Star Wars Cantina Band: A Pop Vinyl Mashup


Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes were a popular all-Bith band in the Outer Rim Territories of the Star Wars universe. Fans of Star Wars will know them as the band playing in the Mos Eisley Cantina when Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi first met Han Solo and Chewbacca. Even in popular culture, both the band and their song, “Mad About Me”, are widely known as the “Cantina Band”. So what happens when we swap rock stars here on Earth with rock stars from the Outer Rim? You’ll find out in our Pop Vinyl mashup of the Star Wars Cantina Band in iconic album cover artwork and band photos! All photos are clickable for larger images.
