Flaming Lips Drop Heady Nuggs

It might be the dead of winter around here but it’s time to look forward to your favourite new Spring holiday- Record Store Day.  This year’s edition is all ready promising to be the best yet and today the mighty Flaming Lips announced they are set to release a new vinyl box set that will cover the band's work from the early 1990s to early 2000’ s. Titled Heady Nuggs: The First 5 Warner Bros. Records 1992 - 2002, the collection is set for release on Record Store Day, April 16th.

The standard edition of the box will be presented as five 140-gram black vinyl records, while a "special limited edition" version will see the records pressed onto five different colours. The coloured version will reportedly only be available through the group's web store.

Full details have yet to be released but for now the following albums are included in Heady Nuggs: Hit to Death in the Future Head (1992), Transmissions from the Satellite Heart (1993), Clouds Taste Metallic (1995), The Soft Bulletin (1999) and Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots (2002).

Just in case you missed the Lips will be close to home on May 13th when they play the Fillmore.  Rest of the dates from the band’s website are also included.
