If you've never listened to one of their albums - do yourself a favor and give these a try:
Transmissions from the Satellite Heart
The Soft Bulletin
Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots

"Do You Realize" i love! So to the point.
Other 2 songs from album I always skip to are "Fight Test" and "are You a Hypnotist?"
They class the FLaming Lips as new-age/experimental music. It takes a couple of listens to get into it. Don't expect rocking anthems. Bit more electronic/weird sounds, but cool enough. Give it a try.
Also, if you listen to BBC Radio1, if you go to the "listen again" link, you can listen about why they formed, afew of theirs songs etc.
Listen when your in a chilled/anxious mood. I also have a few on my "making love" playlist.
They did a feckin awesome cover of war pigs on jools holland a while back. will see if i can dig it up.
Yoshimi Battle the Pink Robots, Pt. 1 and the yeah yeah yeah song got me into them.
i learnt about them after watching a set they did at Glastonbury on TV, when there were loads of people dressed in fancy-dress animal costumes. Very cool.
Just downloading the other albums now. Let me know if you find the Jools Holland thing, i cant find it. Though, i havent looked.
Glad to see you still exist BD. If the FLaming Lips sustain your existence, then fair fucks to them!
