A Pink Floyd song that I’d never heard before

Stranger things have happened, though they’re few and far between.

“Moonhead” is a spooky, ethereal jam that fits perfectly into Pink Floyd’s late-1960s/early-70s oeuvre. And it happened to be performed live on the BBC at 10pm on 20 July 1969 at same time the Apollo 11 astronauts were orbiting and walking on the moon.

David Gilmour’s account of the performance is on The Guardian, complete with a YouTubed copy of a bootleg of the song with overdubbed video. (Can you overdub video?)
