I came across this typeface online and love it. I found a font that's based on an allcaps version called Victor Moscoso, but I doubt he had anything to do with it.

This is one of those fonts copied/cloned/digitized in the 90's by many well known font-forgery companies. You can find it under the following names, but you should perform a more thorough investigation if you want to acquire a legitimate license to use it on a commercial project:

Thanks! Your info helped me find this: http://typophile.com/node/35379

It looks like it was called Baghdad Backslant and Psychedelic Smoke is the closest digital version.

Thanks!
