowksi who said, 'Find what you love and let it kill you'?" Coyne wondered. "That's pretty much what we're doing, right? Yeah, I like the big format. I like all the nuances. The distortion, the murkiness, the grain, the scratches — we make sure it's all there for you to discover." Yeah, I love it too. Enjoy.
