In the aftermath of Andor’s fantastic first season, we’ve found ourselves devouring anything and everything Rogue One-related. This is certainly the case with Mondo’s lavish 4LP set of music that Michael Giacchino crafted for the film, much of it gathered here for the first time on 180-gram black vinyl.

Karma Chameleon Telephone
Culture Club’s “Karma Chameleon” remains one of the defining songs of the 1980s. Weirdly enough, it was such a sensation that it spawned a truly bizarre piece of spin-off merchandise, a telephone that plays the song when a call comes through. That would be wondrous in and of itself, but the Karma Chameleon telephone struts the extra mile into Crazytown by featuring a lizard whose stomach lights up (red, gold, and green—the colors mentioned in the tune, natch) and, for reasons best left unexamined, a ladybug who plays the earworm’s harmonica solo. This truly bonkers piece of merch was sanctioned by Boy George, who appears in the phone’s jaw-dropping ad. (Watch it on YouTube, trust me.) Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dreams, and with this phone, they are. Astonishing.
