Cinematic Time Capsule 1983 Marathon - Film #13

”It’s a statement on …🤔…. …I’ll tell ya later.”

This mocumentary follows an incompetent heavy-ish metal band as they embark on their "tour" (apparently only one gig)… and are documented by an almost equally inept documentary film crew.

Thankfully, the gig is considered to be a thing that actually happened, and was even witnessed by four folks and an adorable terrier.

”Ya, didn’t let the dog in free, did ya?”

This wonderful bit of idiocy was created by the lads who’d later achieve infamy as The Young Ones.

Oh, and by pure coincidence, this chaotic heavy metal mockumentary just happened to be in production at the exact same time as Spinal Tap……

I'm sorry but this pisses all over Spinal Tap, and it came before it.

1983 In Review - May #8

A documentary crew films heavy metal band Bad News as they have trouble starting their van, pick up a schoolgirl groupie, and meet up with rock journalist Sally at a motorway service station.

Hilarious antics as The Comic Strip do their version of Spinal Tap. I believe they were both in production at the same time, although this was released a year earlier.  Ade Edmonson writes and stars as Vim Fuego the leader of a terribly bad heavy metal band which sees member Rik Mayall, Nigel Planer and Peter Richardson argue and bicker about everything. Essential viewing for fans of Rik and Ade.

Review by Eltopo68 ★★★½

Don't get me wrong, this is funny stuff, but contrary to some of the reviews on here, this is no "Spinal Tap". The one thing it does better is portray the band as more of a real metal band. The guys in "Spinal Tap" are a little too clever in playing dumb. These guys are just straight up stupid and as a metal fan and having hung around the scene for going on four decades, these is a lot of stupid in metal. I am not excluding myself from this equation. I've had too many nights of falling down drunk after some awesome German thrash, but I've outgrown that now. Until the next show.

Richard Auty

Review by Richard Auty ★★★★★ 2

Not a movie but a 30 minute episode of the 80s comedy series Comic Strip Presents, but as it's on here I thought I'd log it.

I think this and its even better sequel More Bad News taken together makes a superior film to This is Spinal Tap (and I give Spinal Tap 5 stars). I cannot begin to express my love for Bad News. It's so quotable and despite it being probably more than two decades since I last watched it, I could recall almost every line of dialogue.

PS I stand with Den Dennis re the sausage fiasco.

Will Kruk

Review by Will Kruk ★★★★

"I mean, I could play stairway to heaven when I was 12 Jimmy Page didn't write it till he was 22. I think that says a lot". This movie is so much better than Spinal Tap.

gibson8

Review by gibson8 ★★★★ 1

Has more musical integrity than Tap because it eschews the punning lyrics.

Zulu_Shaun

Review by Zulu_Shaun ★★★★

A while ago I rewatched Mr Jolly Lives Next Door and found it not as funny as I remembered. This however is definitely as funny as I remember it. As British as This Is Spinal Tap is American. Even down to it's lack of needing a feel good ending. Love Rik and Ade of course but I really do think Nigel Planer is the star of this one.

I L<3ve Musicals!

It seems apt to give this a spin on the sixth anniversary of Rik Mayall's death: here's the first in the mockumentary duo of films about the greatest metal band of them all, Bad News.

With Vim (Adrian Edmondson), Den (Nigel Planer), Colin (Mayall) and Spider (Peter Richardson) rocking the long hair and the terraced house vibes, this is Spinal Tap before that was even thought of. It's a testosterone heavy depiction of life on the road, and the Comic Strip's first really good film.

The songs were co-written with the late Simon Brint, who later teamed up with Rowland Rivron as Raw Sex .

MargotDeLarge

Review by MargotDeLarge ★★★½

Rik Mayall AND Dawn French. That’s really all that needs to be said.

The Comic Strip Presents...

Colin Grigson: [trying to sound cool] Uh, yeah, thanks, Mrs Grigson.

Colin's mum: No need to be so formal Colin. After all, I am your mother. [he cringes]

Helen: [voice over] Now all that Spider needs to do is convince his wife to let him join the group again.

Spider Web: Darling, would it be all right if I got back together with the band?

Spider's wife: Hmmm. [pause]

Spider's wife: All right

Vim Fuego: [surprised] That went rather well.

Carlos: I don't think I like this place.

Miguel: I don't think I like you.

Carlos: I don't think I heard that.

Miguel: I don't think I said it.

Carlos: I don't think... therefore I am.

Mr. Bastardos: [singing] Everybody happy? Oh la la la la la!

Miguel: [complaining to hotel manager] How come there's no soft toilet paper?

Mr. Bastardos: This is the "Hotel Bastardos"! You want the soft toilet paper? You go to the Hotel Gayboy!

Vim Fuego: I could play "Stairway To Heaven" when I was 12. Jimmy Page didn't actually write it until he was 22. I think that says quite a lot.

Vim Fuego: I mean, we'd be as rich as the Stones if only we'd sold as many records as them.

Den Dennis: You're lucky I don't knock your f***in' head in.

Sandy Johnson: There's no need to get violent, is there? And try not to swear so much, please, for the sake of this film...

Den Dennis: You can always put in a f***ing bleep, can't you?

Cashier: Two pounds and five pence, please, love.

Den Dennis: Two quid? Two quid for one bloody sausage?

Cashier: That's right, love. Two pounds and five pence.

Den Dennis: Right, where's the camera? [Holds sausage up to camera] Look. [to cashier] What's the name of this place? [Cashier backs away] Well, anyway, it's a rip-off. Look, they're charging two quid for one bloody sausage! So don't come here!

Cashier: It was clearly marked, love. Sausage, beans and chips, two pounds and five pence.

Den Dennis: Well, I haven't got two quid, have I? Can I have half a sausage for a quid?

Cashier: No you can't.

Mrs. Moss: Always put a dead badger on a head wound.

Mrs. Moss: I may be a loveable old cockney racist, but I do like my reggae music.

