According to Amazon.com, At War With the Mystics will be released April 4th. I heard the first single, The WAND, yesterday on live365.com and it sounded incredibly tasty and unmistakably Lips. These guys are doing Oklahoma City proud!

man, are they good...

i don't know how they could top Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots or The Soft Bulletin, but i'll sure give the new one a try..

also, make sure and check out the new DVD 5.1 release of The Soft Bulletin, i already have the one for Yoshimi and it's unbelievably good

You are not alone. Big fan due to college friends from Oklahoma who pimped them since we were freshmen in '92.

If you haven't seen Fearless Freaks (http://imdb.com/title/tt0441758/), btw, it's definitely worth a watch. Wayne is a very, very strange (but cool) man.

Back in High school I regularly played street football with the younger brother of Lips drummer/guitar/keyboard player Steve Drozd

I have Telepathic Surgery, Yoshimi, and Soft Bulletin. My GF has Clouds Taste Metallic and maybe one other one. I really enjoy them and enjoyed the 2 live shows I saw of theirs. Wayne at Coachella was in this big inflated bubble walking on the crowd. Pretty cool tho it took up about half of their performance time.
