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).
The final pre-major label album from the Flaming Lips brought a huge shift in sound that would define their work over the greater part of the next decade. The first album to feature Mercury Rev's Jonathan Donahue on guitar, In A Priest Driven Ambulance features more structured songwriting and tighter production. Singer Wayne Coyne's lyrical wit and insight had never been better, as his obsession with religious imagery moved to the forefront.
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.
