Just found this movie that I had only seen wild pictures of in my search for punksploitation classics. Pretty fuckin’ awesome! The leader of the gang ‘Tarzan’ rocks a fully studded face mask ‘n leads a motley crew of motorcycle ridin’ 30-something Mexicans with eye makeup, mustaches, ‘n multicolored poodle mohawks, sportin’ names like ‘Pirate’ & ‘Caligula’. They ride around robbin’ ‘n pillagin’ to afford the pot ‘n snow that fuels their all-night desert orgies of fightin’ ‘n fuckin’. All this and a hard drivin’ theme song by Three Souls In My Mind. What’s not to like?!

Peggy Moffitt (born in California in 1939), is best known as the premier model and muse for the late fashion designer Rudi Gernreich. Though her unique look has now become iconic of the 60s fashion scene, Peggy started out pursuing a career in film, debuting in the 1955’s You’re Never Too Young.
Her work with Gernreich, and entrance into the 60s fashion scene came along in 1958 when she began a romantic affair with photographer William Claxton. Claxton had been involved with Gernreich since 1956, photographing his designs. By 1962 (two years after Moffitt and Claxton had wed), Peggy began work as a model for Gernreich.
As she began modeling for Gernreich, her signature image began to evolve. She wore false eyelashes and heavy eye makeup, drawing on not only current trends but Japanese Kabuki theater. Her hairstyle, created by Vidal Sassoon, a totally unique hair cut became known as the “five point”.
The trio remained under the radar until 1964, when Gernreich designed his notorious topless bathing suit, dubbed the “monokini“. The bold design catapulted both Gernreich and Moffitt to stardom, as Moffitt was one of the few models bold enough at the time to model it. The two soon became more than just designer and model. Moffitt became a muse to Gernreich, and later on, a collaborator as well.
Though her film career was no more, a film entitled Who Are You, Polly Magoo? was released in which she appeared.

“With her static powerful stage presence bass playing for the Adverts at their height in 1977, Gaye (aka Gaye Atlas and named Gaye Advert by The Stranglers to get on their guest list!) was an imposing figure. As the Adverts made a few Top Of The Pops appearances fronted by Gaye’s long term ‘beau’ T.V Smith along with a dolly on a chain attached to his wrist they were soon left in the Punk wilderness and forgotten by the music media hype. Except Gaye of course with her black panda eyeliner, dark sultry looks and trademark leather jacket. of music weekly Sounds. She was seen in ligging photos with various punk celebrities e.g. Captain Sensible, Joey Ramone and Lemmy to name but a few.” – punk77
“But her visual presence hit equally hard: she caught your eye, you caught your breath. Her iconic look – battered black leather and a kohl-rimmed thousand-yard stare – drew on Suzie Quattro and Joan Jett’s effortless rocker fundamentalism rather than the try-hard iconoclasm of Jordan or Siouxsie. Gaye was punk’s terrifyingly blank, stark, dead-eyed minimalism made flesh, the girl nihilist next door.” – Velvet Coalmine
