The Flaming Lips have a new, limited edition photo book available, Waking Up With A Placebo Head Wound: Images Of The Flaming Lips From The Archives Of Jay Blakesberg And J. Michelle Martin-Coyne - 1987-2004

The more exciting news on that page is the upcoming re-release of 1999's The Soft Bulletin remixed in 5.1 Surround. I have the Yoshimi 5.1 DVD and it's a trippy experience to sit in the middle of my couch and hear the music swirl from speaker to speaker. Makes you wonder why more bands don't try the 5.1 thing.

Jim DeRogatis of the Sun-Times is working on a book, Staring At Sound: The True Story Of Oklahoma's Fabulous Flaming Lips, due for release next fall.
