From left to right: Kandee, Roscoe and Evangeline."
A fictional band
created by the Flash
animator Jonti "Weebl" Picking of Weebl & Bob
fame. Savlonic consists of singers Evangeline D'isco and Roscoe Thunderpants and the drummer Kandee Flaus. So far, five Savlonic songs have been released: "Electro Gypsy
" (2008), "Tiny Japanese Girl
" (2010), "Wandering Eye
" (2011), "The Driver
" (2012), and "Computer Guy
" (2013), each accompanied by Flash-made music videos created by Picking and Peabo. All tracks are available as iTunes singles.
The fictional band displays the following tropes:
- Anvil On Head: The end of "Electro Gypsy" video has a giant synthesizer fall on Kandee (and a smaller one bounce off Evangeline's head.)
- Art Evolution: Starting with Wandering Eye, created by another animator (Peabo), the videos are far more advanced graphically and no longer depict the characters in borderline Super-Deformed style.
- Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: "Tiny Japanese Girl" has Roscoe in a Godzilla costume rampaging across a city.
- Badass Mustache: Roscoe's mustache, which is a reference to Ron Mael's. That said, since Mael is somewhat obscure, most people don't get the reference... instead, on any Savlonic YouTube video, half the comments are along the lines of "I didn't know Adolf Hitler could sing so well." Lampshaded in the interview. Luckily, the other half refers to Charlie Chaplin.
- Blinding Bangs: Evangeline. In "Wandering Eye", appropriately enough, she reveals her eyes... with squicky results.
- Eye Scream: The music video for "Wandering Eye" takes the title very much literally.
- Peek-a-Bangs: Kandee, one step up from Evangeline's Blinding Bangs.
- Punny Name: Kandee Flaus.
- Shout-Out: A scene in "Electro Gypsy" homages the stockroom scene from The Matrix, with synthesizers in place of weaponry.
- Tron Lines: In Computer Guy.
- You Gotta Have Purple Hair: Kandee.
