The Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne sounds off on music and mobile

More than a quarter century removed from the release of their self-titled debut EP, the Flaming Lips remain one of the most fascinating and endlessly innovative bands in contemporary pop music. The Oklahoma City-based psych-rock quartet--frontman Wayne Coyne, bassist Michael Ivins, multi-instrumentalist Steven Drozd and drummer Kliph Scurlock--has dedicated 2011 to exploring the outer reaches of how its music is recorded, distributed and consumed. Later this month, the Flaming Lips will resume their 2011 concert tour, playing a series of East Coast gigs before crossing the globe to headline a handful of dates in Australia. Coyne somehow found time in the band's frenetic schedule to speak to FierceMobileContent about his creative process, the power of Twitter and how technology shapes our relationship with the world.
