The episode, Bad News Tour, took the form of a spoof rockumentary, in which the incompetent band is followed on tour by an almost equally incompetent documentary crew. Coincidentally, it was in production at the same time as the similar film 'This Is Spinal Tap', which was released the following year. The band made numerous promotional TV appearances including Channel 4's now iconic 80's music show 'The Tube' and the BBC's primetime talkshow 'Wogan'. They initially released a self-titled album, consisting of thrashy rock songs interspersed with arguments amongst the band. Brian May of Queen produced the album, which included a cover of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody". They also played a tour of theatres, universities and colleges as well as playing Reading Festival in 1987.They also had a suitably bad opening set at the Monsters of Rock festival at Castle Donington. This performance was featured in a second Comic Strip film, More Bad News, broadcast in 1988. 2. An experimental house producer on L.I.E.S.
