  1. I worked on this I can’t wait to hear the show

    Tezza got me the job .I did the head-butswith John Otway rough trade

    Incredible including Maggie of Fuzzbox and Mr Aqua himself he is so funny

    Sharing it now thank you Terry

  2. This will be entertaining.

    The Vegan Vamps are a great little creation

    I worked on the Huntington Beach scenes and it was fun and as much about the vinyl resurgence and the legendary record store but with supernatural elements .

    The storage shelf and some amazing vinyl and as a plastic head it was a total treat for me to play a small role is is this film .

    It’s the soundtrack I think that will make it happen even if it’s on a small cult type level

    There were a couple of unsavoury characters piggybacking of the otherwise fun experience

    Mike Bennett and Steve watson were totally professional and had to do a lot of mopping up . That’s what producers have to do on low-budget independent films. The only film as I’ve ever been involved in so far , but from what I’ve seen it looks quite high-end considering a lot of it was filmed on mobile phones during the pandemic. I am glad that my scene in Huntington Beach has been included . I’ll be tuning in

  3. Caught the show . sharing it. Great fun . Tiger feet was originally 1972 but was held back!

    It was originally written for Suzie Quattro because she wore tiger boots but devil gate drive came along and so Mike Chapman played it’s too large grey and he did this sort of Elvis impression which was hilarious

    Nonsensical lyrics and a boogie backdrop was a tonic for the troops.

    If you think about it it sounds like status quo but with Glam rock drums and an Elvis impersonator ha ha

    Very underrated really that band

  4. True but Micky most wanted something edgy devil hate drive was the weapon of choice ..she always listened to Most. Tiger feet was a lads stomp. Almost an anthem Quattro was more kind of Joan Jet muse Mud were panto rock not real glam like Quatro
