Who is this "artist" (crappy 70's video version)

Take a look at this train wreck

I'm thinking this might be that guy who did the disco version of the Star Wars theme. Meco, or Mego, or something like that.

Well, the name of the group is on the bass drum head, but it's hard to make out. Judging by the lameness of the entire presentation, I would say it was "The Scheisse Band." That keyboard player looks like Doug Henning and Weird Al's retarded love-child.

lol Thanks for the clip. That made my night!

Don't know who it is. Even though there's a bongo player in the background, that definetly aint "The Incredible Bongo Band" (Who also have their version of the song released in the during that era)

That might explain why he's dressed like a Jedi knight.

Could be; can't quite make out the name on the drum.

It's The Splash Band (not to be confused with the reggae band of the same name). They also did a disco cover of John Carpenter's theme from Assault on Precinct 13. I think they had releases on the disco division of the German ZYX label.

I forgot to ask...which one of the Hanson brothers is playing the drums in that video?

(Five points for whoever gets the reference.)

Consider yourself five-pointed, Joe Don Baker.

But I'm still waiting for an "Attaboy, Luther!" from somebody...
