As expected, last night’s Pink Floyd tribute on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon dug a little deeper than the previous two (here and here). MGMT, a band who seem like they’ve seen The Wall a time or two, dug out “Lucifer Sam.” The Syd Barrett-penned tune first appeared on Floyd’s 1967 debut The Piper at the Gates of Dawn and hasn’t been heard much from since.

They appeared dressed as Maine lobstermen – traps and all – as they indulged their most psychedelic impulses. Well, except for Bradford Cox, who shows up to reprise his Joey Ramone impression (because why not?). Watch MGMT’s performance below. If you’re outside the U.S., watch it here.
