Every second of the Flaming Lips experience is an intoxicating fever dream—from the spaced out melodies and hazy guitars of Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots to the uncharted dusky terrain of their latest album, The Terror. If you’ve ever watched frontman Wayne Coyne crowdsurf inside a giant plastic bubble at one of their ethereal live shows or hooked up four stereos to give a spin to Zaireeka, an album of four discs meant to be played simultaneously, you know: No band blends psychedelic imagination and pop euphoria quite like The Flaming Lips.
Channel the mind-bending trip that is The Flaming Lips to create a weird, wonderful t-shirt design.
Take cues from the sunny optimism of “Do You Realize?” and “Race for the Prize,” the immersive shadows of The Terror, or the acid-streaked elements of their legendary live shows to design a tee worthy of Wayne & co.
Be fearless, freaked out, absurd—anything but conventional.
The incredibly talented Lucius stopped by recently to play a few songs for us at Threadless HQ, and we wanted to share this amazing performance with all of you.
We had goosebumps, people. GOOSEBUMPS!
