Throwback Video: Miami Disco Band Hemlock Performs on KidsWorld, 1979
The footage is from a performance on a Miami broadcast program called
Kidsworld. The young announcer at the beginning of the clip explains
that Hemlock were just in Hollywood recording the soundtrack for a
movie. Turns out Swap Meet
did in fact come out and Hemlock do get the original music credit.
Online movie reviewer Revenge Is My Destiny describes the film thusly, "Nutty teen comedy
exploring the wacky hijinks to be found at the weekly swap meet. Okay,
so high concept it isn't. But before being too hard on someone's idea
of centering a movie around a swap meet try to understand that this was
made long before eBay, back when shopping malls were a new concept and
pocket calculators were cutting edge technology. Plus, did we mention
the titties? Yep, there's some titties in this one. And God bless 'em,
they NEVER go out of style."
