Spinal Tap

Happened to watch it again last night - I'd forgotten how good it was (and how many quotes I routinely use from it).

11/10.
Frazier Cranium

How can you give it 11 out of 10, it's just not possible???

Still makes me laugh now.

Did for Rock and Roll what "The Sound of Music" did for hills

Love Spinal Tap. For me it's just one of those very rare times when something is perfect and without any flaws whatsoever.  Perfect casting and more quotable lines than you can shake a stick at. The timing where they are on their way to the stage and meet the janitor for the second time is so good I'm laughing just thinking about it. I've got a DVD of it where there's audio commentary from the whole band in character. Bonafide comedy genius.

And remember.......you can't dust for vomit!

I might get one of those Polymer Records tee-shirts off of ebay just so I get one decent Christmas present.

It's excruciating, Bully, and brilliant, all at the same time.

It's near perfect imho, just like Sopranos, just like Psycho, Life Of Brian and a very few other flicks.

Yes, it's the totally cringeworthy stuff that really makes it work for me - which I guess is true for most of us on here who would've been exposed to the "hair" bands of the seventies/early eighties with their precious albums and bonkers moments on stage.

I think I spot something different each time I watch it. This time I took most of the film to work out that the bassist was wearing a Shrewsbury Town (?) kit and I loved his "double" bass.

Heh, heh.

There are even some dodgy covers............

Nigel: "Just listen to that sustain"

Marty: "But I can't hear anything"

Nigel: "But you would if it was plugged in"

The thing that I always admire in the film is how the Americans did such believable English accents.

The Wurzels share the same manager as.... The Stranglers... stir that in to your scrumpy, fact fans.  They did an album of 'punk' covers too I think, including Peaches.


Yes it's shoite.

Taking the comedy type singing out of tghe frame, the actual music isn't half bad.  

I love the ooh arr bits, I was properly laughing out loud.
Grind

Quality.

Now listening to Ruby by them.

Ruby Ruby Ruby Ruby, ooh arr, ooh arr, ooh arr

Rock DJ is even better, absolutely knocks Robbie Williams version into a cocked hat (not that it was difficult to begin with).

I'll do a thread.

I'd have to check when it came out (mid 70s?) but I remember the boy Grind thinking (and stridently voicing this opinion) that no-one in their right mind could justify buying a brand new combine harvester for just twenty acres of land.

You'd rent one or share it as part of a co-operative.

I guess it could almost be worthwhile with an additional 43 acres, but even then.......

It totally spoiled the song for me.
Grind

They're probably just townies, the pretend yokel fucks.

At least Spinal Tap are real.
