Video: Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips does The Wikipedia Files (Part 1)

Now that the Wikipedia Files are available as a podcast, we're revisiting some of our "classic" interviews. This was filmed at last year's Pitchfork Music Festival and originally posted on July 20, 2009. We're not sure exactly how we booked an interview with Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips, but around 5:45 on Sunday evening Justin, Carrie and I found ourselves in a trailer by the Union Park fieldhouse waiting to do just that. Wayne was a great interview, but a long one. That's why we're presenting this interview in five parts. Here's part one- check back all week for the rest.
