Co-host Carl tells me Rock & Rule (1983) never got a proper American theatrical release (it played in Boston). Americans did see it, thanks to bootleg copies, HBO airings, video store placements, and now YouTube. It's one of those science-fiction yarns that start with title cards setting up the world. You see, in the future, an evil superrocker kidnaps a young singer and it's up to her unlikable band members to save her. How unlikable are her bandmates? So unlikable I mistook the guitarist for a drummer.
Carl and I are joined in the studio with Hatch, Roman Leo, and George D-Smith
