Very cool, very diverse set for you this AM. Gotta run so I can't say much about it other than this Beck/Flaming Lips tour seems to have been somewhat of a mess and apparently Wayne Coyne and Co. grew a bit of a disdain for Mr. Beck Hansen.

I'm working on getting a good quality copy of this entire set but for now this is pretty darn awesome. What we have here are the five songs that were broadcast during The Flaming Lips 2004 performance at Austin City Limits. Check out Cat Power rock some Black Sabbath with Wayne and Co. below.

This is an interesting little bit of Flaming Lips history. It's not commercially available and was only released at the early screenings of the film "Okie Noodling" by Bradley Beesley. It's a pretty country affair, recorded at Wayne Coyne's home in 2001. "Okie Noodling" is the practice of hand fishing in rural Oklahoma, Wayne Coyne thought it had something to do with mast... Actually, just listen to it.
I'm posting this because it doesn't seem to be available for purchase anywhere and given its incredibly small release I don't think we're stepping on any toes. If anyone knows something I don't let me know!

It's early but this wins "awesome of the day" in my book. Check out Nels Cline take the stage with The Flaming Lips this past New Year's Eve to tackle a 17 minute version of The Beatles "I Want You (She's So Heavy)." It is heavy. Man.
The crazy bastards did it! Wayne Coyne & Co. first completed the 6 hour song, and now, for your Halloween delight, the 24 hour song - "7 Skies H3." It's going to start streaming at midnight on Halloween at this website. Apparently, the 24 bit audio file for the tune is 24 gigabytes, ha!
Steve Jobs, the man that changed the way we listen and get our music, will be honored by the Flaming Lips (I'm quite certain they're sponsored by Apple, if you've been to a recent show you probably know why...) at the O Music Awards 2 on October 31st in Los Angeles, CA. Their performance of The Beatles "Revolution" will be recorded on an iPad and broadcast on the O Music Awards web page. Certainly sounds interesting, as things seem to always be when you get the Flaming Lips involved.
In other Flaming Lips news, they're working on a 24 hour song to be released on the same day as the Jobs tribute performance (Halloween) in a gummy skull. The 24 hour song came after the 6 hour song, "I Found A Star On The Ground," which can be streamed below.
Quite a few of us will be seeing The Flaming Lips get weird with the classic Pink Floyd album Dark Side of the Moon at Red Rocks the night before My Morning Jacket take the stage in August, here is a taste of what's to come! This is from 2010, FYI.
Now that I’m back and I’ve had some time to compose myself, I’m ready to tell yall (“yall's” have been slipping since being down there, heard a ton of them this past week!) about the rest of the fest.
Saturday was a great day of tunes. After getting a great seafood meal at Mikee’s we got into the fest and decided to hit the giant drop and snap some photos from above the grounds. Bad idea after eating a ton of sea food. But, as it turns out, some heavy rock and roll via Athens, GA’s Dead Confederate turned things around. Those dudes rage and that’s the best way to explain it. Every instrument on stage is scratched, scuffed and pieced together with duct tape, not unlike the guys playing them. Ragged rock and roll.
Cee Lo Green showed up late to his set but Dave Grohl & Co. took the stage with a “Cee Lo Green, forget you! I guess we’re playing two sets today!” and then went right into some Alice Cooper “School’s Out.” They did a cover set that saw the likes of Alice Cooper, Tom Petty, Queen and Prince, it was pretty insane. Cee Lo eventually came out but…who really cares? The Foo Fighters tore it up and then we were off to the funky thump of Primus. I’ve seen Primus a few times now and while I can dig it, being 200 yards away for a Primus set makes it less interesting. But hearing Les Claypool make instruments do things they shouldn’t is always captivating, it’ll be interesting to see them open for the Flaming Lips come Red Rocks.
We were going to hit the Avett Brothers but we decided to stick around and have a nice spot for the Flaming Lips. I am so so so glad we did. I’ve never been to a Lips show. My friend Eric (who was there) is a Flaming Lips maniac and I’ve heard stories and seen amazing pictures from his experiences, but man o man, it was like a religious awakening. On top of the band on stage, there were sets of dancers on both sides, confetti and streamer cannons and a massive circular display with moveable panels that saw the band walking through it.
Throughout the show images and videos of animals, retinas, naked women and tripped out visuals flashed on the screen so perfectly in sync with the music. Wayne Coyne had his signature big hands out on some tracks and he also did his crowd surfing in a bubble thing as well. I was really glad to hear a lot of material off Embryonic, my favorite Lips record. The set was truly mind blowing and if you have an opportunity to see them, just do it. I don’t care if you’ve never even heard their music, you’ll be a fan after.
We heard the Foo Fighters from a distance for 4 or 5 songs and then headed back to the condo where we split our time between the hot tub, pool and ocean. There isn't a word to describe how fun Saturday night was.
