Synopsis

Japanese rock band Ziggy comes to London and gets attacked upon arrival at the hotel after a recording session. The musicians barely escape the attack; however, soon they learn that their producer has been murdered, and they are the suspects! Chased by police and some mysterious organization, they find shelter at a local rockers' place and even give a performance there; but it is not too long before their pursuers appear again.

While using a product in one medium to sell a product in another medium isn’t that weird, having it completely dictate the plot is the the reason a lot of movies and TV shows end up being weird, which is what we’re looking at ...