Pauline Sneak: I don't want to go on Wogan with a man who makes things - this isn't the seventies.

Carl Moss: Consider the ways of the grebe. They swim, they fly, but do they road test bicycles? Do they, shite.

Neighbour: Well?

Bean: Well?

Neighbour: What do you want?

Bean: The usual things... peace, happiness

Neighbour: and you got me off the lavatory to tell me this?

Bean: I didn't get you off the lavatory

Neighbour: Well somebody got me off the lavatory

Bean: Were you stuck?

Neighbour: What?

[Outside shot of George and Anne's tent; Timmy the dog is poking his head inside and wagging his tail]

George: Oh, Timmy! You're so licky!

Anne: You shouldn't let him do that, George, it's not hygienic.

George: But we like it! Don't we, Timmy?

[repeated line]

Julian, Dick, Anne, George: And lashings of ginger beer!

Dick: [pointing at the black station porter pushing their luggage on a trolley] I say, Ju! That man looks foreign!

George: Yes, I expect his name's 'Golliwog'!

Anne: [giggles] Yes, or Tarzan!

Julian: I think we'd better call the police just as soon as we get back to Kirrin Cottage.

Dick: Thanks, Anne. You really are a proper little housewife. Not like George, she still thinks she's a boy!

George: I think it's stupid being a girl. I wish I was a boy.

Dick: Really, George! It's about time you gave up thinking you're as good as a boy. I mean, Anne is just a girl, but she doesn't mind, do you, Anne?

George: Well, I absolutely do mind, actually!

Julian: Steady on, you two, the hols have only just started.

Anne: [putting her hand on his arm] You seem so grown up, Julian.

Dick: Oh, wizard!

Dick: [thanking the shopkeeper] You really are a brick!

Toby Thurlow: [looking at Anne's breasts] You're pretty well developed for a 10 year old.

[Julian and George find a rundown hut with rusting cars, bank safes and coffins lying around outside]

Julian: Look, that car's got no motor tax.

George: Maybe it belongs to an illegal immigrant.

Julian: I shouldn't be surprised.

George: What a strange, desolate place.

[Julian knocks on the door. A huge, hairy man wearing a tatty string vest and sunglasses steps out]

Dirty Dick: [Cockney accent] Yeah?

Julian: Ah, good evening. Uh, we're the Famous Five and we're camping down by the lake and we need some food. We'd like some free range eggs, you own home-baked bread, some of your own cured bacon and your own honey and some tomatoes from your garden would do splendidly.

Dirty Dick: Oh yeah? What do think this is, 'Arrods? Come on, piss off now! And don't speak to any coppers about me!

Julian: I don't think I really like the tone of your voice.

Fingers: [offscreen - also has a Cockney accent] 'Oo's that, then Dick? It's not the rozzers, I 'ope!

Dirty Dick: Nah, just a couple of smarmy brats!

Fingers: Tell 'em to scarper! There's some more dirty work to do.

George: Wait a minute! You must be Dirty Dick.

Dirty Dick: [nervous] No, no, my name's not Dirty Dick. It's er, it's er... Dirty Douglas!

Julian: Look here. There's something very queer going on. What exactly are you doing in there?

Dirty Dick: Oh, so you've tumbled our game, have you?

Fingers: What's that? What's that? Are we done for, Dirty?

Dirty Dick: Sorry, Fingers. I'm afraid we're bang to rights this time.

Fingers: Let's make a run for it, Dirty! You start the car while I grab the sparklers. We can still get away with it!

Dirty Dick: It's no good, Fingers! These kids are far too clever for us! We'll get 15 years each for this!

Fingers: Oh, no! Not another stretch in clink! I'm gonna take the easy way out!

[sound of a gunshot, then a thud]

George: Urgh! What a horrid, common voice he's got!

Dirty Dick: Oh well, I suppose I'd better go down to the police station and get nicked, then.

Anne: Oh, do wipe your feet, Dick, I've only just dusted there.

Dick: My word, Anne, you really are a proper little housewife! It must be awful being a girl and having to do all the work.

Anne: Well, yes, it would be nice to do some of the more exciting things that you boys do. Still, I don't mind being dominated. At least I'm quiet and pretty and not like poor George.

Julian: I say, where's young Toby got to?

Dick: Oh, he's been kidnapped.

Julian: Typical.

George: Serves him right for being nouveau riche!

Anne: Yes, and Jewish!

[they laugh]

Dirty Dick: Right. Let's run through our evil plan once more, Mr. Knuckles.

Fingers: Right you are, Mr. Lenin.

[inside the tent]

Dick: [whispering] Wake up, Ju. I can hear voices.

Julian: I can't hear anything.

Dick: Listen. There it is again.

Fingers: Blah, blah, blah, stolen plans, blah, blah, blah, missing scientist, blah, blah, blah.

Fingers: Blah, blah, blah, atom bomb, blah, blah, blah, Third World War, blah, blah, blah.

Fingers: Blah, blah, blah, Kneecap Hill, blah, blah, blah, top secret, blah, blah, blah, kidnapped boy, blah, blah, blah, everything ties up, blah, blah, blah.

Dick: Shh! Missing scientists? Kneecap Hill? Do me a favour? Big secret? What do you think it all means?

Julian: I'm not sure, Dick, but it all sounds very queer!

Anne: Gosh, Isn't it sad to think there are people in the world who are starving?

George: Yes I suppose it is, but if they didn't breed like rabbits there'd be more to go round

Anne: Yes that's true

Julian: Mind you, half of them die in childbirth so it must all even out in the end, I suppose.

Anne: Oh dear, I do wish there was something we could do to help

Dick: Poor old Anne, just like a girl to get het up on world problems on a lovely day like this

George: Well it doesn't worry me

Julian: I agree with Dick, Africa's miles away from here, come on let's enjoy the hols.

Ian Crisp: So, the bottom line is, none of us is qualified to actually make a decision.

Tim: What do you do?

Angie: I'm a typist?

Tim: Oh really? I thought you were a prostitute.

Angie: Charming.

Tim: How much do you charge? Take a cheque do you?

Tim: Tim stop it! Tim stop it! Tim stop it! Tim stop it! That's a typical Franny remark. Franny's a nymphomaniac too aren't you Franny?

Gordon: I've tried several of the TV companies... BASTARDs, it's too controversial that's the problem. I mean I could write that sh*t but what's the point in compromising?

Gordon: This is a good bit. This guy's you're age and he meets a sailor at the pub, he says "I bet she's good at it" nodding to the girl at the bar. The sailor "Not me mate, I'm queer, what do you see in girls? I don't know". It's supposed to be North Country I can't do the accent.

Milk Policeman: I was just thinking on the way up here, Gino, What's the boy done? He's robbed a post office, stolen a few cars and I thought what's that worth? About 5 years, maybe 3 years with good behavior... Out there Gino there are 50 armed bully boys offering certain death in the event of an injury to a fellow officer, so I thought what would I do in your position? Come down the station for a chat or die in a hail of bullets?

Gino: Yeah I saw what you did to that Mini you arsehole.

Milk Policeman: Then I thought you lucky bastard, what a celebrity, paper's queuing to buy your story , you know chequebook journalism? Film producers paying thousands for the film rights. I thought, that's crime for you, three years in the nick and you wind up a millionaire.

Vim Fuego: Yeah, "Warrior of Genghis Khan" is a political song.

Sally: Burning looting raping shooting, repeat.

Vim Fuego: Well I guess it's more poetical political

Sally: Isn't it just macho-male egotistical dominance along with orgiastic blood letting and violence against women?

Den Dennis: Yeah, that's the bits I like.

Colin Grigson: [the camera has seen him in his business suit] No. No, er... I'm not Colin, I'm... I'm... I'm Trevor. I'm Trevor, Colin's twin brother. If you want Colin, he'll probably be round at his pad... because he's frightfully... groovy.

Colin Grigson: Come along, then, lets do all the rumpty dumpty bismila business, then we can all get off home and get some kip. I've got to be up working at the bank at 9:30.

Vim Fuego: If you were playing a G, then I'm a queer!

Spider Web: We've always had our doubts about you, Vim.

Den Dennis: Yeah, well, maybe you are bloody queer!

Rachel: I have booked you, Bad News, to play the Monsters of Rock festival, Castle Donington.

Colin Grigson: Another heavy-metal day. No sleep until Castle Donington. Better have some vibes.

Vim Fuego: Donington, I mean it's just unbelievable, it's like the heavy-metal centre of the universe and Bad News are going to be there... this is big league, all we have to do now is blow Ozzy of the stage.

Lemmy: I thought Bad News hit a new high in altruistic, self-indulgent. bullshit. mollycoddled mother my dog instinct rock and roll. I thought it was the worst kind of pimply sh*t of the worst kind of city ghetto probably populated by winos, junkies and general all round f***-ups.

Mr. Jolly: Look, just because my second name is Jolly doesn't mean I have to be jolly all the f***ing time!

Mr. Jolly: And no-one knows you're here?

[Nicholas Parsons knocks on Mr Jolly's door]

Mr. Jolly: [calling through door] Who is it?

Nicholas Parsons: Nicholas Parsons.

Mr. Jolly: F*** off.

Nicholas Parsons: I said Nicholas Parsons.

Mr. Jolly: I know, f*** off. I don't care if you're Bob Monkhouse, f*** off.

Nicholas Parsons: Do you think I could use your telephone?

[Mr Jolly opens the door]

Mr. Jolly: Do I have to spell it out? F-U...

Nicholas Parsons: What is this game?

Dreamytime Escort: [drunkenly] Well, these are the rules.

Nicholas Parsons: Yes?

Dreamytime Escort: I go out of the room.

Dreamytime Escort: Then...

Dreamytime Escort: I come back in.

Dreamytime Escort: You got that?

Nicholas Parsons: Yes.

Dreamytime Escort: Right. I'll go first.

Dreamytime Escort, Dreamytime Escort: Escorts, bescorts - Come in if you're saucy!

Dreamytime Escort: Nicholas bloody Parsons!

Dreamytime Escort: Morning, Ralph, how's the fluffy toy business?

Mr. Jolly: Who the bloody hell are you, what fluffy...Oh, brilliant, yeah.

Dreamytime Escort: Well, that's Fattie's money out of the window.

Dreamytime Escort: And Fattie.

Dreamytime Escort: Well, it's his own fault. You shouldn't play "let's see who can fall out of the window the best" when you're drunk.

Dreamytime Escort: Not on the 18th floor, no.

Dreamytime Escort: All I'm saying is that one advertisement in the Times saying, "What are you doing this weekend, fancy getting drunk?" won't work. You've got to put the telephone number!

Dreamytime Escort: But we know the telephone number!

Dreamytime Escort: [answering phone] Dreamytime Escorts! Ah-ha...ah-ha...er, ah-ha...yeah, ah-ha...ah-ha-ha-ha-ha...ah-ha, ah-ha-haa...ah-ha...ah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha...ah-ha...ah-haa-haa-haa...errr...okay!

Dreamytime Escort: What was that?

Dreamytime Escort: Wrong number.

[they sigh]

Dreamytime Escort: Only joking! It's an engagement for this morning, ten o'clock. A Mr Yakimoto.

Dreamytime Escort: Oh God. Another French bastard.

Dreamytime Escort: God bless Heimi Henderson.

Dreamytime Escort: Living above an off-license, what could be better?

Dreamytime Escort: Living in one?

Dreamytime Escort: You're right. We must become a lot more friendly with Heimi Henderson.

Dreamytime Escort: What's Mr Jolly got that we haven't got?

Dreamytime Escort: Our bloody Fairy Liquid.

Dreamytime Escort: One thousand, five hundred and seventy four gin and tonics please Monica.

Dreamytime Escort: LARGE ones.

Policeman: Are you drunk, sir?

