New Spinal Tap film on iTunes

This Is Spinal Tap is one of the greatest comedy films of all time. Nowhere does the sheer pomposity and brainlessness of seventies prog rock get skewered in such sublime style.

Which is why it’s hard to get behind the ‘band’ actually doing real gigs, breaking the fourth wall and killing most of the jokes on the way. Ageing comedians jumping the shark isn’t as funny as has-been musicians making fools of themselves. It’s just sad.

Having said that, the ‘band’ have released a film of their first visit to Stonehenge, which is at least them getting back to what they’re supposed to be about – comedy. Stonehenge: ‘Tis A Magic Place is being sold on iTunes, and marks the 25th anniversary of the original film. You can see a promo below, and for more info there is also a link *down there*. Check it out.
