Anyone remember 'The House Of Rock'? - video

The late 1990's and early 2000's were very different to now. In 2011 the only real music show on television is Jools Holland's Later, and Channel 4's occasional Live From Abbey Road specials. Apart from those, nothing. But years ago I used to stay up late on a Wednesday night where amongst other great music programming, Jo Whiley hosted a music-based discussion show (it got slagged off, but I thought it was a great show). Channel 4's excellent '4Music' slot on Wednesday nights also featured an adult cartoon that used to have me in hysterics... And nowadays I'm on the look out for a way to get hold of series one of this particular show.... 'The House Of Rock' was a cartoon set in the afterlife, with Freddie Mercury, Biggie Smalls, Kurt Cobain, John Denver and Marc Bolan (or John Lennon in series 2) all living in the same house. Fantastic stuff. Series one was the better one (featuring the awesome episode where the gang have to go along with the fantasies of a ketamine-fulled Biggie), so it's a shame that only series 2 is available on DVD. Or anywhere else for that matter. If anyone out there reading this has episodes of series one PLEASE contact me!

In the meantime, here's Series Two of 'The House Of Rock'...
