From the 1,000 Skeleton March to the long-brewing (and delayed) sci-fi flick Christmas On Mars, to name a pair, no doubt the Flaming Lips are into their Holidays. The latter’s been a longtime coming: Wayne Coyne & Co. started working on Christmas in 2001 and finished filming in 2005. Christmas, which Coyne wrote and directed, debuted this past May, but I haven’t seen it. He plays “The Martian.” Fred Armisen’s in it, too. All of that said and skimmed, I have no idea where “Space Bible With Volume Lumps” comes into the picture, though it’s the penultimate track.
Let’s hope it’s soundtracking a particularly courtly sex scene between the Martian and some space birds (not really) (really).
The Christmas On Mars soundtrack is out 11/11 via Warner Bros. You can get more info at the Lips’ site.
