The Flaming Lips – “Smoke On The Water” (Deep Purple Cover)

By Corban Goble / August 21, 2012

There’s a Deep Purple tribute album on the horizon called Re-Machined: A Tribute to Machine Head, which, as you can imagine, is a reimagining of the group’s classic album Machine Head. The Flaming Lips, who are not shy of doing weird stuff, stepped up to take on “Smoke On The Water.” You can hear that — as well as Metallica’s cover of “When A Blind Man Cries” — at Ultimate Classic Rock. It’s out 9/25 on Eagle Records.
