Pompous critics and culture journalists Martin Bain-Jones (Alexander Armstrong) and Craig Children (Ben Miller), present a frightfully clever culture show, a wry look at the fringes of popular music.

They're hip, they're happening - so they say - and in these four episodes they discuss Boy Bands ('Peter Andre would be in a band if he had any mates'), Middle of the Road ('those bland or unchallenging songs'), as well as Brit Pop and Solo Artists. Follow them as they compete to get the best scoop. Who knows, they may even win a Best of the Rest Award. A 'Brest' in other words...
