The Miley high club

So the Flaming Lips' onstage hook-up with Miley Cyrus in LA wasn't a one-off - they did it again in Tulsa, again performing 'Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots' twice. Cyrus has declared herself to be a huge Lips fan and Wayne Coyne and company have a long history of doing the unexpected - so perhaps it's not that surprising to learn that they're also working on a cover of the Beatles' 'Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds' (together with MGMT's Andrew VanWyngarden), as announced by Coyne on Instagram with an accompanying photo of Cyrus skinning up.

It would be fascinating to see what would happen if they collaborated on a longer project - after all, their most recent "proper" album, last year's The Terror, is bleak and experimental so it could turn out to be Nick Cave and Kylie Minogue all over again.
