Rave from the grave

New Bill Hicks album out

Bill Hicks has released a new CD - more than nine years after his death.

Shock And Awe was recorded at the Oxford Playhouse in November 1992, as part of a British tour which included the recording his Revelations show at the London Dominion.

On the CD, released by Pinnacle, he rages against the first Gulf War, and the first George Bush - as well as tackling the British political scene.

The disc has not previously been put out on disc, and follows last year's release of the less well-known Flying Saucer Tour Vol 1 and Love, Laughter and Truth
