The Flaming Lips - "Smoke On The Water" (Deep Purple Cover)

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.

  1. QUIT WITH THE FUCKING COVERS!!! Make some decent music again!

    • It’s for a tribute album – something the Lips have done since the late ’80s.
      Neil Young, Sinatra, Alice Cooper, John Lennon (twice) etc.

      For anyone else interested you can watch them record the track plus more info (album art, tracklist, making of the album videos, release dates, package info etc) on the release at
