Pay Money & Get Featured In A New Flaming Lips Track
Always wanted a famous rock n roll back to talk about you within their lyrics? Well, it's not too late. This may be your chance (kind of).
Flaming Lips are offering fans the chance to have their names included on a new track lasting six whole hours, all in the name of charity. Yes, 6 hours.
It costs just $100 (Rs 4,600) to join the Lips on Found a Star on the Ground, a track they began recording about a week ago. "Takes a long time to make a six hour song," frontman Wayne Coyne tweeted. At a website set up by the band, interested parties can donate to the Oklahoma Humane Society and the University of Central Oklahoma's Academy of Contemporary Music, guaranteeing themselves a part in musical history. There is yet no word on how many people have donated so far, but if Coyne can sing one name every two seconds, the song will only have room for 10,800.
All this is part of the bands ongoing mission to do things differently and not go along the "boring old way" of making albums. They have spent 2011 on a variety of one-off song projects, including team-ups with Prefuse 73, Neon Indian and Lightning Bolt.
