Touring behind their new album South Of Reality, The Lennon Claypool Delirium joined The Flaming Lips at the Capitol Theatre the other night (7/30).
A typhoon of oddball virtuosity, the band is one of the most innovative and arresting outfits around.
Les Claypool is a force of nature and Sean Lennon has matured into a rather brilliant and idiosyncratic guitar player and the two men weave around each other like a circuitous masterclass of sheer musicianship.
This was pretty much a clinic.
Their take on Pink Floyd’s “Astronomy Domine” and The Beatles’ “Tomorrow Never Knows” were decidedly brilliant and originals like “Boriska” and “Easily Charmed By Fools” were fresh and engaging.
