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
