The Flaming Lips gave their fans a one-of-a-kind Christmas present this year by releasing a couple of archival recordings to select indie shops. The 2nd Cassette Demo from 1983 has been put online for all to hear and we’re quite shocked by the tracks.
They’re not your regular psychedelic rock tracks that we’ve come to know and love by the eccentric band. They’re actually aggressive and true to the roots of punk, but perhaps they’ve done this to ease the listeners into new music that may be coming our way from the band? Who knows!
Check out the entire A-side that includes, “The Flaming Lips Theme Song 1983” and “The Future is Gone”. Below you’ll find the B-side which features “Real Fast Words” and “Underground Pharmacist”.
