Four hairy musos with a dream to be the next Motorhead. Sure, they have 'musical differences' - all great bands do. But with Colin's PA, Vim's old transit van and the entire back line stacked on HP, what could possibly go wrong? Chart success, adoring fans and excess all areas, it can only be Good News surely! Then the unexpected happens. 'Bad News' get picked by Channel 4 television for a fly on the wall documentary about a metal band's quest to make the big time. The film, when first broadcast, caused immediate outrage, not just with metal fans who thought it was "far too heavy", but the band got condemned by the music press who declared them: "the worst thing since Showaddywaddy" or as one smartarse critic wrote "this isn't Metal, it's Heavy Lead". The documentary ends with the hand in a sprawling fist fight and falling apart as they head for obscurity. That riveting film of 'Bad News Tour' is what you actually have now in your grubby weed-stained fingers. But it wasn't all tragic. Sharkey McIntyre, scrap dealer turned pop promoter following the old dictum that there's 'no such thing as bad news' immediately invited the band to play at the Monsters of Rock festival at Castle Donington along with some of their heroes, including Motorhead. Suddenly there's a part two of the Bad News story and when EMI decides to sign the band Channel 4 embarks on a second film, 'More Bad News' (even longer than the first!) charting their rise to fame as they record two albums with the legendary Brian May... who actually lets them murder the Queen classic Bohemian Rhapsody - it's all laid out here in front of you. Ladies and Gentlemen...Baaaaaaaaad News!
