The Flaming Lip- Fight Test EP

This incredible Ep, in support of 'Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots', is one every fan of good music should have in their collection. The Lips are an incredible band who will be making many more appearences here for you good people. This EP is not one I have seen many people own or even have the chance to hear. On the 7 tracks we are treated to an album cut, remixes, a live radio cut and some originals. For me the pinnacle of the EP is 'Thank You Jack White (for The Fiber Optic Jesus That You Gave Me)', and it is a great song that is worty of a place among their best. To those who have previously tuned in it's obvious I am a White Stripes fan as well - so the song is doubly wonderful. A band I love singing a song about annother band I love. The cover of Radiohead's 'Knives Out' is good enough and the re-working of 'Can't Get You Out Of My Head' originally by Kylie Minogue (their irony knows no bounds) is something completely unexpected and provides the lightweight material with some gravitas and depth. Thanks God for the Flaming Lips and expect to be seeing more.

Can you find the link?
