The Flaming Lips: Gummi Skull & Record Store Day Release

At precisely 4:20PM on April 20 at Oklahoma’s Guestroom Records, The Flaming Lips frontman, Wayne Coyne, personally delivered five USB sticks that were each encased inside of a large, seven pound skull made entirely out of edible gummi material. On the USBs were four brand new tracks. The five skulls sold for $150 each and it does seem doubtful that there will be any more Gummi Skulls being produced. However, you can listen to the four Gummi Skull tracks below:

1. ‘Drug Chart’:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rA1AYIHiGk8?rel=0&w=640&h=30

2. ‘In Our Bodies, Out Of Our Heads’:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJDTKOmJdVI?rel=0&w=640&h=30

3. ‘Walk With Me’:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xsE-6W2rIr8?rel=0&w=640&h=30

4. ‘Hilary’s Time Machine Machine’:    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KyEumxOMKd4?rel=0&w=640&h=30

Guestroom Records is the same record store where Coyne recently delivered a very limited number of trippy vinyls whereby the Lips collaborated with chill-wave producer Neon Indian recently. Click here to check it out.

In other Flaming Lips news, the band released a cover of the amazing Guided by Voices track, ‘Smothered in Hugs’ for this year’s Record Store Day. It is a beautiful rendition of the song, somewhat unexpected considering the recent offerings from the whacky Flaming Lips.
