The guns and drugs are real. This was made with no permits and with a budget of $2000. Most of the budget was spent on the hotel room and drugs used in the film. We wanted to make a feature film so each week we wrote one scene based on what was going on in the bars. Then filmed the scenes. It took over 4 years to complete. You can see cameos from punk rock legends: Jesse malin (Heart Attack/ D Generation) Steve Bonge (Hells Angels) Handsome Dick Manitoba (The Dictators) Howie Pyro (D Generation/ DJ at Green Door parties/ Danzig/ Played with Joey Ramone) Sergio Vega (Quicksand/ Deftones/ He also has many songs in the sound track of the Soft Hustle) Paul Bearer (Sheer Terror/ Also has music in the sound track of this film) Max Huber (Swingin Utters
