Wayne Coyne (@waynecoyne) of The Flaming Lips (@theflaminglips) is one of my favorite people to follow on Twitter. The band’s frontman and all around freak keeps a running diary of his everyday life through the various pictures and videos he almost constantly tweets. Lately he’s been keeping his followers apprised of the process of adding blood to a special limited edition vinyl pressing of their 2012 Record Store Day released The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends. The 13 track, double LP features a slew of guest artists who donated blood samples to Coyne for inclusion in the super limited edition of the record. Thanks to Coyne’s tweets we can see how the process went down.
Did you score a copy of The Flaming Lips and Heady Frewnds on Record Store Day? The album is a stellar blend of spacy and groovy psychedelic rock, and the guests make the record a must hear. With or without blood, track down a copy if you can.
