Massive – Brand new comedy series on BBC Three from Sunday 14 September featuring the formiddable a.P.A.t.T.
a.P.A.t.T. play a hapless band who sure can play but are just too odd for mass consumption...Ring any bells!?...
Ralf Little's character describes the band as "Shit".
Massive is a new comedy series on BBC Three starring Ralf Little (Two Pints Of Lager, The Royle Family), Carl Rice (Scallywagga) and Johnny Vegas (Ideal, Benidorm).
Danny (Ralf Little) and Seamus (Carl Rice) bonded over Oasis in '94 and have been best mates ever since. Both Manchester born-and-bred, both mid-twenties and both temping in dead-end jobs, they're united by one all-consuming passion: music. Inspired by the city's local heroes – Tony Wilson, Joy Division, The Happy Mondays – the lads wile away the dreary office hours dreaming of their own record label.
Shay wants Marple six-piece, The Lamps (played by a.P.A.t.T.), to be Shady Music's first signing. Danny has other ideas; the band perform in masks and write songs about Jeremy Paxman – they're never going to sell any records. When Danny refuses to audition the band, Shay threatens to quit the label. He won't work with someone who cares more about money than art. Danny relents and The Lamps enter into a fierce Battle of the Bands with HearKittyKitty.
a.P.A.t.t. have almost completed work on their new album, to be released on Chinchilla-Tone CD/LP in due course. Their most recent album, 'A Black & White Mass' is available on Pickled Egg Records now.
