Born too late to actually see the Untouchables, but I did enjoy seeing you guys chase around Emilio Estevez in the movie Repo Man.

I personally loved Repo Man, it definitely has become a cult classic and use to get heavy airplay on one of the TV stations here. I think the film was actually ahead of it's time because it was so out there, yet the are a million films popping out now trying to pull off the same ridiculous situations that fall flat and look like they tried way too hard. It's a silly movie, but having all food and drink products with cheap labels that say "Food" or "Beer" on them? I think there is a degree of brilliance in that. Whether it be on purpose or because they didn't have the movie for sponsorship.

I thought it was a brilliant film. The dying Punk I thought was genius and I too thought the tins of food were great. And Mods in it too! A cult classic without a doubt. I have never looked at a Magic tree air freshener in a car the same way since... lol emoticon

We were in a couple other flicks too, if you can find them..."Party Animal"...very juvenile [sign in to see URL] redeemable value... but we do perform a mean rendition of "The General"...You can see me wail on my old Acetone organ (of which I took my tag)...lots of L.A. mods/friends of the day made up our audience..."No Man's Land"-Charlie Sheen [sign in to see URL]'d already left the U.T.'s, so they have someone mimicking my vocal, singing "What's Gone Wrong"...B#...Acetone...

Wow - loved the Untouchables! Got all the stuff I could find of theirs here in England. A few cool twelve inches still in mint condition get an airnig now and then.

The live version of Stepping Stone on the 'B' Side of Free Yourself is awsome and, though I sound like an arse-licker, the keyboards on that track was the thing that turned me on to the band.

Rocking stuff!
