The Flaming Lips
King's Mouth

King’s Mouth is The Flaming Lips fifteenth album. It is named after, and based on, Wayne Coyne’s mind-bending art installation. According to Coyne, it comes from the same nucleus as the band’s live performances. Needless to say, it’s a typically odd/beautiful mix of sounds and words. Mick Jones of The Clash keeps popping up and narrating bits of it too.

The Flaming Lips
Death Trippin’ At Sunrise: Rarities, B-Sides & Flexi-Discs 1986-1990

An extremely exciting release for all you fans of The Flaming Lips’ somewhat underrated earlier days. Death Trippin’ At Sunrise: delvers two LPs-worth of rare material, previously only sited on B-sides, compilations, and even flexi-discs, all dating from the chaotic yet fertile period 1986 to 1990. Double LP reissue from Warner Bros.

The Flaming Lips
In A Priest Driven Ambulance

It's sometimes hard to recall when they are rolling round in oversized hamster balls and hanging round with Miley Cyrus that the Flaming Lips were once an incredible band. That's band not sideshow. In a Priest Driven Ambulance was their fourth album originally released in 1990 and features Jonathan Donahue (Mercury Rev) helping Wayne Coyne out with his skewed psychedelic vision.

The Flaming Lips
Greatest Hits Vol. 1

I remember sitting by my radio cassette player one Sunday evening in 1986 with my finger poised to hit play and record simultaneously to record The Flaming Lips No.3 hit, Jesus Shooting Heroin. This is all lies of course. The Flaming Lips haven’t had any real chart hits as such, but they are releasing Greatest Hits Vol. 1 which is a sprawling 52 track 3 CD collection containing some of their best-loved songs and more obscure ditties from 1992 onward. It even includes that song that was only released on an MP3 stick inside a gummy skull. The LP version is a more concise and recognisable 11 track best of.

Oh My Gawd!!!...The Flaming Lips

Oh My Gawd!!! indeed. 1987’s … The Flaming Lips is Wayne Coyne et al’s sophomore LP. Still half a decade off from their mainstream breakthrough ‘She Don’t Use Jelly’, the band let their classic rock fetishism run rampant on this record. Heavily indebted to The Beatles, Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath, the trio’s youthful exuberance comes through on the likes of opening cut ‘Everything’s Explodin’’. Now reissued with full(y horrendous) original artwork.

Seeing The Unseeable: The Complete Studio Recordings Of The Flaming Lips 1986-1990

Before signing a major label deal with Warner Bros, The Flaming Lips made four albums with Restless Records. Now you can buy all four: Hear It Is, Oh My Gawd, Telepathic Surgery and In A Priest Driven Ambulance (which some may argue is still their best album) plus a disc of rarities and The Mushroom Tapes (previously released as part of the The Day They Shot A Hole In The Jesus Egg comp) together as Seeing The Unseeable: The Complete Studio Recordings of The Flaming Lips. It documents the band’s first outing as a three piece to the point where the band included Jonathan Donahue of Mercury Rev fame. 6 CD Box Set on Warner Bros.

Scratching The Door: The First Recordings Of The Flaming Lips

In the press release for Scratching The Door: The First Recordings of The Flaming Lips, it credits them with two decades of musical boundary pushing, it’s nearer four decades, not that I wish to be pedantic, but credit where credit’s due, right? Anyway, this is exactly what it says it is, recordings from the earliest days (1983) of the Oklahoma experimental rockers. So early in fact that it's Mark Coyne and not his brother Wayne on lead vocal duties. Remastered by Dave Fridmann with help from Wayne Coyne and Michael Ivins. CD on Warner Bros.

The Flaming Lips
With A Little Help From My Fwends

In absolutely horrific news, Flaming Lips have seen fit to re-make 'Sgt Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band' with a selection of people they call their 'fwends', the thought of which makes me puke with the whole matey celeb pointlessness of it. Miley Cyrus is on there as is Juliana Barwick and My Morning Jacket. Sometimes the worst ideas turn out ok but I have visions of the Bee Gees still despairing appearance of the film version of the album back in 1978. Flaming Lips have done some good music over the years so I hold out some kind of hope. But on paper a terrible, back-slapping,  vapid idea.

