Watch Flamings Lips Cover "I Am The Walrus" In Studio

It’s been a fruitful year for Oklahoma City’s Flaming Lips, despite the fact that they didn’t put out a formal LP. After dropping a set of Christmas tunes recorded with Yoko Ono’s Plastic Ono band, the Flaming Lips recorded a cover of the Beatles’ “I Am The Walrus,” which is probably one of the least surprising covers if we’re talking about bands heavily influenced by acid. Check out the video, produced by DeLo Creative (the Flaming Lips in-house production company led by George Salisburty), after the jump.

If nothing else, it’s definitely the least weird thing the Flaming Lips have done this year. The cover comes in advance of the Lips’ New Year’s Freakout #5 in Oklahoma City, where they’ll cover Beatles tunes with Sean Lennon and Plastic Ono Band. The Flaming Lips next release will come in the form of a gummy frog; as you may recall, this is not the Lips’ first foray into the gummy game.

  1. COO COO KA CHOO LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

  2. I thought no one could cover the Beatles until I heard this. I wish Drozd would get behind the drumset, but he had to make all the weird noises, so I can’t complain.

  3. So incredibly awful. Just awful.

  4. I can’t really figure out if I like that they sing the misinterpretation of “everybody’s got one” that is “everybody smoke pot”

    …anyways it was a pretty bad cover if you ask me

  5. Hey check out (and like) an awesome video interview with the talented singer of The Flaming Lips Wayne Coyne at: http://culturecatch.com/vidcast/wayne-coyne-flaming-lips
