I thought the drummer was dead. Choked on someone else's vomit. But then, you can't dust for vomit.

Does anyone know who they were or what they were doing?

Will it be recorded in Dubly?

Can't wait for the tour.  You'll all be knocked out by their exuberance, their raw power, and their punctuality.

Years -- I mean YEARS -- ago I read one of the Tappers explaining that the reason they keep coming back is to stop the rights to what they do reverting to some giant media nightmare company. Basically that was the easiest way to get the film funded so, that is what they did.

Interesting to see someone I've labeled as "humorless twat" posting in this thread.  I had been excited about the prospect of a Spinal Tap reunion, but now, in retrospect, I'm less than enthusiastic.

I happen to see them do their acoustic tour a few years back. It was not that great. In retrospect, I saw them way earlier on the Break Like the Wind tour, and they were fantastic.

/I'll still go

They've got armadillos in their pants. It's really quite frightening.

Makes sense.

Trap's sthick is being done by Steel Panther nowadays.

Fake rock is a young man's game.

freetomato: Let's just sum up why this movie is loved.


Yeah, because of its screwed up aspect ratio.

Thank you, Capt Buzzkill. We have all missed it, all along. Thank you for setting us straight.

When I was a kid, I thought that Spinal Tap was a real band for years because they had a cameo in an episode of The Simpsons.  It wasn't until I was in high school that I found out they were a made-up band for a fake documentary.

Aw, do you feel the need to be welcomed to Fark?

Post a video that's not unwatchable... get a better response.

If they reunite, I doubt they'll play Boston since it's not a college town.
 
2013-07-22 03:21:57 AM  
Bad News were there first, and betterer.
Not knocking the Tap completely, they were a great band and I love the documentary but when it comes to gritty realism Bad News' two documentaries were the benchmark.

Harry Shearer Band was in New Orleans during Jazz Fest and played the 'Down On The Bayou IV" night show gig with some of the Widespread Panic members, Marcia Ball, and Dr. John. They did a couple Spinal Tap tunes with Papa Mali and the New Orleans Suspects, it was very well received by the crowd in attendance. All the guys on stage knew the word's to 'Big Bottom' by heart. That is quite a testament to so-called parody band, whose film was released 30 years ago.

Parker Posey is way hotter in For Your Consideration, than she is in Best in Show.

Never saw the radio movie. Is it any good? More importantly, is Ms. Posey portrayed attractively?