The Flaming Lips Onboard the International Space Station Concert for Peace

The Flaming Lips recreate seven cuts from their newest album Oczy Mlody in live performance at the International Space Station Concert for Peace, although we should warn you that this concert might possibly have been fictional… The music is tangible and real though, and bursting with psychedelic spacey life, as ever. Vinyl release on Bella Union.

The Flaming Lips
Oczy Mlody

Fewer band's have remained so deliciously weird and consistently influential in the universe of alternative rock than The Flaming Lips. Led by the eerie and pounding The Castle, Oczy Mlody becomes the latest addition to a bulging catalogue - which continues to reinvent and surprise over 24 years down the line.

The Flaming Lips
Lightning Strikes The Postman

If you didn't know already, Wayne Coyne's merry psychedelic nuisances love to release things, and they especially love to do it in weird formats. Behold this CD version of 'Lightning Strikes the Postman', taken from their pre-symphonic 'Clouds Taste Metallic' era. This tune has an alternate mix with old guitarist Ronald Jones, and of course it comes as a comic written by Coyne, because that dude never lets up.

The Flaming Lips
Imagene Peise

Don’t be shocked by The Flaming Lips’ ability to surprise. The jazzy piano tones of their secret Christmas EP (released in 2010) float along on a bed of analogue synth and holiday cheer, filtered through classic Lips melancholy. "Frosty the Snowman", "Do You Hear What I Hear" and "Christmas Waltz" are all given the Flaming treatment, the band meandering their way through in a continuous festive jam.

Yoko Ono & The Flaming Lips
Happy Xmas (War Is Over)

The Flaming Lips continue their merry series of collaborations by reprising their relationship with Yoko Ono, this time with a version of optimistic festive classic Happy Xmas (War Is Over). The B-side is stocked with their previous 2013 collaboration Atlas Eets Christmas, which was previously desperately rare. 7” on Chimera Music.

Essential stuff for fans of the band.

7 Skies H3

Releasing one album, 1997’s Zaireeka, over four discs that had to played simultaneously, was simply not left-field enough for the Flaming Lips. With the original release of 7 Skies H3 in 2011, they significantly upped the ante by releasing the 24 hour long song on a memory stick packaged inside a real human skull. It sold for $5000. This CD contains a 50 minute concentrated version, released for the first time.

The Flaming Lips
Telepathic Surgery

The Flaming Lips were building up a head of steam at the end of the 1980’s, but the band’s mainstream breakthrough was still a good few years off. As such, the LPs from this period see the Lips indulging both their love of classic rock acts like Pink Floyd and the experimental tendencies they inherited from … Pink Floyd. Case in point: 1989’s Telepathic Surgery, a record that has a fair heft of Pink Floyd to it. Proggy freakouts, sound collages, songs called ‘Hari-Krishna Stomp Wagon (Fuck Led Zeppelin)’, that sort of thing.

Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots

Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots was the album in which the hitherto psychedelic the Flaming Lips finally crossed over to the mainstream after nine previous albums of slowly decreasing weirdness. It showcased a more electronic and computer generated sound for the band and was a joyous, excitable mess of colour exemplified by its singalong anthem the evergreen Do You Realize?

The Flaming Lips
Hear It is

Warner Brothers’ Flaming Lips reissue series continues with the band’s debut LP, 1986’s Hear It Is. This set is a world away from the Pet Sounds-ish maximalism of The Soft Bulletin. Across these ten tunes we find Wayne Coyne et al see-sawing between Barettian balladry (‘With You’, ‘Jesus Shootin’ Heroin’) and punk thrash (‘Just Like Before’, ‘Unplugged’).
