Scary Flaming Lips/Lightning Bolt Collaboration Revealed

Thankfully The Flaming Lips have decided to ditch all the day-glo space robot nonsense that overtook them on the lacklustre follow-ups to The Soft Bulletin (I hate hate hate At War With The Mystics) and concentrate on being absolute musical mentalists again. On Embryonic they managed to successfully combine all the fuzz, joy and idiosyncrasies contained on great records like Clouds Taste Metallic with the sonic intricacies that made The Soft Bulletin such a groundbreaker, and it was a proper return to form. Since then they’ve gone on a mad rampage and released songs here and there in the most bizarre ways they can think of (USB stick in a marijuana-flavoured gummi skull, anyone?) and their latest trick is a startling collaboration with everyone’s favourite Rhode Island noisers Lightning Bolt. The video for ‘I Want to Get High But I Don’t Want Brain Damage’ has surfaced and you can freak out to it here:

The druggy/hilarious tracklist for the EP is:

01 I’m Working at NASA on Acid
02 I Want to Get High But I Don’t Want Brain Damage
03 NASA’s Final Acid Bath
04 I Want to Get Damaged But I Won’t Say Hi
