Heavy rock group THE COUNTY MEDICAL EXAMINERS are using the latest scratch-and-sniff technology to give their new album the whiff of rotting meat.
The US trio's album, OLIDOUS OPERETTAS, will come with the aroma of decaying flesh.
Frontman MORTON FAIRBANKS explains, "It will be a scented-face CD, which essentially means it will be scratch-'n'-sniff-able... Our CD will smell like rotten meat."
The singer admits his smelly idea was deemed more than a little unsavoury by many of the record labels he approached with a view to releasing the album.
He adds, "Most of the companies refused to work with me, but Sony has this technology that allows you to infuse scents into a CD, and they finally agreed to do one that smells like rotten meat... The album's gonna stink."
Many ticket-holders couldn't get into the O2 Arena show on Tuesday night (September 19th) because they didn't bring photo ID to match their booking.
An album re-release, a new song and a documentary mark the singer's legacy this year.
The actor plays the titular hero in the forthcoming adaptation.
