184 Page Flaming Lips Photo Retrospective To Launch

The Flaming Lips’ official Web site will be the sole source for the photo collection “Waking Up With a Placebo Head Wound: Images of the Flaming Lips From the Archives of Jay Blakesberg and J. Michelle Martin-Coyne — 1987-2004.” The 184-page book will be limited to 1,500 copies, housed in a handmade box and autographed by the band.

In addition to comments from the photographers, “Waking Up” sports essays from band members Michael Ivins and Steven Drozd, manager Scott Booker and publicist Rick Gershon plus an introduction by vocalist Wayne Coyne.

Fans who pre-order the book by Nov. 12 will receive a limited-edition 7-inch single featuring two songs earmarked for the soundtrack to the Lips’ film “Christmas on Mars,” due for release in late 2005.

As previously reported, the Lips will cap 2004 with a New Year’s Eve concert at New York’s Madison Square Garden alongside Wilco and Sleater-Kinney.
