Last November teenage songstress NELL SMITH and Oklahoma’s psychedelic bohemians THE FLAMING LIPS teamed up (after meeting several times after Lips gigs) teamed up for an album of 9 covers of Nick Cave songs album. Totally special, right? You don’t see a 13-year-old teenager front a big name band, every day. Plus, covering Cave is not really like having a walk in the park. But it all turned tremendously well with Where The Viaduct Looms as the exquisite result.
Coyne: “It is always great to meet excited, young creative people.
With Nell we could see she is on a journey and thought it would be
fun to join her for a while and see if we could get things going. It was
a great way to connect with her and help harness her cool attitude
to making music.”
Nick Cave: “I’m a fan.”
A couple of days ago Nell and The Lips played
Red Right Hand on the American Late Show.
Utterly cool performance.
Let’s roll the tape…
