Ever wanted to hear Nick Cave do psycho-sexual spoken word babble over some psychedelic farts conjured up by The Flaming Lips? That’s pretty much what you get – and then some – on ‘You, Man? Human???’, one of several gonzo collaborations on The Flaming Lips And Heady Fwends.
The double album release, pressed in limited qualities on vinyl especially for last week’s Record Store Day, also features a track with Perth’s Tame Impala, a pleasant little nugget of space-pop called ‘Children Of The Moon’. As reported last month, singer Kevin Parker called The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne “deranged” for trying to extract his blood for insertion in a picture disc. We are not making this up.
“If anyone in Paris has any way of extracting blood out of my flesh and into a container without killing me so that I may give it to a deranged psych rocker to put INTO his band's album, then please let me know,” wrote Parker on Tame Impala’s Facebook page.
The Flaming Lips And Heady Fwends is limited to 20,000 copies and will not be repressed.
