THE ADVENTURES OF THE SWEET ELECTRIC: Defender

Warning: if you don’t want to have radical rock ‘n’ roll jams stuck in your head for the rest of the day, turn away now. We’ll all laugh at you and call you a “music coward” behind your back, but at least you’ll have your sanity intact, and that has to be worth something, right? All right, for those intrepid souls who remain, welcome to the world premiere of Liam Lynch’s The Adventures of The Sweet Electric, the best damn show in town about an intergalactically popular rock band made up of Androgynoids, which, yes, are androgynous robots that would give the Thin White Duke a run for his money.

In today’s debut episode, “Defender”, our heroes – V1ctor, Robbie, and Shay – board an abandoned luxury ship on the way to their next gig. But wait… where are all the escape pods? And why is there so much blood on the walls? Fortunately for The Sweet Electric, Robbie’s got a comic book that might just help them get out of this mess.

    I’m seeing Ziggy Stardust meets the Rocky Horror Picture Show by way of Josie and the Pussycats in Outer Space produced by a computer generated Sid and Marty Krofft. I love it!

  3. Reprobate says:

    Love it! I wish this was a real band, I’d go see them. Check out the older videos on YouTube. 

  4. Andy Purcell says:

    I love the throwback on this! It’s Scooby do meets The Monkeys, meets Red Dwarf. Sure, it uses dated comedy themes but to me, THAT IS THE POINT! and that is why I LOVE IT!

  5. Tarrasq says:

    I can say this… it’s better than a reality show featuring a band by leaps and bounds.  Also space bugs are always a plus.

    This gives me an idea.  Imagine the Doctor picking up a band every season to debut a song.  The band could be fictional or real for all I care. It could be fun , could be awful too, but they could try it.  Come on, Doctor Who the musical episode, you know you want it.

  6. It’s Spinal Tap meets Scooby Doo meets the Monkeys AND I LOVE IT!

  7. Fantastic having one of my favorite bands with their own show that debut new songs on.

    I was skeptical about this but this was way crazier than I was expecting

    Ziggy Stardust pushed though the Banana Splits.

  11. Kiel says:

    So great, can’t wait to see and hear more!

  12. Well, the laugh track is part of the joke. Loved it. Especially the song. Great stuff.

  13. bear says:

    The laugh track is the worst. Please no.

  14. nope says:

    this is fucking terrible

  15. yournot says:

    It’s amazing that one guy did all of this. That being said.. it’s a British version of The Monkeys… in space.. laugh track and all.

  16. jessie says:

    Can’t get past the laugh track.

    • LurkingGrue says:

      It’s drawing from the sort of 70s and 80s shows like Kroft Superstars/ Banana Splits/ Josie and the Pussycats in outer space / Bugaloos but pushed though 1970s Glam.

      A laugh track would be expected.
