This one’s not for the meek. Nor for the rushed, or those looking for a pleasant listening experience on this rainy Thursday morning. But for the adventurous, who want to know what a Flaming Lips 6-hour song sounds like, check out the track below, separated into three tracks. Much thanks to the diligent folks who ripped this from the vinyl so our ears could be ripped to shreds for six glorious hours.
Based on the enormous success that last year’s 10 Plagues In Song post was, I figured I’d do it all again. This is not an easy task. Finding one song about the death of livestock was hard enough. Searching for a second took some serious digging. But here you have it – the 10 Plauges in Song, Part II.
Update: My blogging protege Aaron has come up with his own indie version of the 10 plagues over at the Sound Co-Op. Check it out. And then check mine below.
