Pullin’ ‘Tubes: Come To The Dark Side

Late last year, Oklahoma’s favorite psychedelic rockers The Flaming Lips released their unique, acid-drenched take on Pink Floyd’s seminal album – Dark Side Of The Moon – with help from Henry Rollins, Peaches and Wayne Coyne’s nephew’s band Stardeath & White Dwarfs. The album, which was the band’s second release of 2009 along with Embryonic (which landed at #5 on our Top 25 albums list), was re-released this weekend as part of Record Store Day on limited edition sea-foam green vinyl and was one of more buzzed about must-have items of the day to snatch up.

The band, who will be performing Dark Side in its entirety at select dates this summer, will kick the tour off in a major way with a special late-night set at Bonnaroo – which will feature a full set of Lips music, followed by a full rendering of the classic album sometime around 2:30 AM. To celebrate the special vinyl release Coyne & Co. with stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last Friday to perform their enthusiastic take on Breathe…

The Flaming Lips kicked off a short spring run, which will focus more on material from Embryonic, last night at the famed Barton Hall and will hit the stage tonight for a sold out show at the Wellmont Theater in Montclair, NJ.

  1. Very nice one from Fallon; he’s really brought a great music sensibility to late night. I did get one of the limited LPs at Other Music in NYC on Record Store Day, then saw the Lips up in Poughkeepsie that night. Very good weekend for a Lips fan!
