Neil Gaiman Joins Amanda Palmer, Moby and Stephen Merritt for ‘Rocky Horror Show’ Cover [Video]

CBS’ The Late, Late Show has been admired by alternative music fans since the days of Craig Kilborn, the host who took over the late night talk show from TV legend Tom Snyder and turned it into a variety hour that welcomed cult favorite guests like Morrissey and Pet Shop Boys. Current host Craig Ferguson has continued that tradition and then some, as demonstrated by the performance earlier this week of an uncommonly eclectic nerd supergroup: Amanda Palmer of punk cabaret band the Dresden Dolls, electronic music mainstay Moby, and indie pop icon Stephen Merritt of The Magnetic Fields. As variously nerdy and obscure as that assemblage is, it gets even better: the group performed a cover version of the distinctly geeky “Science Fiction Double Feature” from The Rocky Horror Show, itself a counter-culture institution and a track that references numerous nerd favorites. But if that weren’t enough, the band was joined on keys by none other than bestselling comic book writer Neil Gaiman (also Palmer’s husband).

Check out this memorably quirky performance after the cut.
