“If [Rivers Cuomo’s] songs were people, they’d be around 16, smart, self-absorbed and a little nasty; they would not like the taste of beer. Wayne Coyne, the relaxed, glad-handing singer and songwriter of the Flaming Lips, writes spaced-out, psychedelic singalongs. His songs might be around 21, kind of looking for an internship and very interested in who they were at 5. They have just dropped acid and want to talk to you.”—
Ben Ratliff, “A Team of Introvert and Extrovert”
A concert review in The New York Times of the Weezer and Flaming Lips co-headliner show.
