Ponsonby is an inner-city suburb of Auckland. Wolf West, Eric, Falani and Sparky lived in a flat there on behalf of Evan Lace in 1982.
Until the 1980s it contained many rundown buildings and had a colourful reputation, partially due to some criminal elements, its many Maori and Pacific Island residents and student flats and an association with Auckland's arts and gay/lesbian scenes.
In the summer of 1982, Wolf West moved into a house owned by Evan Lace on O'Neil Street with Eric, Falani and Sparky. Evan Lace paid them to keep partying and causing disturbances in the neighbourhood so the neighbours would move out and he could buy their houses at a cheap price.
