Flaming Lips hail resurgence of vinyl

Electric guitar player Wayne Coyne has welcomed the surge of interest in vinyl records among music fans.

The emergence of CDs and internet downloads had led to traditional 33s and 45s falling by the wayside, but they seem to be coming back into favour.

Coyne, who fronts US-based rock group The Flaming Lips, has hailed this as a positive development.

Speaking to Reuters, he said vinyl records offer music lovers things that digital downloads can not, such as posters and colourful packaging.

"Even if you're 16 years old, your parents probably have vinyl somewhere," Coyle commented.

"There's probably some trigger of another time, an exotic world where this was the way you bought music."

However, Coyle admitted that it is hard to predict how long the renewed interest in vinyl will last.

Jim Penistan, owner of a record shop in Lincoln, has credited artists such as The White Stripes for driving demand for vinyl records and turntables.

He told the Lincolnshire Echo that the band have been among those to put out their new releases in this format, along with The Strokes.
