In 1991, Otway teamed up with punk-poet Attila the Stockbroker to produce their very own Rock Opera. Based around the Bob Lind song which Otway had been performing for many years, the Rock Opera debuted at that year's Edinburgh Festival and proved to be highly popular with audiences.
Recorded at A&R Studios in Edinburgh and produced by Richard Holgarth, Cheryl: A Rock Opera was an everyday tale of Satanism, trainspotting, drug abuse and unrequited love.
