13 Days of Oklahoma Music: The Flaming Lips experiment through 2011, play annual hometown Freakout tonight and Sunday
Since it’s the last day of 2011, this is the final installment of my “13 Days of Oklahoma Music,” a video series looking back at musical milestones reached by recording artists with state ties in the year almost past.
More than ever, Oklahoma City-based psychedelic rockers The Flaming Lips engaged in wild musical, visual and merchandising experimentation in 2011.
They’ve recorded six- and 24-hour-long songs, music on hard drives and USB drives encased in gummy fetuses, $5,000 real human skulls and strobe light toys.The Lips also have collaborated with Neon Indian, Prefuse 73 and Lightning Bolt.
The Lips’ latest collaboration involves Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon (widow and son of the late, great John Lennon), along with the Plastic Ono Band, with whom their playing their hometown New Year’s Freakout #5.
