Watch: The Flaming Lips perform ‘Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots’ in full
We’re huge fans of the Wayne Coyne-led Flaming Lips. Their music is fun and their live show never disappoints. They are a multi-sensory mindfuck that usually culminates in Coyne crowd-surfing in his infamous blow up ball.
Arguably their best album, “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots” is truly one of the great masterpieces of the last decade. From the memorizing “Do You Realize??” to the catchy “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Part 1″ the album to this day is one of our favorites.
Which is why when I heard that they would be playing the album in full at SXSW I was a bit jealous that I would not be in attendance for the spectacle. Fear not though as video of the performance has been released today for your viewing pleasure. The hour-long event takes you through a journey not to be missed.
Take the time out to watch it—you will not be disappointed. The band is currently touring on their new album “The Terror” so catch them when they stop through a town near you. While you’re at it check out our recent interview with Steven Drozd before the release of their new album.
