Goofs Although the main cast are perfectly groomed and attired for the period in the early-'60s concert scenes, this does not stretch to the extras (the crowd, and in particular the security staff) who are all clearly from 1974. Some of the music also sounds 1970s rather than 1960s. See more »

Crazy Credits The male dancers ( extras )in the dance hall scene, dancing to "the tits and bums" were supplied by the Army Apprentices College,Harrogate, Yorkshire, UK. In particular John HICKMAN, Peter COSSON and Neil TURNER. See more »
Quotes Sally Potter: Are you a Stray Cat?
Mike: No, I'm a roadie.
Sally Potter: Roadie sounds like some sort of vagrant. What is that exactly?
Mike: It's like an army batman, only without the uniform. I make sure there's enough beer, chips and rubbers to go round. I supply the birds, the pills and the pot. And anything else that might be required to satisfy their lust... carnal, or otherwise.
