“Oh boy! One hot night coming up!”
On this crotch-bulging episode of the Dare Daniel podcast, Saddle Tramps go-go boys Daniel Barnes and Corky McDonnell review Nancy Walker’s coked-up 1980 Village People origin story Can’t Stop the Music (aka Searching for Leatherman). The first film to win the Razzie award for Worst Picture, Can’t Stop the Music co-stars Steve Guttenberg, Valerie Perrine, and a pre-gender transition Caitlyn Jenner, but the film is best remembered for inspiring the Baskin-Robbins flavor Can’t Stop the Nuts. Discovering to their horror that the music will never stop, even beyond the grave, Daniel and Corky discuss Guttenberg’s body double, lascivious Leatherkids and the dilated pupils of Jack “Relax! Boogie!” Weston.
