Oh, how we miss the hipshaking, floppy hair close-ups of Conan O’Brien from our television sets, and although he’s legally prohibited from being funny from TV until November when he takes over the Tube once more, everyone’s favorite lanky ginger is keeping busy with other side projects to entertain his team of CoCo puffs.
Joined by his favorite ghostly pale musician, O’Brien has recorded a special spoken word album of a Frankenstein classic plus an exclusive interview with the orange-haired giant himself.
Throwing on a surprise concert at Third Man Records in June, Conan O’Brien recorded the live performance while on the road for his “Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour” for a crowd of 300 at the studio. In addition to the live studio release, CoCo recorded an improvised spoken word album of the Frankenstein classic And They Call Me Mad? being released on 7″ vinyl and digitally with a special interview of O’Brien conducted by [lastfm]White Stripes [/lastfm]frontman Jack White on the B side.
The recording of the live performance will feature a collection of rock and rockabilly tunes from Conan and his mountain-man band, with the duet with White on a cover of [lastfm]Eddie Cochran[/lastfm]’s “20 Flight Rock.” Both albums recorded at Third Man Records will be available digitally on iTunes early next week, or for all you old souls looking for a more classic sound, pick up the 7″ vinyl spoken word album on August 24th.
