I want to live for 500 years just to hear this band play
29 November 2014 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

If the episode "Space Rockers" holds true, in 500 years there's gonna be some groovalicious music in the cosmos. In this episode, Buck zooms out to "Music World", a space station run by sleazy record execs and populated by teenage kids (where the heck are their parents??), to investigate reports of strange riots occurring whenever there's a performance by the galaxy's hottest band: ANDROMEDA.

Yeah yeah, you've seen one Buck Rogers episode, you've seen em all. But what distinguishes this episode from the rest is the awesome music by Andromeda--or in real world terms: Johnny Harris, Scottish born musician/composer who has given us hits from the Diana Ross TV Special to Wonder Woman. This cat got groove.

In particular, the song highlighted here is entitled "Odyssey", a synthy disco hit that's recently been featured on the video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Hearing that song & seeing it performed by spandex-wearing, space-age rockers playing instruments that look more like Christmas decorations than anything else is a total trip. If you have any appreciation at all for 70s funk, disco and old-school electronica, you must check out this episode for its sheer WTF factor.

The only real drawback of this episode is that the wonderful Wilma (Erin Gray) is only seen for a few seconds. But at least in those few seconds she's wearing her signature shiny spandex suit as only she can wear it. Homina homina.
