    Good afternoon all.



    I'm hoping someone can help me with this. I remember when I was younger - in the late 70's/sometime in the 80's - seeing a film that I believe was British - involving a group of aliens (I believe a trio) that play rock music. One of them is sort round and short, another is tall and slim, and I can't recall what the other looks like. I think that the premise of the movie is that the group is presented as being rock musicians who dress up like aliens, but in reality, they are aliens who play music. One thing I remember from the film is that the tall alien is fascinated by a sink faucet - so much so that he sticks one of his fingers in the faucet and it gets stuck (this happens right before a concert). So someone has the bright idea of removing the faucet and leaving the faucet on the alien's finger - this becomes this alien's signature gimmick (so much so that his fans show up to the concerts with faucets on a finger).



    I hope someone can remember the name of this movie, it's driving me mad - and I remember it was a great movie.



    Thanks all.

    I was hoping that was the film, but alas no - the aliens in this movie (the ones I can remember) had funky hair and were colours of green and blue and perhaps red (one was green, one blue and the other red - I think).

    Sounds just my sort of thing. Have had a quick look round and had no luck. Be interested to find out the title as well.

    Alas no - Earth Girls are Easy has a number of fairly well known actors and this film I have in mind didn't really.



    As an aside, do forum members know about this website:



    The Internet Movie Database (IMDb)



    Any other thoughts on what the movie might be? I can't see there being too many films that are about aliens, music and a faucet.

    Is it Morons from Outer Space (1985)?



    This synopsis suggests that the aliens in it do indeed become rock stars:

    It's possible...I'll see if I can rent it and let you know.



    I recall the aliens in the movie looking like aliens, but that was years ago, so my memory could be fuzzy.

    I would think that most do. It often gets used in links to it or mentions of things on it. And at least some of us are contributors

    After watching clips of this movie on YouTube, I am about 90% certain this is the movie I want. So I'm ready to call this question answered.



    Thanks for your help Euryale.
