For your Star Wars Day observance…

May the Fourth is here again, bringing us another Star Wars Day. What better way to celebrate than with Ash‘s cover of John Williams’ “Cantina Band,” released in July 1995 as the B-side to their classic “Girl From Mars” single? I saw the band perform a ripping version in San Francisco last year (and noticed the prominent Darth Vader decal on Mark Hamilton’s bass)…

If you’re so inclined, go to 3:50 of the following video to see the then-teenaged Ash members discuss their Star Wars fandom on a mid-’90s episode of The Big Breakfast, featuring a Star Wars trivia lightning round! (You may roll your eyes at the fairly easy questions, but clearly there were extenuating circumstances involved…)
