The flashback-inducing psychedelia of the Flaming Lips just got an official mainstream seal of approval: Lead art-agitator Wayne Coyne told Rolling Stone that he is in talks to turn his band’s last record, a concept album entitled Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, into a Broadway musical. (For a band that routinely played with Justin Timberlake in a rabbit costume, this isn’t much of a stretch.) Producer Des McAnuff (Jersey Boys) will help adapt the record for the stage. No word yet on whether or not the Playbill will be printed on blotter paper. Would you pay to do acid . . . we mean, see the Lips on the Great White Way?
