From "New York Rock: From the Rise of The Velvet Underground to the Fall of CBGB":
"Street Punk exuded a rock star sexiness and cocksure demeanor that kept them in trouble and unrecorded (rejecting Sire and MGM deals). Jon Montgomery, a Robert Plant type from Hell's Kitchen, began Street Punk at Nobody's with guitarist Nicky Martin and pianist Bobby Blaine. Kiss loved them; they gigged together on August 10, 1973, at Hotel Diplomat, and Kiss bought but never recorded Street Punk's 'Master of Flash.' Gene introduced them to his manager Bill Aucoin, but they blew that deal too."
