In the wee early hours of September 13th The Flaming Lips finished creating ”I Found a Star on the Ground” – better known as their “ six hour song .”
Exactly one week after its completion, Wayne Coyne personally sold the band’s first batch of Strobo Light Toys at Portland’s Jackpot Records .
“I Found A Star On The Ground” features the names of individuals who donated $100 to the Oklahoma Humane Society and the Academy of Contemporary of Music , and two additional, much shorter songs, “Butterfly, How Long Does It Take to Die” and “Evil Minds”, are being sold alongside a limited-edition Strobo Trip Light Phase Illusion Toy.
