Behind the strange band name Electric Würms hides no one else than the untiring Flaming Lips, whose productivity obviously knows no bounds, because after an EP, an album and the Electric Würms ride, a new version of "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" will follow at the end of the year. The name of the project already suggests it, Wayne Coyne and Co. indulge in their herb rock obsessions. Tone cycles with a sparkle, completely blues-free with lots of keyboards. The whole fun isn't even thirty minutes long, but it's so full of fragments of ideas and tiny pieces of play that it's reminiscent of the seventies. In addition to Lips protagonists Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd, four members of the band Linear Downfall, who were already involved in the flaming lips remake of "In The Court Of The Crimson King", are also involved in this project. The Flaming Lips continue to expand their platform. This logo has long since ceased to be a fixed formation, but rather a bundle of ideas centred around Wayne Coyne. And the wonderful version of the Yes classic "Heart Of The Sunrise" sets new perspectives.
