(hennemusic) Pink Floyd are streaming video of a rare 1968 Belgian TV performance of "Astronomy Domine", the opening track from their 1967 debut, "The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn."

The group's appearance on the Brussels TV program, "Tienerklanken", in February of 1968 saw new addition David Gilmour on guitar in place of outgoing founding member Syd Barrett, whose departure from the lineup wouldn't be officially announced until early April of that year.

The trip to Brussels, Belgium in mid-February 1968 also led to the filming of a second video for "The Scarecrow", with bassist Roger Waters lip-syncing Barrett's vocals as the group mimed the song in the city's Parc de Laeken (Laeken Park).

"Piper" reached No. 6 on the UK charts and No. 131 on the US Billboard 200 upon its original release. Watch the video here.
