The Flaming Lips Hit To Death In The Future Head LP
Remastered by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering!
Hit to Death in the Future Head is The Flaming Lips' fifth album and their
debut album on Warner Bros. Records released on August 5, 1992.
Recorded in 1991 by the same lineup that had featured on In a Priest Driven
Ambulance, the album's release was delayed for nearly a year due to the use of a
sample from Michael Kamen's score for the film Brazil in the track "You Have to
Be Joking (Autopsy of the Devil's Brain)", which required a lengthy clearance
process. During the intervening period, both Nathan Roberts and Jonathan Donahue
left the band (the latter resuming his duties in Mercury Rev). By the time of
the album's release both Steven Drozd and Ronald Jones had joined, and performed
on the subsequent tour.
