The Flaming Lips To Cover The Stone Roses

Re-working their classic debut album...
The Flaming Lips

The Flaming Lips could be set to cover The Stone Roses' debut album in its entirety.

The Flaming Lips have hit a purple patch. The Oklahoma band just can't seem to stop producing art, whether it's a studio album, a film or even a variety of Gummi memorabilia.

Alongside this, the band seem to enjoy covering classic albums. Previously, The Flaming Lips have released a version of 'The Dark Side Of The Moon' recorded with a variety of collaborators - now it seems to be the turn of 'The Stone Roses'.

The Manchester group's classic debut album is currently being re-worked in the studio, with Wayne Coyne recently posting a message on Instagram that he was recording a version of 'She Bangs The Drums': "Doin vocals for She bangs The Drum hopin to get Channy of Polica to sing on it too!!!!"

Elsewhere, Daniel Huffman of the band New Flumes revealed to fans that he appears on a version of 'Bye Bye Badman'. "Ashley from DEF RAIN came by the dome to sing on "Bye Bye Badman"!!! Stone Roses cover".

Meanwhile, Matt Duckworth from Stardeath and White Dwarfs is seemingly playing percussion on a version of 'Waterfall'. "Putting some congas on this wicked @hott_mt cover of Waterfall, by The Stone Roses!!! @ Pink Floor Studio".

No word of a release date as yet.

The news has caused no end of discussion in the Clash office, with some staffers suggesting that 'The Second Coming' might be more appropriate... Leave your thoughts in the comments section.
