The Flaming Lips – A Six Hour Long Song

The Flaming Lips’ frontman, Wayne Coyne, recently revealed details about their latest project:  a six hour long song entitled “I Found This Star on the Ground” intended to accompany a strobe light toy.  Coyne describes the overall feel of the song as “Velvet Underground meets Super Mario Brothers.”  According to Coyne, “[The song and strobe light are] kind of meant so that kids can like, take LSD and play with it.  You know, that’s kind of our intention, so that people buy it at like a festival, and then go back to their parents’ and take some acid and play with it all night.”  The Flaming Lips started the project thinking it would be fun.  Coyne now admits that the project is insane.
