About the band, 1 February 2010
Author: Art Hadley from United States

One quick comment about the band mentioned in the other review and the "Townsend/Perry" lookalike singer.

That's Doug Fieger, and the band is Sky. They made two magnificent albums 1970-71, produced by Gary Wright, Jimmy Miller and Andy Johns. Johns brought in the same heavy hitters he used on Stones albums. Doug (whose brother is Kevorkian lawyer Geoffrey Fieger) went on to form "The Knack" and co-wrote Billboard's 1978 song of the year, My Sharona.

It's too bad the previous reviewer hated the music; Sky being in it is the only reason I've heard of this movie. It's obviously not a great showcase for their songs, however. I've watched the film on DVD and it's pretty lousy, kind of embarrassing like a 1970s suit. But it does have one of my all time favorite bands on the soundtrack, so that counts for something.
