Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips kicks off the second half of his “Record Store Tour” this week (Feb. 8, in NYC) during which he is meeting and greeting fans and signing copies of The Flaming Lips 1st EP. He will alo be selling an extremely Limited Edition version of the 12″ EP which is housed with a hand-crafted, custom-made solid chocolate skull (anatomically correct and life-sized). Each skull contains a special Gold Coin that is redeemable as admission to any headline show by the Lips – in the world. See below for all of Coyne’s upcoming tour stops.
We are advised: “This product contains quite a substantial amount of high-quality, gourmet chocolate accompanied by the main course: A generous earful of the very earliest music created by THE FLAMING LIPS in their original incarnation and pressed onto color vinyl. A feast for all the senses, we’re pretty sure you’ll find this exclusive item delicious and satisfying on every level.”

Also appearing on the bill: Tegan and Sara, Yoko Ono, Imagine Dragons, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Cold War Kids, Cake, Colbie Caillat, Blondie, The Fray, Bob Geldof with special address by members of Pussy Riot, introduced by Madonna.
