In honor of their 25th anniversary and their new album “Back From the Dead,” just released last month, Spinal Tap is asking the fans to get involved.
David St. Hubbins, Derek Smalls and Nigel Tufnel of Spinal Tap are inviting fans to create an original video to be posted on YouTube for one of the following songs off of their album BACK FROM THE DEAD — Hell Hole, Warmer Than Hell, Big Bottom, Stonehenge, Back From The Dead and/or Short & Sweet. Judging the contest, will be Colman Hickey, who created the classic video for Tonight I’m Gonna Rock You Tonight using characters made of Legos.
One lucky winner will receive an autographed, limited edition Spinal Tap prize pack!
Also they’ve produced an official Spinal Tap iPhone app. Listen to music, watch videos, get the latest Tap news, and see what other fans are writing on their wall. Free app, but it looks like you’ll need to be connected to get anything from it so put it on the phone or keep your iPod Touch near a wifi connection.
If you haven’t picked up the new CD “Back From the Dead,” you should. Amazon has it for just $10.99 and you get 19 original songs, a one-hour DVD, and a “unique pop-up diorama package that unveils three 12-inch action figures (courtesy of Sideshow Collectibles) of the band along with a proportionally sized Stonehenge.” What’s not to love?
