This film is a reminder of the early days of glam rock. There are good performances by Barry Humphries (better known now as Dame Edna Everidge), and Terry Thomas as rival nightclub owners. Terry Thomas is the traditionalist, who prefers the 'old style' and is totally against these new fangled Glam Rock acts. He sets about spoiling things in his usual caddish manner. Barry Humphries sets off to London in order to sign up some quality acts. It is interesting to see cameo acts by stars of the era such as Fox, and Stephanie de Sykes. All in all a little weak and dated now, but an enjoyable trip down memory lane.
