Storyline

Brian Pern is one of the most respected musicians of his generation. He first gained fame as the lead singer of the progressive rock group Thotch before launching a critically acclaimed solo career in which he managed to invent world music and became the first musician to use plasticine in videos. In this series, Brian takes a look back at the history of rock in his own unique style and invites the public into his own recording studios to show how he has managed to stay relevant in an ever-changing music industry.

If this is meant to be funny it falls about as far from the funny tree as it is possible to fall. It supposes to be a satire on Peter Gabriel's career but is poorly written and with a few exceptions (Michael Kitchen being one) it merely manages to be embarrassing. Did no-one check this out first before broadcast.The guest appearances by minor celebs just about manage to be vaguely interesting, I should imagine that when they see themselves in the finished article, they will be mortified at the dreariness of it all. Simon Day is rarely funny anyway but plumbs the depths in this crap. For a biting satire it needs to have some sort of reality about it and this just has none. I wonder if the producers had some sort of hold over actors and journalist which forced them to appear because I cannot see how they can have agreed to take part. A total waste of time and a waste of usually great actors.
