Pat McCabe and Neil Jordan talk to Ireland.com/The Irish Times about Breakfast on Pluto. Author McCabe says:
“[...] I think more than anything else it was influenced by listening to the album Shag Tobacco by Gavin Friday. It has that louche thing all the way through it. The influence is not obvious, perhaps. It is subliminal. I wrote the sleeve notes for the LP. So it is almost perfect that he ended up in the film.” The erstwhile Virgin Prune turns out as the lead singer of the terrifying showband, Billy Hatchet and the Mohawks, who take on Kitten Braden, the films hero(ine), as a kind of Pocahontas.
