The skull’s the thing!
By Fred Mills
Got $5000 to spare? That’ll get you the new Flaming Lips
album, or more accurately, their new 24-hour “song” titled “7 Skies H3.” As the
picture suggests, there’s a small hard drive encased in an actual human skull.
But act fast – only 13 copies reportedly have been made.
Or if you are not quite so well-heeled you can simply listen
to it streaming over at the band’s FlamingLipsTwentyFourHours.com.
Fascinatingly, at the moment this news item is being
written, 977 people are listening to the track (so the counter at the Lips site
indicates), with a maximum of 999 allowed at any given time. Not sure what all
that means, come to think of it.
