BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

A. Front

Max Headroom is a fictional British artificial intelligence (AI), known for his wit and stuttering, distorted, electronically sampled voice. It was introduced in early 1984. The character was created by George Stone, Annabel Jankel, and Rocky Morton in the mid-1980s, and portrayed by Matt Frewer as “The World’s first computer-generated TV host” although the computer-generated appearance was achieved with prosthetic make up, as the computer technology of the time was not sufficiently advanced to achieve the desired effect. Preparing the look for filming involved a four-and-a-half hour session in make-up, which Matt Frewer described as “a very painful, torturous and disgusting enterprise”.

In 1986 Max was also featured on a single titled “Merry Christmas Santa Claus (You’re a Lovely Guy)” released by Chrysalis Records. The music video featured Max inside a TV screen playing piano surrounded by a choir.
