Brian Pern - THE COMPLETE SERIES 1-3 DVD review
Simon Day and Rhys Thomas’ fond, funny, star-studded satire.
Bill Bailey once told Prog magazine that the reason so many comedians are prog fans was down to the fact that their non-linear way of thinking connected with the music itself.
Which is just as well, because while we all know that it’s very bloody easy to laugh at progressive rock, it’s a lot trickier to laugh with progressive rock, and to still have a seemingly large proportion of the fanbase find it amusing. In
the hands of someone else, Brian Pern could so easily have come across like a lesson in bullying the class nerd – something which would probably strike a very wrong chord with us here at the magazine and also with our readers.
