The Flaming Lips played a show at NYC’s Terminal 5 last night, but during the day they filled in for the Plastic Ono Band on the Late Show with David Letterman. That’s right, Yoko Ono and son Sean Lennon were joined by the Flaming Lips for an interesting performance of what might be the scariest peace song ever written, “Cheshire Cat Cry.” Lips’ frontman Wayne Coyne was obviously saving his talents for his own performance that night, as he opted to sit on the floor and make noises with a bullhorn. No matter what your take on experimental art rock, you’ve go to hand it to Yoko Ono for managing to live 80 years without ever taking a singing lesson. Sitting through the performance is worth it just to hear Letterman’s joke at the end.
