Pork Jawa



Star Wars (1995 "Faces" VHS).


Pork Soda by Primus. Dark, creepy, bass-heavy dirges featuring the occasional banjo break. Unbelievably, this record debuted at #7 on the Billboard charts in 1993. I fired 'er up right after the second drumroll in the 20th Century Fox fanfare.


- Darth Vader's first appearance coincides with the bass-only ending of "My Name is Mud."

- While Vader is choking that guy aboard the Tantive IV, the line "we don't need feebleness in this proximity" is heard in "Welcome to This World."

- The slow part of "Welcome to This World" coincides with the escape pod shooting into space.

- The tension builds in "Nature Boy" as Luke discovers that R2-D2 is missing; the song quiets back down as the film cuts to the Lars homestead the next day.

- The camera is on Obi-Wan as we hear the line "don't see the sun much these days" in "Pressman."

- Right before Obi-Wan reveals to Luke that he wants him to come to Alderaan, we hear the line "I've got something to say" (I'm not entirely sure what song this occurred in).

- As Luke is piloting his landspeeder towards the Lars homestead, the lyric "let's cruise the bastard boat" in "Mr. Krinkle" is heard.

- Luke is looking upon his dead Aunt and Uncle when we hear the lyric "C'mon, Mr. Krinkle, tell me why" in "Mr. Krinkle."

- We hear "tell me why" again as Vader is about to torture Princess Leia.

- The lyric "it's incredibly hot in here" in "The Air is Getting Slippery" is heard as Luke and C-3PO enter the cantina.

- During Luke's scuffle with Walrus Man, the lyric "the boy ain't worth a..." in "The Air is Getting Slippery" is heard.


If Jawas were real, I think they'd listen to Primus.
