Metal Band Abhorrent Decimation & Comedian Bernie Clifton Meet Up After Comical CD Blunder!





Strange & Hilarious Post Alert!

Veteran British comedian and entertainer Bernie Clifton was recently left "fuming" when his new album To Dream the Impossible Dream went to press with the track listing for Abhorrent Decimation's Miasmic Mutation.

Inspired by the public reaction to his recent performance on BBC’s The Voice, where he sang a moving rendition of ‘The Impossible Dream’, the impossible to extinguish Bernie Clifton has released a collection of his favourite songs. But it was only when the singer was packing orders that he noticed the printing bungle. “What a cock-up. It has been a nightmare to sort out and has cost me a fortune to reprint the 1,000 CDs. My act has never been described as an Abhorrent Decimation and I’m too scared to even listen to their songs."

However, despite his initial reaction Bernie has taken it light heartedly telling a BBC reporter, “We could go on the road, me and the lads. We could do To Dream the Impossible Miasmic Mutation.” Abhorrent Decimation vocalist Ashley Scott was then heard saying, “I definitely want to talk to Bernie about working together on something... it would be amazing.”

Bernie has since invited the band to his home in Sheffield for tea and bacon butties, to have a laugh about the whole thing and both parties were happy to pose for some pictures. Copies of the misprinted CD have also been signed and will be auctioned off in due course to raise money for a charity.

"What a wonderful blunder," Ashley said. "We can't control many things in this weird and wonderful life; fancy a Death Metal band getting such exposure from a national treasure in an ostrich suit." Bernie commented, ''Suddenly I feel my life is changing. If only my Auntie Nora was still around to see it."




Death Metal Band Abhorrent Decimation



I caught up with Abhorrent Decimation front-man, Ashley Scott to find out a bit more about their view on the mishap!...


What was your initial reaction?


I first found out on the Monday morning, one the guys that works in my warehouse came up to my office and slapped a copy of the paper on my desk. “I never thought I would see you on page 3!!!” hahaha!


Are you a fan of Bernie?

I had only really seen Bernie on The Voice, so I knew a little about him from the back story they show on the show, I knew a little about him but not a great deal. We have a lovely day at his home earlier this week. A really nice guy. 

Is there anything you would like to say to Bernie about this incident?

We covered it all face to face but basically we just shared stories and had a good laugh at it all. Very inspiring chap, the fella is 80. Sharp as a pin and has a gag for everything. I guess if I had to say anything now, it would be “thanks for the bacon butties”. 

Are you enjoying the extra if not bizarre exposure?

‘Enjoying’ is a strange word in this case. Let’s just say I am working with it. For a death metal band, it feels like we have limited opportunities for such exposure, it can be a little disheartening actually. Knowing that you work your arse off on a record and a release campaigns but a geezer in an ostrich suit can surpass all that in one move hahaha! 

For anyone wondering about your songs and titles, how would you describe your sound?

Our album actually shares a positive message, the record is about life and it’s journey and how we can’t control its mysteries. Quite fitting for this situation really. We’re a Death Metal band.

Voi and Luger told us: “This is now just a continuation of what we have been doing all our lives and only now in our 'older age' we have done something serious. Of course when it comes to music, at least for us, we wanted to record an album with some of the best musicians in metal music and the ones that we listened to when we were kids. We are not saying that this is something special what we are doing, but this means a lot to us and basically we are doing this for ourselves and our closest friends first but also for all the metal fans around the world who we hope are going to like our new music.
