the flaming lips

The Flaming Lips' drummer Kliph Scurlock is no longer a member of the band, according to Lips' representatives. Rumors were circulating when fans noticed Scurlock wasn't playing with the band at the Buku Music Project last month.

Matt Duckworth, drummer for Lips collaborators Stardeath and White Dwarves, filled in for Scurlock during the Buku show. He also took up the drums in the Flaming Lips’ April Fools Day videos, which the band created with comedy website Funny or Die. There is no word yet on whether or not he will be joining the Lips in a more permanent fashion.
