BLAST-OFF GIRLS 1967
U.S. film. Excellent quality. Letterbox. Boojie Baker (Dan Conway) is a ruthless and greedy talent manager who "discovers" and then exploits unknown rock bands. The film opens in a nightclub with one of Boojie's protégé acts, a band named Charlie, who have been put through the grind. They begin to complain about the royalties they've been cheated out of, and then quit.

Undaunted, Boojie and his loyal but dim-witted assistant Gordy (Ray Sager) walk into a bar for some cheap drinks and they discover a new band performing, played by real-life Chicago garage band The Faded Blue. Promising them a recording contract and fame, Boojie renames the group "The Big Blast," and primes them for stardom.

This is done by utilizing a pack of hot and loose women to seduce a recording engineer, photographing him in the heat of the moment and then blackmailing him into letting The Big Blast cut a single. As the band's popularity grows, it doesn't take long before they wonder why they aren't receiving any money for their labors.

The film ends with a zany montage of the band running around Chicago landmarks, which was inspired by the Beatles' A Hard Day's Night. Blast-Off Girls features a cameo appearance by KFC founder Colonel Sanders. Cast members remember that Sanders was difficult to work with; he requested multiple rehearsals, top-billing (!), and wanted to direct the scene himself. Dan Conway, Ray Sager, Ron Liace, Tom Tyrell, Dennis Hickey, Ralph Mullin, Chris Wolski, Lawrence J. Aberwood.

PUNK CAN TAKE IT 1979
U.K. film. Julien Temple's punk documentary "Punk Can Take It" presents live footage of the influential punk band U.K. Subs and is structured like a parody of WWII era British newsreels. The film uses outtakes from Temple's "The Great Rock & Roll Swindle" (a film about the Sex Pistols) which has just been completed.
