    yeah, it was a good gig, well worth the twnety pingers and a mid week excurison.

    I have newfound respect for Goldenhorse, who are just brilliant. Betchadupa surprised me the most with the sheer ferocity of their performance and Evermore are the best thing out of Fielding in years.

    PanAm were okay, just a bit formulaic in the fact all their songs sound the same. Augustino piked and Pluto, well, i just can't seem to get into them. The lead singer throws me; his voice is really powerful and has a great range but it's just bit too slow and kitch for me.

    I also got to stand next to Bic Runga, who is actually very good looking and smiled at me, making me all aflutter.

    :D

    I can see I'll be off to Real Groovy this weekend....

    nice! Yea $20 bucks sounds like a great price for such a gig. And and as well as the bands a genuine smile from a lovely lady tops off a good night then eh?

    Anyone wanting half an hour or so of free entertainment should go and see The Brunettes play an in-store at Real Groovy Records on Friday night at 6:30pm.

    Kai ... glad you liked Goldenhorse, they're great. I think Kirsten has a real presence on stage, and has a lovely voice. I've talked to her a couple of times and she seems really nice too ...

    Yea, I heard on Channel Z the coleman sessions and James had the Brunettes playing. Not too bad, a real laxed out band with laxed out music and lyrics.

    This sort of fits here ... it was posted to one of the Star Wars Usenet Newsgroups. I don't really know the original song, so I've no idea if it tracks properly with the music, but ...

    Fr8er Boi
    Avril Lavigne and the Max Rebo Band

    He was a boy
    She was a girl
    Can i make it any more obvious
    He flew a ship
    She stole some plans
    What more can i say
    He wanted her
    She'd never tell secretly she wanted him as well
    But all of her friends
    Stuck up their nose
    They had a problem with his scruffy clothes

    He was a freighter boy
    He said see you later boy
    This was not his little raid
    She had a pretty face
    But his head was up in space
    He needed to come back down to aid

    Three years from now
    They're on the run
    Fleeing the Dark Lord they're all alone
    They went to a friend
    Guess who she lost
    Freighter boy stuck in carbo-frost
    She calls up her friends
    They all agree
    So they're all in disguise
    To get him free
    She tags along
    But they found her out
    Looks up at the men who're about to thrown down

    He was a freighter boy
    She said see you later boy
    It turned out he was the man
    Now he is Sarlacc-food
    That will not do him good
    Happ'ly the Jedi has a plan (2x)

    Sorry Jabba you missed out
    Well tough luck that boy's mine now
    We are more than just good friends
    This is how the story ends
    Too bad that you couldn't see,
    The day the galaxy is free
    There is more that meets the eye
    We'd be doomed without Jedi

    He's just a boy
    And I'm just a girl
    Can I make it any more obvious
    We are in love
    Haven't you heard
    How we rock each others world

    I'm with the freighter boy
    I said see you later boy
    We'll be making-out behind a tree
    I'll be at the festival
    Hugging our friends and all
    Thinking of great times that will be (2x)

    For simple use you can go to Google Groups and either search or burrow down from the top-level addresses.

    If you really want to use Newsgroups though, you need to use a proper newsserver (which your ISP probably has, usually news.myisp.co.nz) and decent newsreader application or if you really must you can use Netscape or MS Outlook. You enter the newsservers's addres into your newsreader appliation's preferences, wait 10minutes or so while it downloads the list of way more than 20,000 newsgroup from your newsserver (once only), then you read and reply pretty much the same as emails, except your messages can be read by anyone who logs into the newsgroup.

    There's normal message groups, but also lots of "binaries" message groups where people post pretty much anything (images, MP3s, videos, applications, ...).

    Found this wee beauty, if ya don't know the song go hunt out your parents record collection.....

    ** THE MAX REBO BAND
    **
    ** (To Billy Joel's "The Pianoman")

    It's nine o'clock down at Jabba's place
    the regular crowd waddles in
    there's a weird thing sitting next to me
    it has three eyes and mottled gray skin.

