Music By: Steven Burge
Brian Pern is one of the most respected musicians of his generation. He first gained fame as the lead singer of the progressive rock group Thotch before launching a critically acclaimed solo career in which he managed to invent world music and became the first musician to use plasticine in videos. In this series, Brian takes a look back at the history of rock in his own unique style and invites the public into his own recording studios to show how he has managed to stay relevant in an ever-changing music industry.
