Boojie Baker (Dan Conway) is an unscrupulous rock band manager who loses the group he's handling when they confront him about his larcenous business dealings. Undeterred, the arrogant Baker picks out a new band: an unsuccessful group of guys on the verge of breaking up. He promises them wine and women as long as they provide the song, along with a 50 percent cut of the take. Renamed "The Big Blast" and outfitted in snazzy outfits, Baker guides them to success with the help of his stable of sexy young go-go girls, who seduce promoters and record executives, and stage elaborate Beatlemania-style scenes. Though The Big Blast hit the charts, they're frustrated by their lack of dough and attempt to go out on their own, which prompts Baker to arrange a phony pot bust to draw them back into his camp. But the band has imploded, fighting each other and unwilling to practice, so when Baker sets up an important network television appearance, disaster is imminent and the sinister manager gets his just desserts. Fried chicken entrepreneur Harland Sanders makes a brief cameo as himself in this sleazy look at rock & roll's seamy underbelly.