Dreamytime Escort: Of course I am, I'm out of my bloody mind, I've just spent three thousand quid in there.

Dreamytime Escort: So, Nicholas. I suppose you spend most of your time opening supermarkets and heliports, these days.

Nicholas Parsons: Well, yes. You... You know how it is. As a matter of fact tomorrow I am opening an off-license.

Dreamytime Escort: [both Dreamytime Escorts stare at Nicholas] You're opening an off-license?

Nicholas Parsons: Yes, an off-license.

Dreamytime Escort: GOD! Imagine being so important you can open an off-license!

Dreamytime Escort: And we're with him right now, aren't we Nicky baby?

Dreamytime Escort: Yes yes yes, it's a fantastic house, Nicholas. Now. Have you got any dirty films?

Nicholas Parsons: No!

Dreamytime Escort: You BASTARD!

Nicholas Parsons: What exactly was your winning slogan?

Dreamytime Escort: Never, ever, bloody anything ever!

Nicholas Parsons: And that was your winning slogan?

Dreamytime Escort: That's the one, Nicky. I've lived my life by that rule.

Nicholas Parsons: "I would like to spend an evening with Nicholas Parsons because...never, ever, ever, bloody anything ever"?

Dreamytime Escort: You're pissed, aren't you, Nicholas?

Mr. Lovebucket: Now if you don't kill Nicholas Parsons by twelve o'clock, I'll kill you. Make it tidy.

[puts down a handgun]

Mr. Lovebucket: But if you can't do that, make it messy.

[one of Mr Jolly's henchmen puts down a chainsaw]

Henchman #2: Yeah. And if you can't make it messy...

[puts down a pair of hand grenades]

Henchman #2: ...make it noisy.

Henchman #3: And if you can't make it noisy...make it stupid.

[puts down a stuffed toy rabbit]

Dreamytime Escort: [cut to scene mid-conversation]... and she said "Well, I don't think you're a fishmonger. I think you've done a plop in the wrong lavatory."

Boy Madness: Concerning Squealer: One day, when I've got time, and I'm not busy, I'm gonna take all his skin off.

Little Sister: Little Sister To Ricki, both aged nearly 18: When we're old and 25 we can get married.

[Stan and Billy are holding Mary hostage. Her estranged Bank manger, husband Max has just come in to pick up a few things. He realises that Mary is not alone and that Stan and Billy are carrying loaded weapons]

Max: Mary, Mary. There's no necessity for s. I'm not a violent man. You know that. All I came for was a clean pair of socks and the wedding photograph and I'll be right out...

Mary: Shut up Max! These men want to rob your bank. They're going to hold me hostage while you go the bank and get the money.

Billy: There's six million in there. We want it all.

Max: [Looking at a clock's he's tucked away in his overcoat pocket] It's closed now.

Billy: Well open it.

Stan: yeah, you've the keys. We've seen you.

Max: Yeah, well I have but unfortunately the vault's on a time clock. Nobody can open it till tomorrow.

Billy: What we going to do Stan?

Max: I know. You can stay here tonight. I'll cook dinner.

Billy: What we having?

Max: What about Risotto?

Billy: Sounds poncy.

Stan: No Billy. I like Risotto. Do you wanna hand?

[Mary gives an annoyed look. She's clearly not amused by the odd situation]

Passenger: I'll have a bloody Mary.

Billy: We've only got bloody lager.

Needle: I'm a cold heartless space b*tch and I'm here to get pregnant, understand?

Ursula: So Pete

Peter: Umm Peter, I prefer Peter

Ursula: Yes I think I might prefer Peter... to all the other men here

Peter: Really? umm... what's your name?

Ursula: Ursula but you can call me Urs

Peter: Ursula right?

Ursula: So Peter

Ursula: Is your seed plenteous?

Susie: Yes Lucy?

Lucy Schoolchild: It's not ten past yet

Susie: I must say I'm finding it very hard to relate to you these days, why do you have to be so pernickety all the time?

Lucy Schoolchild: How do you spell pernickety miss?

Susie: F-U-C-K-O-double F, Okay?

Brian Epstein: Starting first of June, 12 weeks, all right? Top of the bill, Lena Martell; Bimbo the Performing Dog; Zelda the Hypnotist...

Michael White: What's he done?

Brian Epstein: What's he done? He's done 12 weeks at Blackpool, that's all he's done. Alright, no, listen... compere-cum-comic, he doubles up, you win at both ends, Johnny Clamp, right? You can't go wrong. And the music, we've got a lovely little combo... [consults scrap of paper] called The Beatles. Right? There you go. Joan of Arc haircuts and rock n' roll, the kids love it.

Michael White: What do they do?

Brian Epstein: What do they do? About fifteen minutes, they're good for a fill, they're excellent.

Michael White: Alright, I'll tell you what I'll do. Drop the hypnotist; I like Joan of Arc, I'll take the combo.

Eleanor: What's it like to be successful, Alan?

Alan: Success? Well, it's like going to an orgy in clean underpants.

Eleanor: Oh, wow!

Alan: It's Marlon Brando throwing up in your bathroom.

Eleanor: Oh, crazy!

Charles: [to Kurt] This is a copy of Alan's latest book. I think you're going to love it, Kurt. It's one hundred percent pure guaranteed filth, and I'm not just saying that.

Jeremy: [on telephone] Look, I don't care if you're happily married and you've got four kids and you've emigrated to Australia. Why can't we just forget all that and start again, for God's sake!

Charles: [to Alan]... and do you know what he did then? He took an ordinary drinking straw, and cut a little nick, and put the straw into the nick and blew the whole thing up to the size of a balloon. And then he said, "D'you want to play pat-ball?"

[Kix is working under the sink with a wrench]

Kix: See, the thing is Des, lead's very valuable 'cause it's heavy. You see, the heavier something is, the more valuable it is. The only exception to this rule is concrete.

[Jeremy is furiously painting the lawn with a large paintbrush]

Anne: Hey wow, that's crazy, what are you doing?

