"I don’t wanna be Jar Jar Binks no more" – Star Wars twee from The Bobby McGee’s


I’ve got plenty of space in my heart for novelty anti-folk, for proof two of my favorite bands of the 90′s were Ed’s Redeeming Qualities and Pianasaurus but not so much TMBG. But I’ve floundered around a bit this decade and haven’t yet settled on a favorite. That may change with the discovery of The Bobby Mcgee’s. This English group that namedrops the Smiths, Top of the Pops and Jar Jar Binks records for the uk label Cherryade.

Of course there’s plenty of ukelele, odd percussion and male and female vocals straight out of the “how to be twee handbook”. And for the piece de resistance there’s a song about Star Wars.
