    Ep. 142: Wayne Coyne (The Flaming Lips)

    Ep. 142: Wayne Coyne (The Flaming Lips)

    Today’s rockstar guest is a member of one of the most iconic, influential, unpredictable and vital forces in American rock music, The Flaming Lips. During their tenure, their ever-evolving, GRAMMY Award-winning sound has become a genre unto itself and contains lush, multi-layered arrangements. Lyrically, their compositions reflect the light and dark in all of us combined with bold experimental production that breathes life into their space-age-prog, punk pop and appeals to a broad spectrum of music lovers around the globe. Known for their elaborate live stage shows, THE LIPS have become the ultimate live rock experience with the likes of Q Magazine and Rolling Stone naming The Flaming Lips one of the "50 Bands to See Before You Die." Their reputation as canny songwriters and great performers have made The LIPS an actively sought out collaborative entity who have participated in numerous, oddly diverse recorded and live performances that include Yoko Ono, David Lynch, Philip Glass, Bon Iver, Lightning Bolt, Coldplay, Beck, Nick Cave, Erykah Badu, Thievery Corporation, Grace Potter, The Chemical Brothers, Jim James, Miley Cyrus and many more. The band recently achieved yet another set of “Firsts” by being the first band to perform prophylactically for late night TV (Colbert/Fallon), and NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert. In January 2021, The Lips played The World’s First-Ever Space Bubble Concerts with band and audience safely encased and physically distanced within their own individual clear Space Bubbles in their hometown of Oklahoma City. And The Writer Is… Wayne Coyne!
