The FeverUnknown - 2006
"It's the summer of 1990. New jack swing has taken hold. Dark, an ambitious music manager who knows his way around the scene, seeks out an unknown singer to become the next R&B star. He finds moldable clay in Brain Barnes, a kid from the projects who briefly tasted fame as a teenaged member of a Jackson Five imitation quartet. After some grooming in and out of the studio, Dark makes a deal with Sony and Brian's first single shoots to the top of the charts. Not wanting to loose momentum, Brain and Dark set off together on a promotional tour across the country. Along the way, the two engage in their own sexual Olympics, indulging ina parade of groupies, horny co-eds, and self-interested starlets. Brian has fallen victim to the Fever, that combination of ego, sex addiction, and fame that has claimed many other soul singers. As Brain's behaviour becomes more and more bizarre, Dark stays busy shielding his star. Trouble mounts when Brian begins to mistrust his management - Dark - after the fever of fame has clouded his mind and body."--Back cover.
