Best, yet saucy documentary ever.
26 October 2017 | by mrslukearnoldSee all my reviews

Shihad were my backbone ever since I was born. I am waiting for the Australia/New Zealand tour as of next month. The Rockumentary was extremely fantastic. The 11 September 2001 attacks was quite a shock due to changing the band name all because of too many bloody people dying on that day particularly the death of my maternal Godmum.

I hope they will return for a new album soon or otherwise if not they will disband.

R.i.p Peter Kippenberger,Gerald Dwyer and of course Michael Toogood.
