Episode 18 – Disco Star Wars

website-banner-hulk

Podcasts are dropping left and right analyzing the latest Star Wars blockbuster, The Last Jedi. But one major plot point that’s not being discussed in all these podcasts is, “What happened to that Star Wars disco record?”

On this episode, we’re taking it back to the funky Seventies to talk about the brief era where John Williams’ iconic themes were slapped and slathered with a jazzy disco sheen. We also go in depth on the album below by noted* jazz funk surf legends, the Jeff Wayne Space Shuttle. If you have any desire to listen to some, err, interesting interpretations on the Star Trek, Planet of the Apes TV show as well as the Superman and Batman themes, check out this blog post from 2012 that has a link to access .mp3 files of the entire album.

* – by noted, we mean completely forgotten
