You like me because I’m a scoundrel…
Oh WOW! Today Distracted by Star Wars embedded the song “Scoundrel” by the band Twin Sister. They were a Star Wars-inspired funk band (yes, really) that performed SW-related song in full costume. (Their original name was “Boba Fett,” but Lucas made them change it.) I actually saw them perform in the summer of 1996! I went to the Cornerstone Festival (which, as you might imagine, is a story unto itself) and they were performing in one of the smaller side tents. I remember them playing “Scoundrel,” a song “about racism” called “We Don’t Serve Their Kind Here,” a song about Cloud City, etc. I loved them so much I bought their cassette and played the heck out of it for a year. Then I lost it. A few years later, I actually found it at an ex-boyfriend’s place and the bastard had TAPED OVER IT. So I haven’t heard any of these songs in over eleven years…
