Published Sep 29, 2011As you know from the previous Pink Floyd covers posted in our Click Hear section by the Shins and Foo Fighters, Jimmy Fallon's weeklong tribute to the renowned rock band is getting a lot of buzz. Now check out MGMT performing the Floyd cut "Lucifer Sam."
The Brooklyn psychedelic rock duo played "Lucifer Sam" last night (September 29) as a tribute to Pink Floyd's original songwriter Syd Barrett. The 1967 track, off The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, had the boys of MGMT sporting an oceanic theme, complete with fisherman attire, rope, a bubble machine and a (hopefully) fake lobster. Also, Deerhunter's Bradford Cox was there dressed as, um, Joey Ramone.
