|« The Six Hour Song||I can't wait »|
This may be their craziest idea yet.
I was actually planning to buy one of these strobe light toys they've been working on before they announced it would come with a six-hour song.
(Here's a video of a working Strobotop™ put out by another company)
So the Flaming Lips version will be like that, but with an assortment of weird drawings by Wayne Coyne. I think it looks awesome.
I'm not so sure about this six-hour song, though. I'm willing to try just about any kind of experimental music, but this is something I wouldn't even be able to hear all in one sitting (who has that kind of time?). And now I find out that this ridiculously long song is going to be filled with The Flaming Lips reading off a list of random people's names. That sounds about as much fun as watching the ending credits for The Return of the King Extended Edition.
I still want the toy, though.
Thanks for the info.
