Original cast recording by the Flaming Lips

We’ve had ABBA, John Lennon, the Who, Billy Joel and the Four Tops made into musicals. So now too are the Flaming Lips.

Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots is turning into a musical, with Aaron Sorkin, creator of The West Wing and the flailing Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, writing the book.

I love Wayne Coyne’s description of the tentative plot, but dude, c’mon — when are you going to finish Christmas on Mars?

    Seriously? That sounds pretty fuckin’ crazy. I’m with you on the X-mas on Mars thing. I remember getting the Yoshimi 5.1 disc like 4 years ago and trippin out at the trailer, then to see him put the thing together on the Flying Freaks documentary was pretty hilarious, now I’m just confused by why it’s taking so long for it to come out… Whatever, it’ll still be out before Chinese Democracy.
