Remember a few days ago when we told you about some sketchy lo-fi dudes who call themselves The Flaming Lips? Well, according to our pals over at Consequence of Sound, it seems like The Flaming Lips have scrounged up some old material to reissue for Record Store Day, which falls on April 20 this year. Just a few tunes they recorded in Wayne Coyne’s backyard and handed out to their friends and moms sometime in 1997. It’s got some weird name, like Zaireeka, I think. Somebody over here might have listened to it once or twice? Originally, you’d get four discs that you’d play at the same time on different stereos for some crazy, spacey effects, so maybe you’ll get a whole stack of records this time around too? (Yes, this is being reissued on VINYL.) Hopefully a few people will pick up this Zaireeka thing, and maybe The Flaming Lips will finally garner some sort of following and be able to stop playing in shitty basements without lights.
I think they’d really appreciate it if you listened to one of their songs:
