The Flaming Lips, Ke$ha, & New Fumes – “Elizabeth My Dear” (The Stone Roses Cover)

Back in February we wrote about the Flaming Lips and friends' plans for a track-for-track tribute to the Stone Roses' self-titled debut album.

Wayne Coyne Kicked Off Instagram Again

Well, that was fast. In September, Instagram removed the account that belonged to Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne, since Coyne kept violating the site's rules by posting images of naked people and such. (Coyne's response, when our own Chris DeVille asked him about it: "I am OK with that. I understand Instagram ha… More »

Q&A: Wayne Coyne On The New Flaming Lips EPs, Passing Off The Space Bubble To Diplo, And His Rivalry With Arcade Fire

We already spoke to Wayne Coyne once this year and turned him loose on the turntables, but the Flaming Lips have had such a whirlwind 2013 that they merit yet another check-in. Since releasing The Terror, the Lips have been on a tear: They recorded a pair of new EPs: aMore »

Wayne Coyne Kicked Off Instagram

Giving Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne's tendency to throw vast levels of psychedelic nudity up on the internet, it's not a tremendous shock that Instagram has deleted his account. Coyne's already started a new account (and there's already nudity on it), but all the images on his old account are gone. This doesn't sit… More »

Moby – “The Perfect Life” (Feat. Wayne Coyne) Video (NSFW)

Between asking for various specific ridiculous extras and posting footage of themselves performing amidst mostly-naked people, Moby and Wayne Coyne did everything they could to promise a ridiculous music video for their collaboration "The Perfect Life." Today, they deliver. In the video, Moby and Coyne walk through Los Angeles in full mariachi garb,… More »

Watch Moby & Wayne Coyne Play “The Perfect Life” Acoustic On A Roof

So remember that weird casting call that Moby and Wayne Coyne put out for the music video they were making? Well I should say "weird" by Moby standards -- gimp suits and ghost costumes are probably the tamest thing Wayne Coyne has given us this year in the music video department (for example:… More »

The promo-mode Flaming Lips checked into 30 Rock last night to perform Jimmy Fallon once more before Fallon makes the long move to another floor on 30 Rock to host The Tonight Show.

Q&A: Wayne Coyne On The Terror, Ke$ha, And How Not Giving Too Much Of A Shit Is Usually A Good Thing

Given the fact that the Flaming Lips have been a band now for more than thirty years, it's hard to imagine a time without the presence of Wayne Coyne. As one of the most omnipresent and reliably chatty frontmen in rock music, Coyne is seemingly everywhere, all the time. Between the Virgin Mobile television commercial… More »

Turntable Interview: The Flaming Lips

When you name your album The Terror, you better hope your fans are prepared for a dark and twisty album filled with sweetly paranoid tracks built on bewilderingly wild mood swings and bleakly beautiful songs. Luckily, fans of the Flaming Lips wouldn’t expect, or want, anything else. For 30 years, the group has released album… More »

Stream A Medley Of Clips From Flaming Lips’ The Terror

When The Flaming Lips released the first single off The Terror a few weeks ago, it was pretty clear why they considered the album to be so … well, terrifying. "Look … The Sun Is Rising" was noisy and anxious, psychedelic in the most unsettling sense of the word. Now the band has released… More »

Watch Wayne Coyne In A Virgin Mobile Commercial

Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne has really been getting his pitchman reps in lately. First, there was the Hyundai Super Bowl commercial. And now he's the focal point of a trippy-as-fuck Virgin Mobile ad, which feels like maybe the billionth example of Richard Branson attempting to convince his kids that he's cool. Watch it… More »
