The Flaming Lips - She's Gone Mad (Tyson Meade, Chainsaw Kittens)

My interview with Tyson Meade about his very interesting new project - going to China to record an album with students and promote goodwill between East & West.  He's got a Kickstarter campaign going if you want to contribute, it all sounds very cool.  I've posted before about my enthusiasm for his old band, Chainsaw Kittens.  Highly underrated, should've been a lot bigger than they were. Only yesterday I found out that The Flaming Lips covered the Kittens' She's Gone Mad on their The Day They Shot A Hole In The Jesus Egg, the expanded version of In A Priest Driven Ambulance with 23 bonus tracks of b-sides, demos, covers, and unreleased songs.

The original can be found on Chainsaw Kittens first album, Violent Religion.  And here's Tyson and Beau Jennings performing it at Okie Noodling 2012:
