This is Spinal Tap

"As long as there's, you know, sex and drugs, I can do without the rock and roll."
-- Mick Shrimpton (R.J. Parnell), This is Spinal Tap

So what's the most logical follow-up to Pete Seeger and Final Fantasy here on C&T? Spinal Tap, of course. Well, perhaps not, but I'm about to head out the door to go watch This is Spinal Tap (1984) with friends... so here you go. Download these and put them up to eleven.

Spinal Tap - Big Bottom
Spinal Tap - Tonight I'm Gonna Rock Ya Tonight
Spinal Tap - Hell Hole

This post is lovingly dedicated to the memory of Spinal Tap's many drummers (list courtesy of Wikipedia):

John "Stumpy" Pepys (1964-1969) -- Died in a bizarre gardening accident
Eric "Stumpy Joe" Childs (1969-1974) -- Choked on vomit (possibly not his own)
Peter "James" Bond (1974-1977) -- Spontaneous combustion
Mick Shrimpton (1977-1982) -- Onstage explosion
Joe "Mama" Besser (1982) -- Missing, presumed dead
Richard "Ric" Shrimpton (1992-1999) -- Allegedly sold his dialysis machine for drugs, presumed dead
Plus 14 other drummers at various times of whom all are dead

Hope everyone's having a grand Memorial Day weekend!
