John “Smokey” Condon was a Baltimore outcast with big dreams and a hankering for man meat. He didn’t try to hide it, either.

He gave so few fucks that when he moved to Hollywood and hooked up with producer EJ Emmons, the two sides of their debut single were about NYC leather bars (“Leather”) and a 300-pound drag queen (“Miss Ray”), respectively.
