According to Debra Miller in the book, Billy Name Stills From the Warhol Films, in approximately July 1965, "members of the Fugs and the Holy Modal Rounders performed en masse for one of Andy Warhol's impromptu portrait reels while Billy [Name] photographed their in-house performance." It is unknown how long this film is or whether it still exists. A still taken at the time of the filming by Billy Name shows the band members as John Anderson (bass guitar), Steve Weber (rhythm guitar), Ken Weaver (conga drum), Vinnie Leary (guitar), Tuli Kupferberg (tamborine) and Ed Sanders (maracas).

Ed Sanders was also the owner of the Sanders's Peace Eye bookstore on East Tenth Street near Avenue A. Warhol knew Sanders since 1963 through Jonas Mekas and the underground film scene. Andy Warhol did banners for the Peace Eye in February of 1965 - and had also attended performances of the Fugs. (BN66)
