Self confessed HUGE Star Wars fans Wheatus don’t like the title of the next Star Wars movie “Attack of the Clones”.
Speaking with entaine.com’s Heiko Schoenborn Brendon Brown says “I like The Phantom Menace, I don’t like Attack of the Clones. It makes it sound like Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. Like a B grade horror movie. It’s probably going to be a great story and great effects. All the Storm Troopers are clones underneath their helmets. The Emperor in The Phantom Menace used robots but they weren’t reliable, so he had to experiment with Clones. That’s where the Clone Wars happen. It should be called The Clone Wars, because that’s what it is”.
Wheatus are concentrating on consolidating their European success with the announcement of a new round of dates in England across November and December. The American group have little success on their home turf but in Europe and Australia have generated Top 10 hits.
Last week they played the V2001 Festival and then kick off their biggest ever English tour in Liverpool on November 10.
