THE FLAMING LIPS: Your Most Gracious Hosts At Chicago’s Riot Fest 2014
Did you seriously ever think you would still be listening to the Flaming Lips in the year 2014 back in the 90’s? Some of you say yes. And some of you, if you’re honest, will shake their head no. So much good music came out of that time period that it was hard to get a grasp on who would be staying long term and who would be fizzle away. Wayne Coyne and the boys have continued to crank out thought provoking music over the years and even a documentary released on Shout Entertainment DVD.
Now they are taking on, “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” in its entirety. A few of those songs are leaking onto Youtube.com and they are nothing short of fantastic. The Flaming Lips have taken the framework of the classic Beatle songs and have elevated them into the higher stratosphere.
Looking forward to seeing their set at this year’s Riot Fest Chicago 2014!
