Spinal Tap head to the studio

By | Published on Wednesday 4 February 2009

Spinal Tap are about to go into the studio to record new material. No, really. The spoof band from the 1984 mockumentary ‘This Is Spinal Tap’ plan to record some songs, including the one they performed at the 2007 Live Earth show at Wembley.

Commenting on the recordings, band member Derek Smalls (aka actor Harry Shearer) told BBC Radio 5live: “It’ll be for download as well as on conventional media later this year. We’ve never recorded the song we did at Live Earth, ‘Warmer Than Hell'”.

Adopting the third person, he added: “I think they [Spinal Tap] are trying to revisit their old success. Not that they were ever popular, maybe in their own universe. We’ll do a song called ‘Gimme Some More Money’, probably with some dubious results”.
