    Okay. I don’t remember hearing that.

    But, a year or two later, a band called Big Daddy released their first album. They were a musically fairly-brilliant group, who performed 1970s and 80s songs in versions derived from 50s and 60s rock (Imagine “Ebony and Ivory” done as Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard might have performed. Or a Duane Eddy-meets-the-Ventures instrumental of the Star Wars theme.)

    Anyway, the shtick was that they were a real 1950s band that had been captured by the Pathet Lao on a USO tour and been held prisoner for twenty years. The album cover was mocked up to look like a National Enquirer page, with the story.

    What’s the relevance?

    When word got out about the band being still there, the story went, the CIA contacted a famous director and borrowed monster costumes and equipment from a movie he was shooting in the area, and raided the camp…
