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 cameras into his own recording studios to show the public how he has managed to stay relevant in an ever-changing music industry.Written by
What Spinal Tap did for heavy rock. Brian Pern has done for prog rock. This is a very well made mockumentory of 60s and 70s music and even includes contributions from genuine rock stars who all deliver there lines with such sincerity you start to believe that Brian Pern really existed! The show features some of Britains finest comic actors Paul Whitehorse, Kathy Burke, Al Murray and John Thompson. Whilst the likes of Micheal Kitchin, Surrane Jones Nigel Havers Christopher Ecclestone and Martin Freeman all make very funny cameo appearances. A must for aficionados of prog rock. 9/10
