The Flaming Lips Played Conan, Insanity Ensued - Video

The Flaming Lips' Embryonic dropped yesterday, and by all accounts the double-record behemoth is a striking success. We have yet to give it the full once over here at HAD, but we did manage to catch the band on Conan last night, and if the performance is any indication, these guys are more than ready to deliver on their new material.

The performance was a psyched out rave up of the tune "Watching The Planets", and was a pretty damn good example of the band's return to their rawer roots that has been being mentioned in so many reviews. While Karen O wasn't on hand for the tune (as she is on the recorded version), the band was playing as a somewhat epic six piece, complete with flashing gong. Check out the video above.

The Flaming Lips will be at the Treasure Island Festival this weekend.
