Flaming Lips Updates: March of 1,000 Flaming Skeletons, Christmas on Mars Release

By RICHARD GINTOWT

In his ongoing quest to rewrite the book of spectacle, Flaming Lips bandleader Wayne Coyne has blasted boomboxes in parking garages, crowd-surfed in a giant hamster ball, obliterated the Oklahoma confetti supply and worn out more white suits than Puff Daddy.

Last Halloween he out-insaned his own insanity by gathering a horde of hundreds in downtown Oklahoma City and fitting them with skeleton costumes and torches. The resulting March of 1,000 Flaming Skeletons parade probably scared the bejeezus out of the folks at the nearby Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill.