    Fett says Max can you play me a memory
    I'm not really sure how it goes
    but it's haunting and sweet and if you miss a beat
    this carbine will blow off your nose.

    He said sing us a song now, Max Rebo Band
    sing us a song tonight
    'cause we're all in the mood for a melody
    except Solo, who's in carbonite.

    La de de da, de de da
    La da de de da, da dum..

    Now Jabba the Hutt is a friend of mine
    he gives me my life for free
    And because he's a Hutt, why, we all kiss his butt
    or the rancor will have us for tea.

    He said "Bo Shuda, offom da Tukatti!"
    as he stuffed a frog into his face
    but we don't know a woid, 'cause he shot the talkdroid
    So we'll smile and nod, just in case.

    Oh, La de de da, de de da
    La da de de da, da dum..

    Sing us a song now, Max Rebo Band
    sing us a song tonight
    'cause we're all in the mood for a melody
    except Solo, who's in carbonite.

    Sy Snootles is our favorite vocalist
    her face it ain't launching no ships.
    Don't know why it behoove her to go kiss a Hoover
    but that's how she got those weird lips.

    A Gammorean guard is headbutting bricks
    as another one gnaws on a bone
    and I don't know which has less intelligence
    either those two big thugs or the stone.

    Sing us a song now, Max Rebo Band
    sing us a song tonight
    'cause we're all in the mood for a melody
    except Solo, who's in carbonite.

    Oh, la da da da de de dah
    la da de de da dah dum..

    It's a pretty good crowd, here at Jabba's place
    it's a killing, that's why we're all here
    we'll sail over the dune to the pit of Carkoon
    and we'll toss someone in with a cheer.

    'Cause we gotta new droid on the pedestal
    and a man in black's come in the door
    he just pointed a gun over Salacious Crumb
    and then promptly sank through the floor.

    Oh, La de de da, de de da
    La da de de da, da dum..

    Sing us a song now, Max Rebo Band
    sing us a song tonight
    for the Jedi Skywalker is down below
    and the rancor is gripping him tight

    Found it! here it is: Skywalkers Destiny in tune to Queen?s Bohemian Rhapsody. It was originally written as a skit to be performed onstage, To be sung by 2 people: Narrator, Luke plus a chorus the chorus was split into 2, dark side light side, and there was also a non- singing vader, emperor and spirit of darth maul playing an instrument that looked decidedly like a 2 bladed saber :p)
    hope you can follow it, it helps to have Bohemian Rhapsody playing as you read.


    Is he a Jedi, is it his destiny
    Trapped in a Death Star, no escape from captivity
    Open your eyes, look up to the stars and see...

    Was just a farm boy, soon he's a Jedi
    Because his training's low, reckless though, Yoda said he had to go...
    Any way the Force flows, doesn?t really matter to thee...destiny...


    Jedi, just killed his dad.
    Put a Saber through his arm,
    Then the Emperor did more harm,
    Jedi, now you're all alone,
    And now you've got to get the hell away.

    Jedi, Ooooh oooh
    Didn?t mean to make him die,
    But hell be back to see you soon on Endor...
    Carry on, carry on, Yoda said there's another...

    Too late, his time had come,
    Sent lightning down his spine,
    Body's aching all the time
    Goodbye Anakin, he had to go,
    Had to leave his son behind and tell the truth.

    Jedi - Ooooh ooh any way the Force flows
    Said "Father, You can't die"
    Sometimes wish he'd never found out at all...

    {instrumental}

    I see a disfigured image of a man
    Strike him down! Strike him down! Give in to your Anger
    Thunder bolts and lightning coming from his fingertips!


