A superb documentary on Chris Morris written by Lucian Randall. No book so far has examined and discussed the career of british TV's most hated satirist, Chris Morris. Thankfully, this book does his career justice. Written with what appears to be consent but not input from Morris himself, Randall interviews many comedians and producers/directors who have worked with Morris throughout his career, putting together a story of a man who began as a bassist in a band, moving through antagonising the public in local radio (he was eventually fired from Radio Bristol for"talking over the news bulletins and making silly noises") to creating perhaps one of the UK's most polarising programs in Brasseye.
Released in 1998 EXHUMED's now-classic debut full-length 'Gore Metal' was a boundary pushing album of absolutely filthy grinding death-metal. Everything about it was over the top–lightning fast speed, blazing guitars, b-movie slasher-film inspired lyrics, disgusting album artwork, etc etc. This was a record that made Carcass look PG. In otherwords, a true underground classic! Not content to let the album rot away, EXHUMED returned to the studio almost 2 decades later to re-record their landmark debut. The filthy fury of the original version is still there, only tightened up by years of touring and with a greatly improved recording. Presented with completely new art-work that is even more disgusting than the original!
Digitally remastered and expanded reissue of his 1971 album. Coming From Reality is another treat for fans new and old, designed as Rodriguez's vision of a perfect Pop album. Coming From Reality found Rodriguez decamping from Detroit to London's Lansdowne Studios, where the album was recorded with some of the UK's top talent including Chris Spedding and producer Steve Rowland), who recalls Coming From Reality as his all time favorite recording project. The reissue also includes three previously unreleased bonus tracks recorded in Detroit in 1972 with Cold Fact collaborators Mike Theodore and Dennis Coffey, representing the last thing the trio ever did together.
