I Love Livin' on the Death Star



Star Wars (1995 "Faces" VHS).


Live...For the Record by Fear. 1986 concert from punk's infamous button-pushers, recorded for some radio broadcast and released on CD in 1991. The usual naughty language is danced around (a slight disappointment since no one delivers obscenities quite like singer Lee Ving), but musically the band is in top form. If I were stranded on Ellis Island and could only have one Fear album uploaded to my iPod, this would be it.


- R2-D2 falls over in the canyon, a victim of the Jawa's blaster, right after the line "trip and fall at their house" is heard in "What Are Friends For?"

- "Welcome to the Dust Ward" starts as the Jawas are seen hauling R2-D2 to the sandcrawler.

- R2-D2 is seen hobbling through the interior of the sandcrawler as the line "I'm in the dust ward" is repeatedly heard in "Welcome to the Dust Ward."

- The line "you're gonna die before your time has come" in "We Gotta Get Out of This Place" coincides with R5-D4 exploding as he rolls toward Luke.

- The chorus of "We Gotta Get Out of This Place" is heard as Luke complains about being stuck on Tatooine to C-3PO.

- One member of Fear is heard saying, "You have to see it to believe it" between songs as Luke looks in amazement at the ignited lightsaber.

- The line "let's have a war" in "Let's Have a War" coincides with Vader Force-choking Admiral Motti in the Death Star conference room after he questions the Dark Lord of the Sith's powers and abilities.


More than I expected to get with this one. Not much else I can say other than ONETWOTHREEFOUR, ONETWOTHREEFOUR!
