For those of you not yet indoctrinated in the cult, The Flaming Lips are worth worshiping.
The Oklahoma City group is as well known for their sound, existing somewhere between 60's acid psychedelia and futuristic peace rock, as they are for their over-the-top stage show which has lead them to be considered one of the most important bands to see live before leaving this earth (and traveling on a beam of light energy that leads to stars unknown). For those of you who haven't witnessed the Lips in person may wonder why such praise, but the truth is that they produce one of the most amazing spectacles not induced through chemical assistance.
Before going into the cover Wayne discussed how Devo, in not being afraid to be weird and make the music they wanted to, was heavily influential to what would become The Flaming Lips. They promised to continue this tradition and dedicated the song that night to Bob No. 2. It was a fitting tribute, an amazing performance, and an amazing night.
Attached is a video shot by the band performing the song (seven months before Casale passed). Apparently they've been performing it at almost every recent performance. Doesn't make it any less special.
Till Then...twist away,
