How many times can you say The Flaming Lips are doing something outrageous, unique, extraordinary, etc. The band that never ceases to amaze and shock are one again amazing and shocking. The Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne told Pitchfork this week that the band was planning to release another gummy item, “a skull that has an actual vaginal fucking thing stuck to the back of it – you have to reach into it to get the USB.” There really are no words… In addition to the vaginal fucking thing, the Lips are planning an acid-trip themed frog gummy. They are also working on collaborations, among them with Deerhoof, Stars, Death Cab and Nick Cave. This coming weekend the band’s hosting a house party in Parkersburg, Virginia and on Halloween they release their 24-hour song, which you will be able to buy in a real human skull with chrome hair for $5,000. Finally, after seven years of work the band’s musical for which they worked with Jersey Boys director and producer Des McAnuff may see production begin next year, if they can raise enough money right now. So, enough Flaming Lips news for you? You’re right, it’s never enough.
