For our March 2019 session we celebrate The Flaming Lips classic “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robot”! The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne is a genius, equal parts Thomas Edison and P.T. Barnum. Like Edison, Coyne is a relentless tinkerer, a visionary experimenteur with a sci-fi fetish and a soft spot for odd technologies. And like Barnum, Coyne is a consummate showman– the hand puppets, the boombox orchestras, the oddball short films, the radio-controlled headphones. After the one-two punch of ‘Zaireeka’ and ‘The Soft Bulletin’, ‘Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots’ is a bold and inventive work, brimming with ideas and sublime moments of brilliance.
