Dope-oriented comedians Cheech and Chong throw together this band in their 1978 comedy film Up In Smoke. They appear in a battle of the bands against real L.A. punkers The Dils, The Whores, and The Berlin Brats at real L.A. punk club The Roxy.
In reality, C & C released the novelty song "Earache My Eye" by flamboyant "Alice Bowie" four years earlier on their Cheech and Chong's Wedding Album, where it hit #9 on the U.S. charts. Apparently, he also had a song called "I'm A Man," according to Bob Greene's 1974 account of his tour with the real Alice Cooper, Billion Dollar Baby.
