The Flaming Lips - Soft Bulletin Competition

Thursday 9th June, 2011

Don't Look Back Album Competition to celebrate
The Flaming Lips performing The Soft Bulletin in London on 1st July - On Sale Now!


On the 1st July ATP Concerts are very proud to present as part of the Don't Look Back season The Flaming Lips performing their legendary Soft Bulletin album live in it's entirety at London's Alexandra Palace. When it was released in 1999, The Soft Bulletin topped more than 60 year-end Best Of lists in 1999, including Uncut, NME, and Rockdelux. Pitchfork gave it a rare 10.0 rating and later judged it as the 3rd best album of the 1990s (only beaten by My Bloody Valentine's Loveless and Radiohead's OK Computer). The NME gave it 9/10 and said "The combination of the emotional and experimental is more touching and wonderful than it's ever been on any Flaming Lips record in the past. It's some achievement."

The Flaming Lips will be supported by two other acts performing classic albums - Dinosaur Jr with Bug and Deerhoof with Milk Man. Tickets are on sale now from this link.

Today we can give you a chance to win a bundle of all three albums on CD - all you have to do is email us at feedback@atpfestival.com listing your ideal Three Band x Don't Look Back Concert - and tell us why! Finalists will be published on our site, with winners announced on Monday.

If you don't want to take part in choosing some albums but still quite fancy winning the three album set - we will also be putting anyone who buys tickets to the event from now until midnight tomorrow Friday 10th June into a draw to win a couple of the sets!


To tie into their just announced London shows, here's a nice Youtube link to hear Iron & Wine covering Waitin' For A Superman from The Soft Bulletin.
