Background Information

The film features a now-famous alumnus of the university - actor, comedian, TV producer and author, Charlie Higson. He is perhaps best known for writing and performing comedy sketches for television’s “The Fast Show”. In the film Higson performs as front man with his post-punk band “The Higsons” [at around 15:00]. The band's single “I Don’t Want To Live With Monkeys” reached no. 5 in the UK Indie Chart following its release in July 1981. ‘The Higsons’ band members were, Charlie “Switch” Higson (vocals); Terry Edwards (guitar / saxophone / trumpet); Stuart McGeachin (guitar); Simon Charterton (drums); Colin Williams (bass); and, David Cummings (guitar). David Cummings does not appear in the performance in this film which was commissioned by UEA for the admissions film, and was recorded in 'The Barn' at the University Village. Charlie Higson’s brother, Andrew Higson, taught in the University's School of Film and Television Studies for 22 years (1986-2008).
