Great music, a superb cast and a fantastic dark and witty script took this 1987 multi-BAFTA winning series to number 82 in the BFI’s top TV programmes of all time – and made household names of its stars, Robbie Coltrane (Cracker) and future Oscar winner, Emma Thompson.
The series follows the fortunes of rock and roll band The Majestics – Scotland's very own heroes of the 1960s beat boom – who re-group to play a 25th anniversary tour. Despite the death of lead singer Jazza McGlone in a freak car crash, band manager Eddie Clockerty is still determined to re-create the Majestic's halcyon days. So, in his place, the group's manager Eddie Clockerty recruits Jazza’s less-than-enthusiastic younger brother Danny.
As the group performs in some of Scotland’s less salubrious clubs and pubs, it seems their personal disagreements and private tragedies will force the band to disintegrate. Is there any way the self-styled 'Kings of Rock and Roll’ can avoid a slow self-destruction and recapture their former glories?
The Tutti Frutti sleeve was designed from hand drawn paintings commissioned especially for the release by acclaimed Scottish artist John Byrne.

Written in only a few weeks in a shed next to the Tay by acclaimed painter and polymath John Byrne, the series follows the misadventures of ageing rockers, The Majestics, as they tour the backwaters of Scotland.
It will show up much of today's British TV. It took risks. It moved at a sedate pace, stretched out in its characterisations and revelled in great dialogue. Consider that in 1987 this and the Singing Detective were on our screens. Seen anything as good as that lately?
This was the first time that Emma Thompson came to my attention. I'm from the West of Scotland myself, and when I saw this performance I assumed the actress was from Glasgow. She carried the West End accent off so well. Coltrane is of course magnificent, along with Katie Murphy and Richard Wilson, and the rest of the cast is made up of many of the stalwarts we have seen as ever shuffling bit players in Scottish TV and theatre over the years.
Absolutely unmissable stuff.
The only disappointment - the relative lack of extras; just an interview with writer John Byrne and another with Emma Thompson (which turns out to be a contemporary appearance on Terry Wogan's chat show). Perfection would have been a commentary track with Coltraine, Thompson and Wilson, though the chances of getting them all together at the same time must be practically zero, so it's no real surprise we didn't get one. But that doesn't detract from the series itself, still one of the best things that BBC Scotland has ever done.
Aging rock'n'rollers the Majestics are dusting themselves down for their Silver Jubilee tour when Big Jazza McGlone,their lead singer,is killed in a car crash.Step forward Jazza's younger brother Danny(Robbie Coltrane) whose personality is at odds with the band especially Maurice Roeves who is determined to preserve the band's leagacy at all costs and when Danny's old schoolfriend Suzy Kettles(Emma Thompson)turns up then so does the combustability of battling egos.
John Byrne's script is funny and beautifully judged with affection and cynacism in equal measure.The music is well done and the performances are magic with Roeves and Coltrane vying for top honours only for Richard Wilson to come along and steal it from underneath them as the dodgy Eddie Clockerty.
All of these stories come together so well that you can't help being engrossed and desperate to see what happens next, so if you haven't watched this DO PLEASE cos you will love it!
I'm buying this and am desperate for August (the release date) to come.

Scottish humour at its best with two masters of the art - Richard Wilson and Robbie Coltrane. So many little nuances going on in the background - look out for them. Read morePublished 5 months ago by grumpyhaggis
