What Inspired you guys to start a Star Wars Band?
Technically- George Lucas.
Are you all fans? And if so, do any of you collect any of the Toys and
Yeah, definitely all fans. None of us really collect many of the toys.
Isaac has all of the Star Wars Pez dispensers, and has an enormous
collection of the Star Wars card game, though he no longer plays. We
definitely appreciate all of the Toys and Collectibles and the culture
By looking around My Space it looks like most of you guys are in your
early 20's so you missed all of the original releases in the theatres, how
did you come to love the movies we all hold near and dear to our hearts?
Its Star Wars. The movies are timeless, though apparently some people felt
they could be *ahem* made a bit MORE timeless. We definitely were all
hooked long before the rereleases and any of the new trilogy. A long time
ago (before DVD) in a galaxy far far away (called VHS).
Who writes your lyrics? Some of them are quite deep like "I've been
through the fire and I've been through hell I was only a man, now I'm only
a shell." And "And how do I show, I'm a human being, Flesh and blood, not
a killing machine? I am a stormtrooper, I'm not a robot!"
Isaac and Nate write all of the lyrics. Deep emotions, funny moments,
everything lyrics should be- it can all be found in the realm of Star
Wars. We try to represent not just the main story shown in the films, but
the underlying stories of the extended galaxy- Greedo, the space slug, and
the idea that there are other Wookiees other than Chewie. (Nate lets
out a Wookiee roar).
Are you guys working on any tunes you can share with us?
We have a classic rock, Zeppelin-like song in the works about glitterstim
called "High On Spice". It starts with a really dark, moody build, with
Nate telling the most epic of tales about a glitterstim trip. The
breakdown is great. We also have another song about Boba Fett (finally!),
still untitled. There's another idea for a song about the moment in Cloud
City where everything comes together. Vader is going to freeze Han, Boba
Fett has finally won in his rivalry with Solo, Leia and Chewie are there.
Leia says, "I love you". Han says "I know", then gets frozen. SO AWESOME.
Anywhere our readers can come see you? Are you just doing local gigs in
Yeah, for right now we're just playing in and around Cambridge and Boston.
We're hoping to start playing shows outside of the state, if there's a gig
and an audience who wants us... and a way to get there. We'd love to play
at Celebration IV *wink wink*.
What is the band's favorite Star War Movie?
Empire. Nate says Jedi. Isaac thinks he's wrong. (Nate punches Isaac).
OK, its not one of the new ones.
Thanks for taking the time to talk with us and we hope that you will have
success in the future. Is there anything you would like to add or
