Strange Brew is the soundtrack album to the 1983 cult comedy film, Strange Brew. It was released in August 1983 by PolyGram and Anthem Records of Canada (ANR 1-1042). (Full title: The Adventures of Bob and Doug McKenzie Strange Brew Excerpts from the Original Soundtrack). Unlike most soundtrack tie-ins, the album featured continuing comedy sketches by the title duo, Bob and Doug McKenzie. Most of the album was sketches and film dialogue, while the music sampling was usually accompanied by the characters' commentary. The main title theme was performed by Thomas' brother, Ian Thomas. The album was produced by Marc Giacomelli, Rick Shurman and Ian Thomas. The album was only available for a short amount of time and currently remains out of print. This was the last album released by the duo.[1][2][3]
