See Through Smut


The ‘Confessions’ series of films are both a zenith and a nadir of British smut: hugely successful, bloody awful. For me, 'Confessions of a Pop Performer’ is the best of the bad bunch, simply because the music industry is more interesting than a Driving School, a Holiday Camp, or a window cleaning round.

The featured band is called Kipper, and they’re rubbish, a sort of sub-human cockney Slade. Some of the incidental music, however, is rather good, especially the sparse, spacey vibes and brushes of ‘See Through Jazz’, as seen below with some suitably scary visuals.


Composer Ed Welch worked on all four ‘Confessions’ films, but perhaps should be remembered for his greatest achievement, the theme to ‘Blockbusters’.
