The punk rock group Spicy Bits seen at Max's featured B.G. Berlin as singer, Alison East on lead guitar, Mark Edmands on drums and Kip Kuba (Gregory Pittman) on bass guitar. The final group at Max's, The Fast, included band members Miki Zone, Paul Zone and Armand Zone.
Early in the film, Elda Gentile, the lead singer of the punk rock band at Wichita Express, tells Wade Nichols that her name is "Vanessa Garbo." Toward the end of the movie, Nichols calls her "Elda" instead of her character name. Even more confusing is the on-screen cast list which credits Gentile as playing "Elda."
