Oklahoma‘s eccentric psych pop-rock orchestra THE FLAMING LIPS, led by conductor-voice-face Wayne Coyne, are one of my all-time fav bands, on record (16 LPs so far) and on stage. Their live shows are a visual and aural spectacle. The symphonic magicians blew my mind several times (some pics below).
On stage spectacle
Yesterday was The Flaming Lips Day in San Francisco. The band was
honored with a ceremony on Sunday afternoon, prior to their headlining
performance at the city’s Stern Grove Festival. I wouldn’t mind organizing a
Flaming Lips Day in Belgium, but I guess the chances for this to happen is zero.
You know, just the thought is already satisfying.