Jeremy: Well it's pretty obvious, isn't it?

Anne: Look, I know this may sound really crass, Jeremy, but I like you. You know, I like your style. I like your naked agression. I really like the way you don't sleep at night.

Jeremy: [even more angrily] Well, people think it's easy to be a rebel. Well, it bloody isn't! People just write stroppy plays about me. God it makes me so mad!

Desmond: Pretty free here, isn't it?

Charles: Well, I'm not paying.

[Desmond and Eleanor are in bed. Desmond is frantically licking Eleanor's cheek and Eleanor is reading a magazine. Alan sits on the end of the bed]

Alan: I don't think this sex thing is happening, Desmond. Eleanor looks bored.

Desmond: Is she?

Alan: Eleanor?

Eleanor: What?

Alan: When Desmond's doing that to you, does the earth move at all?

Eleanor: [sighs] No, only the bed.

Kix: How old are you?

Judy: Fourteen.

Kix: Got any younger sisters?

[Judy shakes her head]

Kix: Or pets?

Eleanor: [Enters on crutches] Alan, Alan, look, I did it. I've finally cut it off.

Alan: Where's the leg?

Eleanor: At the hospital.

Alan: But it's the leg we're interested in.

Bad News: “Rik Mayall couldn’t play bass, but that just made it funnier…”

As legendary British spoof-metal heroes Bad News release their first track in three decades, Axogram (as Almost Bad News), comedy legend Nigel Planer tells us about this sort-of return, creating one of British TV’s funniest icons, and getting bottled at Donington.

Bad News: “Rik Mayall couldn’t play bass, but that just made it funnier…”

In 1983, Bad News made their first appearance on British TV. Following the budding NWOBHM quartet as they travelled to a gig in Grantham, singer/guitarist Alan 'Vim Fuego' Metcalfe, guitarist Den Dennis, bassist Colin Grigson and drummer Spyder Webb became sensations overnight.

Sort of. A full year before the release of This Is Spinal Tap, Bad News Tour perfected the art of the rockumentary, as an episode of Channel 4 comedy caravan Comic Strip Presents. Starring British comedy legends Nigel Planer (as dopey but lovable guitarist Den), Adrian Edmondson (egotistical frontman-cum-painter-and-decorator Vim), Rik Mayall (secret-posh-lad bassist Colin) and Peter Richardson (Spyder, the only drummer his bandmates knew who could vomit the perfect amount into a pint glass), as well as Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders, it was somewhere between Iron Maiden and The Young Ones.

The episode fully captured the realities of life on the road for a struggling British metal band – broken vans, bad service station food, arguments over nothing, and quickly became a cult hit for its realism that celebrated the unslick crapness of reality. In 1986, they were invited to play Monsters Of Rock at Donington, alongside Ozzy , Motörhead , Scorpions and Def Leppard . The latter's guitarist Phil Collen would, in their second documentary, 1988's More Bad News, talk to a camera backstage to deadpan: "I'm Phil Collen from Def Leppard, and I think they're shit."

But this was all part of it. Even more than Spinal Tap, Bad news were – and remain – relatable to anyone who's ever attempted the apparently impossible task of moving four musicians somewhere in a van at the same time, or get your guitarist to play the right chord in the studio. Queen guitarist Brian May loved them so much he produced their self-titled 1986 debut album. AFI named their Answer That And Stay Fashionable debut album in tribute.

Now, Den Dennis returns under the banner Almost Bad News, with a new song, Axogram. As Nigel Planer explains, it was an idea seeded by the enduring love for the show and the band. And an old track that didn't make it onto the first album it may be, but it's still heavy metal, heavy metal, heavy metal – have we said it enough?!?!

Where did Axogram come from? “Well the song was actually written at the time, 1985/6, something like that, but it never made it onto the album. It was a bit more complicated than most Bad News songs. I wrote the song, and it’s the only one that wasn't collectively written. We learned it and played it to the producer, who went, ‘I don't think so,’ because it's quite a difficult one to play. And the producer was Brian May, so we had to do what we were told!

“It's a bit more elaborate than the Bad News style, the way it's been put together by the producer, Luke Smith, with Ben Hill [who also runs Bad News fan page Warriors Of Genghis Khan]. I think they've even used some bootleg stuff on it from previous Bad News. So there's quite a lot of history in it. But because of the singing style, the fact that it's tight and keeps changing, it wasn't quite a Bad News song at the time. And I've always had it in my mind to do it, because it was never recorded before.”

When did you get the idea to pick it up again? “Well, I bumped into a Ben, who runs a Bad News fan page. We got to know each other, and then I saw that he does quite a lot of music himself. He's very good at copying styles, he's done some very funny ones, like a hippy band, a kind of Donna Summer band. We were at the Slapstick Festival Of Comedy doing a Bad News event, myself and Peter Richardson [AKA Bad News drummer Spyder Webb], and Ben came along to see it. Somebody asked, ‘What do you think was the best Bad News song?’ and Peter said, ‘It's the one we never recorded.’ So I challenged them. I said, ‘Well go on, go and work on that.’ I did a stupid little acoustic guitar thing into my phone, wrote it down with the chords and just sent it to them, and they came back with all of that. Really excellent. They've even made it sound crap in the right places. So it's proper Bad News.”

“In lockdown, I had a bit of space, and I remembered all the songs I've ever written and started to record them. They're on my Bandcamp channel. I got my guitar out, and found I could remember the lyrics and chords. Which was amazing. And I wrote them down this time.”

Where did you do it? “A mad studio they've got in the middle of nowhere. Literally, like, a concrete hut somewhere in the middle of a field. Proper old-school studio. That was really good fun, to let rip. I did a load of music during lockdown on Bandcamp , all little psychedelic folk songs and stuff. You can't get loud in your bedroom, though, but out in the middle of nowhere you can let rip and do some screaming.”

