Info for With A Little Help From My Fwends

Große Musiker brauchen große Aufgaben, damit man ihre Größe überhaupt wahrnimmt. Den Wahnsinn, sich an einer Neuauflage von “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” zu versuchen, kann man schon gar nicht mehr in diesen Kategorien messen. Im besten Fall kann man mit diesem kühnen Plan nicht komplett scheitern. Es sei denn, die ambitionierte Band, die sich am Beatles-Meisterwerk versucht, sind The Flaming Lips, die sich bereits sehr erfolgreich am Werk von The Stone Roses, King Crimson und zuletzt Pink Floyd versucht haben.

Wenn jemand in die psychedelischen Sphären vordringen kann, in denen die Fab Four Ende der 60er schwebten, ist es das Quartett aus Oklahoma. Und sie arbeiten nicht allein, sondern “With A Little Help From My Fwends”, wie schon der Albumtitel verrät. So erweitern sie den Kreis der Wagemutigen um so unterschiedliche Künstler wie J Masics, My Morning Jacket, Tegan And Sara, Moby, Phantogram, MGMT, Foxygen und Miley Cyrus. Die Band um Mastermind Wayne Coyne liefert die Ideen, umgesetzt werden sie zu einem großen Teil von ihren Mitstreitern. Ein Konzept, das aufgeht.

Wenn J Masics den Titeltrack mit einem Gitarrensolo aufrüttelt oder Miley Cyrus im Refrain von “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds” auf den Punkt abliefert, wird einem schnell bewusst, dass dieses Album nicht plump kopieren will. “With A Little Help From My Fwends” versucht, das Original zu würdigen, und schafft dies auf eine wunderbar individuelle Weise. Selbst das nah an der Vorlage gehaltene “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)” von Foxygen und MGMT strahlt seinen eigenen Lo-Fi-Charme aus.

“With A Little Help From My Fwends” leistet mehr als man von einem Coveralbum erwarten kann. Während wenige Stücke sich eher an der Vorlage orientieren, ohne dabei blind abzukupfern, bestechen Songs wie “Lovely Rita” oder “Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite!” durch spannende neue Ansätze. Es ist fast unmöglich, sich einem Original wie “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” würdig zu nähern. Doch wenn man es versucht, dann bitte so. (Redaktion, byteFM)

The Flaming Lips are an American rock band, formed in Norman, Oklahoma in 1983.

Melodically, their sound contains lush, multi-layered, psychedelic rock arrangements, but lyrically their compositions show elements of space rock, including unusual song and album titles—such as "Psychiatric Explorations of the Fetus with Needles", "Free Radicals (A Hallucination of the Christmas Skeleton Pleading with a Suicide Bomber)" and "Yeah, I Know It's a Drag... But Wastin' Pigs Is Still Radical". They are also acclaimed for their elaborate live shows, which feature costumes, balloons, puppets, video projections, complex stage light configurations, giant hands, large amounts of confetti, and frontman Wayne Coyne's signature man-sized plastic bubble, in which he traverses the audience. In 2002, Q magazine named The Flaming Lips one of the "50 Bands to See Before You Die".

The group recorded several albums and EPs on an indie label, Restless, in the 1980s and early 1990s. After signing to Warner Brothers, they scored a hit in 1993 with "She Don't Use Jelly". Although it has been their only hit single in the U.S., the band has maintained critical respect and, to a lesser extent, commercial viability through albums such as 1999's The Soft Bulletin (which was NME magazine's Album of the Year) and 2002's Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots. They have had more hit singles in the UK and Europe than in the U.S. In February 2007, they were nominated for a 2007 BRIT Award in the "Best International Act" category. By 2007, the group garnered three Grammy Awards, including two for Best Rock Instrumental Performance.

On October 13, 2009 the group released their latest studio album, titled Embryonic. On December 22, 2009, the Flaming Lips released a remake of the 1973 Pink Floyd album The Dark Side Of The Moon. In 2011, the band announced plans to release new songs in every month of the year, with the entire process filmed.

This album contains no booklet.
