The Flaming Lips

The Flaming Lips have been around since 1982, however their first full length album didn't get releaseduntil 1983. The Flaming Lips music is quirky, creative, unique, and whimsical.

The Flaming Lips have been around since 1982, however their first full length album didn't get releaseduntil 1983. The Flaming Lips music is quirky, creative, unique, and whimsical. Wayne Coyne is thebands lead songwriter and vocalist, he is known for creating extremely strange song titles accompaniedby odd lyrics. At first the Lips started out as a punk band flooding with raw energy. With each album youcould tell that the band is maturing, In 1991 the band started moving towards a more acid-pop soundwith their release of "Hit to Death in the Future Head." In 1993 the band got its first taste of success,'She don't use Jelly' was a top 40 hit in '93, and even appeared on MTV. However in 1999 the Lipschanged everything around and dropped their raw psychedelic/punk roots. "The Soft Bulletin" is thebands 10th album, and it is an atmospheric, spacey album. "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots" was thebands latest release and got noticed because of the odd title it was given, and because it was made upof bright atmospheric pop tunes. The Flaming Lips have done just about everything, from quirkybubblegum pop songs, to punk, to atmospheric space jazz songs. « hide
