Remastered from the Original 1/4" Analog Tape Masters by Longtime Producer David Fridmann with the Band's Wayne Coyne and Michael Ivins

The Flaming Lips have pushed the envelope and bent boundaries for more than two decades with the band's Grammy-winning music and ground-breaking concerts. In 2018, Rhino and Warner Bros. Records will celebrate Oklahoma's most famous freaks with an ambitious reissue program, kicking off with remastered editions of the joyous weirdness the band recorded for Restless Records between 1984 and 1990 before signing with Warner Bros. in 1991 including Hear It Is (1986), Oh My Gawd!!!...The Flaming Lips (1987), Telepathic Surgery (1989) and In A Priest Driven Ambulance (With Silver Sunshine Stares) (1990).

Following in the grand tradition of other great Southwestern psych bands such 13th Floor Elevators and The Red Krayola, The Flaming Lips' mind bending 1986 debut, Hear It Is mixed punk, country & western, psychedelia, goth, and pure bar-band rock and roll into their own curious creation on classics such "Jesus Shootin' Heroin" "Trains, Brains, & Rain" and "Charlie Manson Blues." Sharing the weird, slanted pop sensibility of contemporaries like Meat Puppets and Butthole Surfers, this early masterpiece continues to influence bands to this day. Indeed, the punk rockers were finally taking acid.

Remastered from the original 1/4" analog tape masters by the band's longtime musical foil and producer, David Fridmann, with help from the Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne and Michael Ivins.
