5.0 out of 5 stars Good news from BAD NEWS, 6 Feb. 2011
By 
This review is from: Bad News (Audio CD)
Released before spinal tap (1983)this is a satirical look at the life of a rock group, It's part of the "Comic Strip Presents" and stars Adrian Edmondson,Nigel Planer, Rik Mayall and Peter Richardson. The album contains some great if awful rock tunes such as Warriors of Ghengis Khan Marturbike,Drink til I die, a cover of Bohenian Rhapsody in which May himself plays the crap guitarring and the great Hey Hey BAD News in which the crowd reassuing reply at the chorus F*ck off bad news. There is commentary on the making of songs and the collation of sound effects("flap flap flap flap, dong dong" "well whats that?, first it was a bat then a bell). "BOVINE isn't F*ckin heavy" among a long list of lines and the reflective "On a clear day you can see my penis". This is great fun a little crass and very silly. It could be released today and still be a hit. The album is a pleasure. I would listen to this with headphones though it helps with listening plesure it doesn't quite work just played on CD outright you can miss dialogue. Although if you are on a bus with your MP3 player on you will laugh out loud. The album will grow on you with Vim Fuego being a great comic character, Planer shines with his drole repose and mayall plays mayall at his best, Ricghardson is quiet but the few lines he musters are funny "Veal the album". So Baically if you like Comic Strip presents Buy this album, If you like rock music buy this album, If you like Bottom buy this album, If you just want to have fun buy this album. A guilty pleasure ENJOY
