I caught the last 20 seconds because I was over on Leno watching the hottie from the Office (rowr).

Anyway, what I heard sounded really good. Wayne was actually singing in a voice we haven't heard in years... hopefully this new record will have some gonads. From what I've read so far, I'm really psyched for next week..

I personally thought it sounded pretty bad, but the reviews on the flaming lips yahoo group were good. I prefer the album version. But this album is REALLY good, they're playing as a band again, instead of being more of a studio creation.

Hmmm...I've only heard W.A.N.D. and Mr. Ambulance Driver - both I liked. W.A.N.D. especially - a great little noise song keep with the Lip's tradition.

Can't wait for Tuesday!

What song did they do on Letterman?

I caught their set at the Langerado Music Festival. The most fun I've had a show in a while. The did Bohemian Rhapsody and had the entire crowd singing. In the beginning, Wayne Coyne came out on top of the crowd in a bubble. They were just a lot of fun.

Haha. This is exactly what happened to me. I saw the late night schedule and knew that the Lips would be on Letterman, but I wanted to see Jenna Fischer on Leno because I'm a big fan of The Office. And after her interview ended it slipped my mind to change the channel to see the Lips and I muted the TV and went back to listening to my brand new K701's.

A similar problem occured the night before when Yeah Yeah Yeahs were performing on Letterman and The Strokes on Leno. Generally I would pick to see YYY's anyday over The Strokes, but The Strokes played "You Only Live Once" and I actually really dig that song. It turned out OK though because the YYY's started slightly earlier so I got to see the majority of both performances.
