When Jason Glastetter reported that Lost tribute band Previously on Lost was hired by ABC to record for the television phenom, we had to find out exactly what this meant. They couldn’t replace that awesome theme song, could they?
We took a few moments with one half of POL, Adam Schatz, to ask what exactly the band’s responsibilities would include. Adam explained that they were hired to record for ABC’s web series, Lost Untangled. The series, which recaps each episode comedically using action figures, cutout dolls, and a very elaborate set, has had over 10 million views to date.
“The people behind Untangled reached out to us asking us to do what we do best — to write a recap for the Season 5 finale,” Adam told us. “So we did it, and we truly believe it is our best song to date.”
As for it’s specific use, Adam said “they’re currently filming a music video for it using the action figures with pieces of dialogue recreating scenes from the finale episode.” He’s hoping this is the start of something bigger, adding that the band has aspirations to write recaps of every Lost episode for Untangled next season. In the meantime, check out ABC.com around June 1 to watch what Adam says, “will likely be the funniest thing ever.”
