Gnarls Barkley on The Tonight Show

I just watched the Tonight Show, which had an overabundance of animals, Brendan Fraiser ( looking handsome but rather crosseyed) and Gnarls Barkley, who did a brilliant rendition of "Who's Gonna Save My Soul?", my absolute favorite song from the new album. It was haunting and exquisite, and the stage craft reminded me of shows in Savannah and Atlanta, a cross between hiphop and steam punk. If you were there in Savannah or Atlanta in the late 1990s then you know what I mean. It was simply brilliant, and it was far too short, but hey.

Let's hear it for all the Afro-Avant Gardistes!

Here are some examples of the Brilliance that is Gnarls Barkley:



And then:



I couldn't help but think of Kindred.

Get the album, now!

Damn. Is there no way to see this footage? I remember that performance--it was amazing-- and can't find it anywhere. NBC/Universal seem to be too thorough. Ugh.
