The Flaming Lips are known for their eccentric and at times, bizarre nature. So, it probably comes as a surprise to no one that the band have pressed a limited edition record filled with pink beer.
The beer, named Dragon & YumYums, was brewed in collaboration with Dogfish Head for Record Store Day.
The beer also serves as the inspiration for the two songs on the Flaming Lips vinyl; The Story Of Yum Yum and Dragon and Pouring Beer In Your Ear (The Beer Song).
According to the brewery’s website, the beer is a balance of sweetness and resinous flavour. With piney and tropical aromas, this is a drink paired perfectly with a serving of psychedelic rock.
Weird and wonderful vinyl releases are no oddity for the band, who previously released a Gummy series which saw records filled with blood and soap in the shape of a foetus.
The group are releasing just 100 of these records. Unfortunately, Australians will need to venture as far as Guestroom Records in Oklahoma City to grab a copy.