    Obi Wan - Obi Wan
    Obi wan - Obi Wan
    Obi wan - Ken - obi - wan


    I am a Jedi, like my dad before me
    He?s now a Jedi, from Skywalkers family
    Turn to the Dark Side it is your destiny


    Easy come, easy go will you let me go
    Skywalker ? No! he will not let you go
    Let him go!
    Skywalker - he will not let you go
    Let him go!
    Skywalker - he will mot let you go

    Let me go
    Will not let you go
    Let me go
    Will not let you go
    Let me go o o o
    No no no no no no no

    Father please, Father please,
    Father please help me out

    What else more has the emperor got in store for me,
    for me, for meeee


    {instrumental - luke and Vader lightsaber battle, chorus headbangs}

    So you think you can turn me to the Dark Side!
    So you think you can turn me, I?d much rather die!
    Ooooh Father,
    can?t do this to me Father,
    Just gotta get out, just gotta control my fear.


    {instrumental - more duelling}

    Oooooooooooooooh ooooh yeah oooh yeah

    Anakin was Vader,
    Yoda had forseen
    Anakin was Vader,
    and his son Luke Skywalker is me


    Anyway the Force Flows

    "Imperial Rhapsody"
    From Star Wars: A Rock Opera


    LANDO: This is the good life
    This is a fantasy
    Working on Bespin
    An escape from Reality.
    LEIA: Open your eyes
    Stand up to these guys and see.
    LUKE: I'm just a farmboy, I need some sympathy
    Cuz who's my dad, I dunno
    Little whine, little moan.
    HAN: Anywhere the Force goes, doesn't really matter, to me

    PIETT: Vader just killed a man.
    Raised an arm up in the air
    Now his life is no longer there.
    Vader, we had just begun,
    And now I've gone and lost the reb-el scum.
    Vader, ooooooo.
    Didn't mean to make you mad
    If I'm not alive again this time tomorrow,
    There'll be a new admiral, as if nothing ever happened.

    YODA: Too late, my time has come,
    Sends shivers down my spine
    Body's aching all the time.
    LUKE: Goodbye everybody, I've got to go
    Gotta leave you all behind and learn the Force.
    PIETT: Vader, ooooooooo.
    I don't want to die
    I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all.

    LUKE: I see a little silhouetto of a man
    Palpatine, Palpatine, can it be the Emperor?
    Thunderbolts and lightning, very very hurting me!
    R2-D2, R2-D2,
    R2-D2, R2-D2,
    R2-D2, Where'd ya go? C-3PO O O O O O OH!
    I'm just a farmboy, nobody loves me.
    REBELS: He's just a farmboy, with a dead family.
    Spare him this life of such mundacity!
    HAN: Spice'll come, spice'll go. Jabba let me go.
    JABBA: Bo shuda! (NO, we will not let you go)
    HAN: Let me go!
    JABBA: Bo shuda! (We will not let you go)
    HAN: Let me go!
    JABBA: Bo shuda! (We will not let you go)
    HAN: LET ME GO!
    JABBA: WILL NO LET YOU GO!
    HAN: LET ME GO!
    JABBA: WILL NOT LET YOU GO!
    HAN: LET ME GO!
    JABBA: NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!

    C3PO: Oh R2-D2, R2-D2, R2-D2, Come along.
    LEIA: C-3PO has a rebel put aside for meeeee, for meeeeee, for
    MEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

    (Stormtroopers start headbanging)

    LUKE: So you say you're the dear old father of mine?
    But you cut my hand off and left me to die!
    Oh Vader, can't do this to me, Vader.
    I know there's some good, I know there's still some good in you.

    OBIWAN: May the Force be with you.
    Use the Force to see.
    May the Force be with you,
    May the Force be with you, alwaaaaaaaaaaaaays.

    HAN: Anywhere the Force goes, doesn't really mat-ter, to meeeeeeee

    Indeed we will, might have to try and plan a camping and fishing trip too, by the way do you mind if I get rid of that chamois leg sitting in the freezer? Might make good bait for some shark fishing.
