Details

ZAIREEK is not mobile. It is not personal. It is not solitary, cannnot be easily controlled, and cannot be easily consumed in small doses. So another way to think fo ZAIREEKA is as a one-off piece of technology that comes in a highly inconvenient dead-end format, which is a rather extraordinary kind of thing for a rock band to make. The Flaming Lips' 1997 album ZAIREEKA is one of the most peculiar albums every recorded, consisting of four CDs meant to be played simultaneously on four CD players. Approaching this powerful and complex art-rock masterpiece from multiple angles, Mark Richardson's prismatic study of ZAIREEKA mirrors the structure of the work itself. Thoughts on communal listening and the "death of the album" are interspersed with the story of ZAIREEKA's creation (with assistance from Wayne Coyne) and in in-depth analysis of the music, leading to a complete picture of a record that proved to be a watershed for both the band and adventurous music fans alike. Keep up with 33 1/3 series news.
