Be warned, this is serious stuff. Often misdiagnosed as comedy Blue Jam is a chilling but sometimes funny probe into the darkest corners of the human mind. Chris Morris blends surreal sketches designed to haunt, amuse and terrify with an excellent blend of ambient music from the likes of Aphex Twin and Brian Eno. Highlight sketches are as follows:
'Unflustered Parents' deals with two parents who are entirely undisturbed by the fact that their six year old son has gone missing and is probably lying dead in the woods somewhere. Eerie sound effects of rustling leaves and cawing birds conjure up images of a cold winter's wood whilst the actors convey mild annoyance at the interuption of their lives by this unwelcome event.
'Acupuncture' is my personal fave. A dispassionate and mentally detached woman comments on her acupuncture services whilst a hapless man endures the treatment in the background. She is admirably dedicated to the welfare of others, unfortunatly she uses six inch nails and a hammer.
'Lizards' is about a television repair man who arrives to help a couple whose television is pouring out lizards. His helpful comments range from, "Use windscreen wipers to wipe them off" to "Have you checked with the cable company sir?"
'Suicide Journalist' is a scathing satire of personality driven journalism, art house pretension and the need for a new gimmick. The story is narrated by a man who is so detached from common sense that he must have the life expectency of a [slow] may-fly.
'Fix-it Girl' Remember Harvey Keitel in his role as clean-up man in Pulp Fiction? Imagine if Jules and Vincent opened the door to find that their boss had sent them a four year old girl to do the job. A remorselessly evil girl.
Blue Jam is not for the faint hearted.

This is the highest level humor going. People that do not get it do not deserve to be on the streets. These are people who do not understand understand irony and for that matter do not understand the difference between art and reality. These are the people who write letters to soap opera characters and address them as the real characters. Screw the litteral.
On perhaps the finest track on the CD, "Unflustered Parents," the title states the point. It's not about pedophilia, it is about parents' apathy to what's going on in their kids' lives. This is a global problem, bigger than child molesting. Highly deserving to be satirized. Thank you Chris Morris.
Oh, and it's really funny.

This isn't Fawlty Towers (nothing wrong with FT though). It isn't "BritCom" as one reviewer put it. It is unique, get up and take note comedy/parody/insight into what should be said more often instead of hiding behind the couch and waiting for it to go away. It's not a case of liking it. It is simply a case of understanding that it is not watered down, formula driven stuff designed to appeal to the masses (insert Friends, Raymond, Seinfeld here, and all those other meaningless heaps of drivel that are regurgitated and copied ad nauseum). No it won't be rerun every week for the next thousand years. It was there and it has gone and the writers will move on and create more controversial stuff because they have said what they want to say and repeating it won't make it more funny. Don't knock it because you don't understand it. Morris has trodden similar paths before (okay so maybe some of it is regurgitation in a sense) but it is still quite different to anything else out there. It should make you think if nothing else. If you cannot think, you won't like it.

This is scary stuff, the blackest of black humour. The stuff of nightmares. More horror than comedy, you feel you have to laugh because you don't know what else to do.

Satirical comedy, with a whiff of performance art, Jam is hilarious, sometimes thought-provoking and often dark as hell.

The more disturbing items can be too much for the timid and polarise opinion strongly, but it's not all shock and horror. Many sketches are laid-back and playful and the whole CD is rampantly surreal.

Throughout the disc, the soundtrack plays an integral part, from chilling to chilled-out, underpinning the moods and scenes played out.

If you like your humour intelligent, dark and non-PC, Blue Jam sits in a class of its own and will blow you away.
