Kliph Scurlock w/ the Lips at GoogaMooga 2013 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Kliph Scurlock

The Flaming Lips, who recently pulled an elaborate April Fool's prank and have a Sgt. Pepper's cover album coming out with Tame Impala, Miley and others, have now lost a member. Drummer Kliph Scurlock, who joined the band as a live member in 2002 and went on to record with them on studio albums Embryonic and The Terror, has left the band, a representative told Pitchfork. As The Future Heart pointed out, rumors started flying about his departure after he was not with the band at their BUKU Fest performance.

The Flaming Lips have more festival appearances confirmed for this year, including Bonnaroo and the inaugural upstate NY festival The Hudson Project.

Watch The Flaming Lips playing "Do You Realize??" at Glastonbury 2010 with Kliph Scurlock below...

I made it through 1:21 minutes of that video, before I got embarrassed for them and turned it off.

Nows the time to stick Drozd back behind the drums and find Ronald Jones.

can't even brave the winds and acknowledge you threw the guy out of the band for talking about your "friend" on Facebook. hypocrisy. you've got a legion of fawning idiots following you now, but not a lot of genuine fans. i guess nothing really matters at your age anyway.

And people used to wonder why Ronald Jones quit the band... clearly he had the right idea all along.

Kliph Scurlock leaves The Flaming Lips after realizing the band has become a complete hackshow and a shell of its former self.

Kliph Scurlock leaves to start drumming in the Ronald Jones Familienband.

Hey, here's a headline for you: Bushwick musicians talk shit about Flaming Lips, play Shea Stadium to no one.

Wow, a lot of concerned fans. Why don't you set up 4 CD players and listen to Zaireeka. That'll take your mind off things.
