The Flaming Lips

 The Flaming Lips are an American rock band originally from Oklahoma City. Melodically, their sound seems vague, weird, multi-layered and incorporates psychedelic rock arrangements, but lyrically their compositions show elements of space rock. Also the album and song names are very typical such as: "Psychiatric Explorations of the Fetus with Needles", "Free Radicals (A Hallucination of the Christmas Skeleton Pleading with a Suicide Bomber)" and "Yeah, I Know It's a Drag... But Wastin' Pigs Is Still Radical". They are also acclaimed for their elaborate live shows, which feature costumes, balloons, puppets, video projections, complex stage light configurations, giant hands, large amounts of confetti, and frontman Wayne Coyne's signature man-sized plastic bubble, in which he traverses the audience. In 2002, Q magazine named The Flaming Lips one of the "50 Bands to See Before You Die". And believe me it is the most psychedelic experiences I have ever witnessed on-stage.
