Cantina Band


Song Notes

This is a version of “Cantina Band” from the Star Wars movies by film composer John Williams. The band continue to play the track live most recently on their 2018 Islands UK tour..

Rick: Were just really into Star Wars. The song’s cool. The Cantina Band did it in the first movie and we thought we’d have a go at it.

Tim Wheeler talking to The Guardian in October 2022:

“Our producer walked out of the session – it was like the last straw. We loved Star Wars – our bassist, Mark, had a near-complete collection of the action figures – and we’d just got the box set of the soundtracks. I figured the song out by listening to the CD with my guitar in my hand, note-by-note – and it has so many notes!”
