Flaming Lips Perform David Bowie Classic On Colbert

(Radio.com) Days after releasing an official music video for their cover of David Bowie's "Space Oddity," The Flaming Lips performed the song live on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

The avant-garde production emphasizes just how strongly Bowie influenced the band's aesthetic. In his introduction, Colbert quipped, ""My next guests hail from space…or Oklahoma."

Frontman Wayne Coyne wore an LED sequined scarf, which lit like a Christmas tree, and once again the Lips were joined by Chewbacca for the extraterrestrial tribute flung from a galaxy far, far away. Appearing on Chewie's shoulders has become a regular thing for Flaming Lips vocalist--at a Carnegie Hall Bowie tribute this month, the Star Wars icon made a similar appearance for the Lips cover of "Life on Mars."