How was it getting back into the mind of Den Dennis after so long? “It was good. I really enjoyed it. It sort of comes naturally. I suppose I spent, not long, a day or two, maybe, in the back of my mind thinking Den thoughts before the recording. It doesn’t just turn up out of the blue after 40 years, but it's not a big bit of work. You just have to be like, ‘What would Den think about this? What would Den do here?’”

Bad News have become beloved among musicians and metal fans, like Spinal Tap, because it’s all still really relatable to anyone involved in music – the arguments, the problems, the stupid decisions… “There's a difference between us and Spinal Tap, though. They're playing an English band, but they're playing that very rare thing, which is some very successful people – Spinal Tap are a big, successful international band. And Americans, I don't think they could handle Bad News – people who are just crap . All the stuff in there, backstabbing each other, and being up against everything that the UK will throw at you, like the van, the motorway, the sausages, or lack of sausages, all that frustration, it's a different humour. And I think English audiences can see themselves in that more. Spinal Tap might be a fantasy about what it would be like if you were a rock star. But Bad News is more like what it's really like down here as a hopeless band. I'm sure Americans can be crap too, but they wouldn't want to make a film about it because they don't like losers, whereas we love them.”

Going back, how did Bad News come about in the first place? “I was in a double act with Peter. He lived in a van and he had this drum kit, and I play guitar, and we had a rock theatre show, from which Neil and lots of other characters came, before The Young Ones. We were trying to be like Frank Zappa’s 200 Motels – half entertainment theatre, half rock band. We actually did some tours – we supported AC/DC at one gig, and we supported Motörhead! We played lots of characters and we had the experiences of being crap and on tour, so that was Den and Spyder accounted for.

“Adrian [Edmondson, Vim Fuego] had been trying to make it in bands all his life, and can actually play pretty well. I can actually sing – or, I could then – but the way I sing wasn't appropriate. It's better having Adrian's voice, so that’s how he became singer. As for Rik Mayall [Colin Grigson], he wasn’t a musician, he was a comedian. So we told him how to move his finger up and down one string on the bass, but that was just perfect for the character. It made him funnier.

“I can't remember whose idea it was to do it as Bad News. We were making the Comic Strip films, so we put in ideas. And the idea was, ‘Let's do a band’. One thing we found funny was, there was a recording called The Troggs Tape, you know the band who did Wild Thing? It’s them in the studio with the tape running while they argue, and it’s brilliant. It's very Bad News. Like, the drummer can’t play the song – ‘But you already did it once this evening!’ Their complete inability to make the studio work for them is hilarious.”

What I always liked about Den was that he had a certain innocence to him. Vim was the ego-frontman, Colin was a poser who was at odds with Vim, Spyder was cool but crazy… “…And then poor old Den’s just trying to play the guitar! But musically, that's kind of how it worked live. We needed Rik being funny. Peter's drum fills are not very heavy metal, he's all over the place. And so, rhythm guitar is basically trying to keep the whole machine going. There's no fancy guitar work from me, because Peter and Rik, who should have been the rhythm section, they were just all over the place. But that's so good for the character as well. It's down to Den to actually keep the structure. He's like a workhorse.”

You played at Donington in 1986 with Ozzy, Motörhead, Def Leppard and Scorpions. The bit where you’re walking up the ramp to the stage, you all look petrified, like, ‘Oh shit, we’re actually doing this…’ “Yeah, that bit where the camera follows us, then goes to the crowd. That still puts my bollocks up into my stomach. It was very, very scary, actually. You can see on our faces just realising, ‘This is suicide’. And they were throwing things. The guy who introduced us, Tommy Vance, he went onstage wearing an American football helmet. Lemmy was telling us, ‘You're insane, letting them throw things at you. You have to stop them cos you could get a coin in your head!’ It was seriously frightening, and then the equipment didn't work for the first 20 minutes. Some comedian thought they would add to the fun. But I'm glad we did it. It was good fun. What a treat.”

The montage with the other bands is amazing as well, where they’re all saying how terrible you were… “Yeah that was fun. The guitarist from Scorpions [Rudi Schenker] just there with his German accent: ‘Bad News? Scheisse! ’ And Lemmy’s long bit about it, where he’s being really articulate and cutting us down, is just amazing.”

Brian May produced the first Bad News album. What was that like? “He was brilliant. He and I spent time together years later working on the original production of We Will Rock You. The reason we've got the second album was out of the contractual obligation, but the reason we had the material was because he just left the mics on throughout the recording period, and we stayed in character. So all of the stuff on the album between the songs when we're arguing with each other, that's just us fucking about. And the second album is entirely us fucking about. It must have cost a fortune, but Brian was so generous with his time and with the whole thing, because he just loved the whole concept of it. We're really grateful for that because, what an insane thing for him to do! It was six weeks in one of the most expensive studios in London where there was, like, Tears For Fears next door, Pet Shop Boys in another room…”

How do you feel about the legacy of Bad News, that all these years later people still really like it and they’re held quite dear by people? “I'm delighted that people are enjoying it again. I suppose there's people like Ben, who've kept the flag flying and keep it going. But I couldn't think of a reason why [people like it so much]. I see it sort of like Dad's Army. I just love the characters, the jokes, that whole setup. And you just want to return to that world because it makes you laugh and you somehow warm to the hopelessness of those people. Bad News is a funny analogy to make, being a heavy metal band and all that, but it's kind of like Dad's Army, you just like being in that world with those people because they resonate with you. And it's very English, I think, as well.”

Biden teams up with ‘star wars’ actor mark hamill for cringey ‘may the 4th be with you’ video, gets ripped online.

We had a very good feeling about this. May the 4th be with you, America. pic.twitter.com/uZVS5qHkcG — President Biden (@POTUS) May 4, 2024

He’s from a galaxy far, far away.

President Biden shared a Star Wars Day clip to X Saturday, featuring a celestial White House visitor — which was quickly ripped by social media users as lame.

“May the 4th be with you,” the Commander-in-Chief bellowed as he solemnly stared into the camera.

That’s when Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill swooped into the frame to deliver a pointed: “Always.”

