THE COMICS' BEAT: Cosmic Boy In S.P.O.C.K.'s 'Cosmic Boy'

Mondays. They are worse than Dr Doom and after a heavy one, it can be a little hard to get the drum pumping again for the week ahead. As a former DJ, each Monday I dig into my collection, and chuck up a hit nodding to comics' best.

This week, it's S.P.O.C.K. with Cosmic Boy. Now it may not DC's Legionnaire, but a galactic ladies man on the run from the (science) police sounds close enough. Plus, I like the Legion. Sold.

"Breaking laws and meet beautiful girls,
Every little second is usable, his life is a race
Cosmic Boy, Cosmic Boy - looking for action, looking for joy,
Cosmic Boy, Cosmic Boy"

  1. I'd never heard this one of their's. Okay, I'll admit, the only thing I've ever listened to of S.P.O.C.K. is Never Trust a Klingon and Dr. McCoy. They're a fun band to see with their full garb on. I might have to go dig through the rest of their stuff and see what else they did that I had no idea about. Dan, does your brain have a cross reference section?

  2. Most of the time Random I don't think my brain has any sections, it just replays animal clips from America's Funniest Home Videos and Wipeout montages :)

    Glad to show you a new tune though!

  3. A Cosmic Bot, good 'ol Rokk Krinn one of the LSHs most stable stuck in the mud members, but what would the team be without him...
    I had heard of a song featuring him but didn't know it was this, thanks for showing us Dan.

    On unrelated news so Josh Brolin was approached to play Bats before Affleck...proof that Hollywood in going with Affleck has no sense, no taste and precious little good judgement.
    Brolin, could've just couldve pulled it off.

  4. I would have liked to at least seen the tests from Brolin playing Bats. It would be interesting to see what he'd do. I just can't work up the interest for Affleck. I think I know what he'll do. He'll be Ben Affleck in a costume.

  5. I could see, and would rather see Josh Brolin as the older Batman. He looks about rough, and has the same gruff demeanor the older Batman would have. Damn shame he lost out to Ass-fleck.

    Loving these music/comic-related posts of course. Anymore every monday?

    Maybe do a top 5 or 10 list of these, provided you have enough to keep doing one every monday.

  6. Thanks guys! @Karl, yup; I put Josh in the News In Brief in the sidebar in the weekend. Sometimes two post stories a day just ain't enough ;-)

    I have plenty more Legion songs in the playlist ahead Karl so hope you like those too when I get to them buddy!

    Yup Dale, every Monday. I have years worth so I think I'll keep the odd characters in solo spots but groups at a time might help me get through Superman etc! Thanks for the idea. It's hard being the comicbook Rick Dees ;-)
