THE WENDY WILD STORY tells the
story of punk rock performer/artist
Wendy Wild and her wild stomping
grounds- 1980's Lower East Side.
Wendy and her rockin' friends
combined different music genres to
create tasty tunes. Her group, Das
Furlines combined punk with polka.
Her all girl percussion band
Pulsallama (according to Wendy) was
named after a popular TV commercial
for Porcelana Face Cream. A Lower
East Side production of Bye Bye
Birdie had a costume design that was
straight out of Lost In Space. Soon,
theatre-goers throughout New York
City discovered the amazing stage
shows and productions at various
Lower East Side venues like Club 57,
The Pyramid and The Mud Club
She got me, her younger brother
hooked on Dark Shadows, Universal
horror movies, The Marx Brothers,
and basically film making. My
mother's straight-laced friends felt
the city artists and rockers were
selfish and "Godless"
This film shows how these "Godless"
people came to Wendy' side at her
darkest hour. Wendy was diagnosed
with late stage breast cancer when
she was in her early thirties. Their
generosity and aid they showed
Wendy during this time made the Red
Cross look like greedy seagulls.
