Flaming Lips New Years Eve Freakout 2011

(Youtube Direktflaming)

Ich liebe alles, auf dem der Name Flaming Lips steht und alleine die Ankündung oben zu ihrem New Year's Eve FREAKOUT 2011, nach Mitternacht „The Soft Bulletin“ komplett zu spielen, macht mich neidisch auf jeden Einwohner von Oklahoma City. Narf. Mehr neues von den Lips 2011 von Rolling Stone:

Frontman Wayne Coyne tells Rolling Stone that the band will hit the studio soon and plans to release new songs every month, while filming the entire process.

"We'll start in late January, though I'm not sure if we'll get together exactly by then," Coyne says, adding that the band will convene in Oklahoma with longtime producer Dave Fridmann. "With this new thing, we're going to spend a lot of time recording at our houses or wherever we are at. We'll try to release a song a month and document the song in the making, whether it takes us three or five days or a week. It's gonna be, 'We're working on a song and it's gonna be up by Friday.' We just want to [release material] some other way."

Hier noch ein Behind the Scenes-Video von ihrem dritten March of the 1000 Flaming Skeletons, den sie seit 2007 veranstalten, gefolgt mit einem Interview kurz vor dem Skeleton-March 2008. Ich liebe die Jungs!

Wired.com: Are you excited about the March? It’s taking off.

Wayne Coyne: Yeah, we did it last year as an experiment in public performance-art bullshit, in conjunction with Oklahoma City, which was trying to do something for the community. Previous to this, Halloween was always balked at by the religious people around here, always played down. When we were thinking about the parade a few years ago, the city was like, "You’ll be the biggest attraction in it, right?" So we said, well, damn, OK. So I proposed the March, the fire marshal and everyone else got involved, and it went off last year without any trouble. Meaning, no one got burned alive.

Wired.com: That’s as good a measure of success as any.

Wayne Coyne: It can be a big worry when you have that many people and fire in one place. You never know what is going to happen, but it all seemed to work. Five or six years down the line, we’ll have built it up to around 10,000 people. We’ll ask everybody to get in and grab a torch. And not kill anybody.