Biden and Hamill in the post.

The serious pair stood chest to chest, leaving just enough room between them for the portrait of Franklin D. Roosevelt hanging on the Oval Office wall to stare down at their tomfoolery.

The five-second clip garnered 4.8 million views within hours of being posted — and racked up plenty of replies ridiculing the duo.

“A dementia patient and a homeless drunk,” comedian Tim Young taunted.

“The most hilarious thing is that Joe is in Delaware right now and has already forgotten he said this,” wrote conservative account Black Suit.

Another user wrote: “The national embarrassment continues.”

Actor Mark Hamill joins White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre at the daily press briefing at the White House on May 03, 2024 in Washington, DC.

The video was shared just one day after Hamill, 72, made a surprise visit to the White House press room wearing a pair of aviator shades he said the president had gifted him.

He claimed he just ended a visit with Biden — presumably when they pair shot the awkward clip.

Actor Mark Hamill takes off sunglasses given to him by President Joe Biden.

“He said, ‘You can call me Joe,’” the actor recounted.

“And I said, ‘Can I call you  Joe-bi-Won Kenobi? ‘ And he liked that.”

The actor has been an outspoken backer of both Biden and Israel amid widespread protests and riots on college campuses opposed to the president’s support for the Jewish state’s ongoing invasion of the Gaza Strip targeting the Hamas terror organization.

Hamill used his time at the White House presser to gush about Biden’s performance — as polls show the president with a dismal average approval rating of  40.1%  as he seeks re-election in November, dragged down by what polls show is broad frustration over high inflation and illegal immigration.

Bad Bunny Hops to the Top of March Boxscore Report With Almost $65 Million

Bad Bunny

See latest videos, charts and news

Lovers & Friends Festival 2024 Canceled Due to Severe Weather in Las Vegas

Trending on billboard.

Bad Bunny pulls out of a tie with Beyoncé and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra to have the second-most monthly wins, trailing only Elton John with seven.

Bad Bunny’s biggest stops during March were in Los Angeles and Chicago. Three nights in each city score him Nos. 2-3 on Top Boxscores, with $20.2 million at the former’s Crypto.com Arena on March 13-15, and $13.4 million at the latter’s United Center on March 28-30. All of his shows earned more than $3 million.

The Most Wanted Tour began on Feb. 21 in Salt Lake City. The first handful of shows secured a No. 10 rank on February’s tally with $19.5 million in the bank. All told, the trek has earned $84.2 million and sold 282,000 tickets so far, with 30 dates left to report through two hometown shows on June 7-8 at San Juan’s Coliseo de Puerto Rico. At his current pace of more than $4 million per show, the tour is likely to sail across the $200 million threshold.

Zach Bryan follows closely behind at No. 2, with $62.3 million and 313,000 tickets, falling just 4% short of Bad Bunny’s winning gross.

Bryan is in the middle of The Quittin Time Tour, which launched on March 5 and managed 18 shows before the end of March. Its’ so-far total of $62 million is already far beyond the $43.9 million he earned on 2023’s 32-date Burn Burn Burn Tour. In fact, it only took 13 shows to pass that mark, representing a 150% increase in per-show earnings since just last year.

More specifically, last year Bryan played two shows in New York at Queens’ Forest Hills Stadium. For the Quittin Time Tour, he expanded to six, split between Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, Belmont Park’s UBS Arena and Newark, N.J.’s Prudential Center. He didn’t visit Chicago in 2022 or 2023 but kicked off this year’s run with three sold-out shows at the United Center, generating $12.6 million in ticket sales for No. 5 on Top Boxscores.

Bryan has nearly 50 more shows on the books in 2024, one-third of which bring him to football stadiums. Already 50% beyond his 2023 grosses, he’s likely to join Bad Bunny in the $200 million club by year’s end.

Women dominate much of March’s top 10, with P!nk and Madonna at Nos. 3 and 4. The former banked $55.1 million and sold 543,000 tickets from 11 shows, scoring the month’s highest attendance count. The latter added $37.9 million to The Celebration Tour, which crossed $200 million in early April. The queen of pop’s tour wrapped last week (April 26 – except for one free show on May 4 in Brazil) with final numbers expected to be reported soon.

Karol G and Nicki Minaj represent Latin and hip-hop at Nos. 5 and 6, respectively. For Karol G, it’s a continuation of a winning streak that began with the kick-off of the Manana Sera Bonito tour last August. For Minaj, it’s her first monthly Boxscore appearance, with the first batch of shows on the Pink Friday 2 World Tour bringing in $26.9 million.

Three festivals appear on Top Boxscores, topped off by Pa’l Norte in Monterrey, Mexico at No. 1. The weekend-long festival grossed $26.2 million on March 29-31, nearly tripling its 2022 revenue of $9.3 million. At No. 6 is Esterio Picnic with $11.8 million. Both events are promoted by OCESA, helping the Mexican juggernaut rank at No. 3 on Top Promoters.

Across the Pacific Ocean, Pitch Music & Arts Festival represents for Melbourne, Australia, at No. 16 with $8.4 million and 35,900 tickets sold between March 8-12. Otherwise, Oceania is bolstered by several appearances by P!nk, including top 10s for shows in Melbourne and Perth.

Asia sneaks onto the Boxscores ranking, with Ed Sheeran and SEVENTEEN rounding out the chart at Nos. 29 and 30. Both hover around $6 million, with Sheeran in Manilla, Philippines and SEVENTEEN in Incheon, South Korea.

Unknown singer stands in for Olly Murs at last-minute as Take That support in Glasgow

Daniel Rooney stood in at 30 minutes’ notice on Friday night when Murs’ flight from London was cancelled

A Scottish singer has said he is “still on a high” after being plucked from obscurity to replace Olly Murs as the opening act for Take That at the last minute.

Murs was due to open for Take That at the OVO Hydro in Glasgow on Friday but had to pull out after getting stuck in London when his flight was cancelled.

