The World's First Headphone Concerts


The 1999 concerts have kicked off with amazing events in Dallas and Austin. Billed as the "World's First Headphone Concerts" the band has put together an amazing mulitmedia event, including films and low-power FM transmission of additional sounds that require a radio-walkman to enjoy fully. George of Particle did a great flyer and now there are photos of the headphone concerts up at the main site.

Oh, here's the band's 1998 - 2002 Holiday postcards.

 

A Collection of Songs Representing An Enthusiasm For Recording...By Amateurs...or The Accidental Career...

The Flaming Lips 1984-1990 - released in late 1998 by Restless, who controls the early (pre-WB) Flaming Lips recordings. Its a fine representation of the early years of Mr. Coyne and company examining the music-making process. Included are album cuts, alternate takes, b-sides, covers/tributes and, for your computer, a video of "Unconsciously Screaming," which is pretty damn cool. Also, liner notes by Wayne, which pretty much sums it up.

An excerpt: "3. Michael Time To Wake Up ...Me, literally, waking Michael up with a sort of Paul Leary guitar solo...He was sleeping with his head about six inches away from the speakers in an amp...it seemed funny at the time."

 

THE PARKING LOT EXPERIMENTS

& BoomBox Hijinks ...covers 96-98's forays into experimental presentation of their music. Parking Lots Experiments, Boom Box Concerts, and general multi-track insanity. Originally starting with lots of friends with cars in parking structures, the band expanded on their Parking Lot idea and "moved on" to perform many of these events in clubs with Boom Boxes and used the audience as participants. The London show was a star-studded affair, from the reports I've read.

 

ZAIREEKA

"a combining of the words 'Zaire' and 'Eureka'" ...the 4CD set that's meant to be played at the same time, or some reasonable combination thereof. Yes, you need multiple CD players/sound systems.

Released in late '97, this outgrowth of the Parking Lot Experiments is the most ambitious recording endeavour the band has taken on. Talking to Michael Ivins before the recording sessions brought out just how meticulous the recordings were going to be. How do you keep track of some sounds used on Disc 1, Track 1 that might be handy on Disc 3, Track 8? While the thought of recording it made my head hurt, and listening to it disorients me, I think its an amazing piece of art.

Not yer standard rock album, OK? Read the NME review from January, 1998.
