This week at The Gutter, Guest Star Todd Stadtman writes about The War Of The Gargantuas’ “lone pop musical interlude.”
It’s no coincidence, then, that Ishiro Honda’s War of the Gargantuas, a fixture of the UHF band during my youth, has proven to be a childhood entertainment that has in later years demonstrated a particularly adhesive quality. And that’s not true just for me. Gargantuas seems to have left its imprint on a lot of us, and its most universally relived moment, perhaps unsurprisingly, is its lone pop musical interlude. This, of course, takes place in a swanky roof top lounge, at which an assortment of nice Japanese ladies and gentlemen in their evening going-out clothes spectate a Caucasian lady singing a song in front of a live band.
I have actually seen the addle-pated bit of mad-science cinema from which this is a publicity still. Indeed, I’ve even blogged about it, and if you’re curious you can watch the whole darn thing at the Internet Archive.
