Torpa Celebrates 50 Years With Groovy Theme Tune

Torpa Audio has released a rather nifty variation of the Doctor Who theme tune, performed by S. and P. Dandy as their very own celebration of the 50th anniversary.

It’s quite psychedelic and certainly ‘old-school,’ and reminds me of Big Finish’s theme for the Eighth Doctor Adventures. Torpa’s theme is accompanied on YouTube by a compilation of titles sequences from across eras, including the First Doctor, Seventh Doctor and the 1996 TV Movie.

You can download the theme tune for free for a limited time only over at bandcamp, as well as checking out their previous releases, including their debut 2012 tracks, King Neptune and Somewhere, Someplace. Counting Bob Dylan and David Bowie amongst their inspirations, Torpa’s Insect/ Hooked releases even reference the Second Doctor’s famous speech from The Moonbase: “There are some corners of the universe which have bred the most terrible things. Things which act against everything we believe in. They must be fought.”

Definitely a band to keep an eye on!
