INTERVIEW: Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips
Grammy Award winning rock band The Flaming Lips have been turning out music since 1983. Wayne Coyne has been the band’s frontman since shortly after their debut. His lifelong commitment to pushing boundaries in art, music, and general strangeness has been the driving force behind The Flaming Lips’ infamous live performances.
Their live shows have included variously: confetti cannons, laser pointers, dozens of large balloons, dancers dressed as aliens, yetis, fake blood, and even Wayne appearing from a giant alien mothership.
The Flaming Lips released their 16th album American Head last month. Charlotte sat down and talked to Wayne Coyne about the band’s incredible longevity, fatherhood, and more.
Songs played in this segment:
The Flaming Lips -Do you Realize
The Flaming Lips - Will you return / When you come down
The Flaming Lips - Watching the Lightbugs glow

1:10 INTERVIEW: Idles' Joe Talbot on fighting fascism with empathy
Joe Talbot is the frontman of UK punk band Idles, who have drawn attention for their lyrics which tackle sexism, homophobia, and racism. He tells Tony Stamp the bands' new album Ultra Mono is about fighting fascism with empathy.
Many of the songs on this album were inspired by therapy, and touch on the importance of self-care. This is modern punk.
1.30 The Sampler
This week on The Sampler Nick Bollinger discusses the power of refusal in the music of Lincolnshire's Billy Nomates; and a motherlode of previously unreleased Prince.
There's been enough said about the power of positive thinking, but expressing the negative can be powerful too. UK singer Billy Nomates does just that.
Her debut single was simply titled ‘NO’ and she claims “In a world of Yes Men, I’ll be a No Woman, thanks”.
Nick Bollinger reviews her self titled debut album on The Sampler.
Songs played in this segment of The Sampler:
Billy Nomates - No
Billy Nomates - Hippy Elite
Billy Nomates - Supermarket Sweep
Billy Nomates - Forgotten Normal People
Billy Nomates - Fat White Man
Billy Nomates - Call In Sick

The unreleased recordings of Prince have long been the stuff of legend, until now. His 1987 masterpiece Sign O’ The Times has been re-issued, including all the original tracks as well as dozens of unreleased songs from his archive.
