Description: A devilish, surreal nightmare of bisexual lust. [Erotic fantasy scenes reproduced in negative].

Jim Hastie, one of Cocozza's actors, recalls that the title of the film was a spoof on the feature film Expresso Bongo which was released around the time. Mark Baird, actor in film, recalls that he and his sister and friends used to hang around the Cocozza's cafe at Wishaw Cross and got involved in the film 'because it was just something to do at the time'. He thought it was going to be 'something like that Cliff Richard film that had come out at the time'. (Jan 2002)
