Steven Drozd’s main gig is multi-instrumentalist for the psychedelic rock band the Flaming Lips. The group’s latest album, With A Little Help From My Fwends, is a tribute to the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Drozd also appears with Lips frontman Wayne Coyne, plus members of Nashville band Linear Downfall, on Musik, Die Shwer Zu Twerk, the debut EP by the experimental side project the Electric Würms. As Steven and the group were preparing to play their debut gig, Drozd took some time out to tell us all about the recording—including the band’s cover of the classic Yes track “Heart of the Sunrise”—and about the Lips’ latest covers collection. The tracks Steven discusses are, in order, “Heart of the Sunrise,” “Living,” “Transform!!!,” “Fixing a Hole,” and “I Could Only See Clouds.”
