THE SORTA LOST RAY DENNIS STECKLER FILM

MY OBSESSION WITH RAY DENNIS STECKLER, RON HAYDOCK, ARCH HALL JR. DATE WAY BACK TO THE EARLY 80S WHEN THE PIECES OF THAT PUZZLE STARTED TO COME TOGETHER VIA VIDEO & PALS LIKE MIRIAM LINNA, MICHAEL WELDON & CRAZY MOVIE NIGHTS IN THE BASEMENT OF A CHURCH AT 57 ST. MARKS PLACE (FUELED BY THE WONDERFUL INSANITY OF ANN MAGNUSON, SUSAN HANNAFORD, TOM SCULLY & BILL LANDIS-A BOOK IS IN THE WORKS ABOUT THIS GROUNDBREAKING "CLUB 57" BY ANN MAGNUSON SOON. THE CLUB WAS THE BIRTHPLACE OF MANY SCENES OF MUSIC, ART & WEIRDNESS-KEITH HARING, KENNY SCHARF, KLAUS NOMI AND MANY OTHERS WERE DOING SHOWS/PROJECTS/AND INSPIRING EACH OTHER AS ME AND MY FRIENDS FROM THE MISFITS WERE, ALONG WITH THESE PEOPLE DEVOURING EVERY MOVIE SEEN FOR THE FIRST TIME AT CLUB 57'S MONSTER MOVIE CLUB & SLEAZOID EXPRESS NIGHTS, ETC.) THE ONE EARLY STECKLER FILM I NEVER SAW & WAS NEVER RELEASED ON VIDEO WAS WILD ONES ON WHEELS, WHICH I HAVE READ WAS THE INSPIRATION FOR FASTER PUSSYCAT, KILL! KILL! THERE ARE SOME BOOT DVD COPIES AROUND NOW & BOUGHT ONE THROUGH AMAZON FROM SINISTER CINEMA...IT WAS AMAZING TO FINALLY SEE THIS! I WAS NOT LET DOWN! HERE'S A TRAILER AVAILABLE ON AN AMAZING SITE THAT WILL TAKE LOADS OF TIME AWAY FROM YOUR LIFE...HAHA...
