The Rufus Project Redeeming Features Cast: Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (1978)

Kristian and Trevor take on the challenge of redeeming Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band from 1978.  Is it a great tribute to a classic Beatles album, or should we get the bug spray?

Can you do a Sgt Pepper’s movie without the Beatles?  Did the Beatles even like this?  Does Frampton come alive?  Does anyone other that George Burns have dialogue?  Is this movie redeemable?

Listen on and find out!

Did we miss any redeeming features?  Do you think we were too generous or unfair?  Do you have a suggestion, or a challenge, for us to take on in the future?  Then get in touch with us by either leaving a comment on our homepageFacebook or Twitter, or email us at
