Flaming Lips Cover Pink Floyd’s “Eclipse”

During the Q&A session that accompanied the Flaming Lips’ pop-up store/show thing in Los Angeles last week, Wayne “let it slip” that the band had joined forces with Stardeath And White Dwarfs to cover the entire Dark Side Of The Moon LP, featuring guest spots from Peaches and Henry Rollins. At their Friday morning stop at KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, Coyne filled in the gaps a bit — Rollins is doing the voice overs, Peaches offers the “orgasmic” vocal on “The Great Gig In The Sky” — before performing the ’73 classic’s closing piece, “Eclipse.” Skip to 28:30 to hear some of the project’s backstory and that song, or watch the whole thing for performances of “Watching the Planets,” “Convinced of the Hex,” and “I Can Be A Frog.” Wayne does the Rollins bit (“There’s no dark side of the moon really…”), admittedly sounding more like Jimmy Stewart than a Black Flag singer, using lyrics sheets to remind himself of Roger Waters’s lyrics. After that, you get “Enthusiasm For Life Defeats Existential Fear.”

Embryonic is out, and the Lips’ take on Dark Side Of The Moon will be out one day.
