It sees Bill and Jimmy rise to the very top of the music industry, becoming the biggest selling act in the UK...
... before crashing out of the industry in spectacular fashion and heading toward the art world with the intention of creating similar mayhem.
Inspired by a madcap theatrical genius and a cult novel, they blaze a trail that takes them to Sweden, the North Pole and the Sierra Nevada, via Northampton, before arriving finally on the Isle of Jura, with two suitcases containing a million quid.
It was their mission to cause chaos. And they did.
A sonic roller coaster featuring Paul Higgins (The Thick of It, Line of Duty) as Bill Drummond, Nicholas Burns (Nathan Barley, The World’s End) as Jimmy Cauty, with Kevin Eldon as Gimpo, Jeremy Stockwell as Ken Campbell and an outstanding cast of multi-voice comedy performers.
