Until recently one of the ultimate indie cult bands, The Flaming Lips have survived the ravages of heroin, acid and a hunting trip with William Burroughs. Now, their new album At War With The Mystics finds them taking their funky psychedelia to strange new places – including the upper reaches of the charts for the first time. Could it be that their moment has finally come? Interviews: Craig Fitzsimons (now) and Peter Murphy (then). additional reporting: Stuart Clark, Ed Power and Jackie Hayden

Where do they get them? Once again lovable Uncle Wayne is back with yet another slice of sublime musical weirdness, this time tackling subjects as heavy as global political attitudes and positions of power in the wonderfully abstract and uplifting manner which only The Flaming Lips are capable of. In the vein of ‘Do You Realize’ Coyne questions the listeners' understanding of the mindset of those in power before concluding “You can not know yourself or what you’d really do with all your power”. This all unfolds amid a backdrop of typically weird and eclectic festival friendly sounds making for an infectious, intelligent and very welcome respite to the barrage of Blair bashing and anti-Bush protest songs. On this form Coyne and co just can’t be bettered.

For those who thought that treading water was no way to dismantle an atomic bomb, and that when added together X and Y amounted to nothing much at all, over the horizon some long-awaited ballast is about to arrive. Wayne Coyne prefers a white suit to a white hat, but make no mistake; At War With The Mystics is one hell of a heroic and defiant album.