The Scottish presenter Ross King was watching Daniel Rooney play at the Radisson hotel opposite the arena when news broke that Take That were without a support act.

Impressed with his vocals, King recommended Rooney to his friend and Take That frontman Gary Barlow to fill the slot, the Daily Record reported, with only 30 minutes to get to the venue.

Rooney later shared a series of images and videos of him performing on stage before 14,000 fans on Instagram , describing it as a “crazy night”.

“Hardly slept, still on a high from last night,” he added.

“Thanks for everyone’s lovely messages about the gig and all the support so far.”

He also thanked King for spotting him at the hotel and getting him to the venue, adding: “Craziest 30 minutes ever.”

Rooney added: “Also a big thanks to the takethat lads for calming me down before the show and talking setlist tunes. Absolute legends.”

Barlow praised Rooney for stepping up to the plate, writing “this young man saved the day thank you” on Instagram with a photo of the musician.

Fellow band member Mark Owen also gave a “huge thanks” to Rooney for helping them out at the show, which is part of their This Life tour.

Murs apologised for cancelling his performance at short notice on Friday after experiencing flight issues all day.

He said he had been at London Heathrow from 11am but after “several delays” and an incident with a cabin crew member the British Airways flight was cancelled.

“So sorry to everyone at the takethat show tonight in Glasgow , unfortunately I won’t be there,” Murs, 39, said on X.

“Don’t think I’ve ever missed a gig before, am so annoyed!

“But am now in a car heading up for our six-hour journey for the Saturday and Sunday shows right now.”

Murs had been updating fans throughout the day on Instagram story, sharing a video from inside the plane which was “stuck on the runway” before exiting and attempting to board another flight.

“I’m trying my best to get to Glasgow,” he said.

Murs later said: “Honestly, you couldn’t write this day.

“One of the cabin crew has fallen over and hurt herself … I hope she’s OK, but basically it has further delayed our flight. So we’re waiting for someone to come in to replace her.”

Murs described the wait as “so frustrating”, before announcing the flight and his show had been cancelled.

“I’m extremely gutted, I don’t think I’ve ever missed a gig that I can recall, especially of this magnitude.”

He later shared a video of himself being driven to Glasgow for his Saturday and Sunday performances.

A British Airways spokesperson said: “We’ve apologised to our customers for the disruption to their travel plans, which was caused by a technical issue with the aircraft.”

Bad Bunny pays homage to his roots and longtime fans on ‘Most Wanted Tour’

Bad Bunny performs during the ‘Most Wanted’ tour at American Airlines Center on Thursday, May 2, 2024, in Dallas.

Bad Bunny’s first stop in Dallas for his “Most Wanted Tour” delivered an immersive, cinematic experience that paid homage to his roots and took fans through some of his career’s highlights.

“Where are the ones who have listened to me since day one?” Bad Bunny said in Spanish during the show.

It began with an orchestra. The anticipation began to build among fans Thursday night at a packed American Airlines Center.

The Philharmonic Orchestra Project opens Bad Bunny’s ‘Most Wanted’ tour at American Airlines Center on Thursday, May 2, 2024, in Dallas.

Soon, the notes of “ NADIE SABE ” rang out and Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, known as Bad Bunny, emerged from the fog on an opposite stage.

After the opening track, in which the artist vulnerably lays out the inner workings of his mind, the track “ MONACO ” boomed from the speakers and put fans into a frenzy.

Inspired by his latest album, Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana (“no one knows what will happen tomorrow”) — which features a drawing of a horse bucking a man in a mask and a denim-on-denim outfit on the cover — hundreds of people donned cowboy hats, boots and denim skirts or jackets. Outside the arena, vendors sold tall stacks of 10-gallon hats, some pink, black, fuzzy or bedazzled, for those who didn’t get the memo.

Track after track, Bad Bunny delivered a fiery performance. But the seasoned Puerto Rican artist also took drawn-out moments to soak in the roaring crowd, solemnly and slowly looking around the arena.

After playing a number of songs from his latest trap-centered album and a quick interlude, Bad Bunny came out on a horse, dressed as the character on his album cover.

Onstage, after performing “ TELEFONO NUEVO ,” he pointed his pinky fingers up and placed them on his cheeks — an all-too-familiar pose for his longtime fans.

It signaled a transition into his roots, to the trap songs that launched him into stardom. “ Tu No Metes Cabra .” “Pa Ti.” “No Te Hagas.” “ Vuelve .”

Fans frantically shouted out the words to his earliest songs. The deep, reverberating bass boomed.

Cielo Vega, 21, planned her outfit around a knitted, brown beanie with floppy bunny ears. Thursday’s concert marked her second time seeing Bad Bunny live, but her first hearing him play trap.

“I started off listening to trap and I will continue to love his trap,” Vega said. “Whether he makes party music, whether he makes just trap, I am a Bad Bunny fan ride or die.”

Originally set for Friday, the show was rescheduled to accommodate the Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Clippers playoff game. The singer was seen courtside at the Mavericks game on Sunday.

“What day is it today?” Bad Bunny asked in Spanish. “The concert wasn’t supposed to be today but you’re all here. Thank you for being here, from the bottom of my heart.”

As the end of the show drew closer, a masked pianist joined him. The two evocatively performed stripped down versions of “ un x100to ” and “ Amorfoda .”

Although the tour’s website warned that Bad Bunny would only play trap, the last stretch of the concert featured party-favorite reggaeton tracks. The arena buzzed with excitement up to the last song.

Zulyed Rodriguez, 18, bonded with a recent friend at the concert. The two bought last-minute tickets and were able to connect over their love for Bad Bunny’s music.

Originally from Venezuela, she said the concert “felt like being at home.”

“Seeing so many people of so many nationalities together was incredible,” Rodriguez said in Spanish. “The energy was incredible … it was like a compilation of his best songs.”

Bad Bunny will perform again at the American Airlines Center on Saturday, marking his last date in Texas. He predicted the Mavericks will win Friday’s game.
