Flaming Lips celebrate Zaireeka 10th anniversary
The Flaming Lips will be observing the 10th anniversary (!) of the four-disc Zaireeka by adding a fifth disc, a DVD with 5.1 Surround Sound. The DVD will feature a virtual Wayne Coyne who will provide commentary. The fun continues in Seattle on October 22nd at the Crocodile Cafe (in conjunction with Sonic Boom Records) who will play Zaireeka as it was meant to be played—all four cds at once. Dallas’ Good Records will do the same on October 30th. More in-stores expected to be announced soon. Check with your local independent record store to see if they will be joining in on the fun with quadrophonics. There is no official release date for the DVD as of yet.
In Lips’ related news, the Flaming Lips alley in Oklahoma City is being dedicated on October 25 at 11:30 a.m. at AT&T Bricktown Ballpark (the Plaza at Mickey Mantle entrance).
