Bad News made their television debut during 1983, in the first series of The Comic Strip Presents… (written by Edmondson). The episode, “Bad News Tour”, took the form of a satirical fly on the wall rockumentary, tracking the misadventures of a hapless British heavy metal band on tour. After a screening of the film Adrian Edmondson (Vim Fuego – vocals, lead guitar) and Nigel Planer (Den Dennis – rhythm guitar) will be joining us to discuss the phenomenal success and legacy of the film which led to a sequel “More Bad News” (1988), hit singles, three albums and live shows culminating in a legendary appearance at Monster of Rock, Castle Donnington in1986. Adrian and Nigel will be in conversation with infinite Monkey cage co-host and stand up comedian Robin Ince.
