Spinal Tap: The Big Black Book

Author(s): Wallace Fairfax

Music/Film

Spinal Tap: The Big Black Box will bring to the public, for the very first time, the story of the band in words, pictures and removable facsimile memorabilia. The book tells the story of the band, from the early days as The Originals, then The New Originals and The Thamesmen before they settled upon Spinal Tap, and then their swift rise to fame and fortune, before their audience becomes "more selective", and crowd sizes dip. On the verge of splitting, the band hit number one in the Japanese charts, and on the story goes. All of Tap's records are reviewed, from the early skiffle sounds of 'All the Way Home' to the deep, meaningful 'Sex Farm', and including the experimental 'Jazz Odyssey', crowd favourite 'Gimme Some Money' and even the ground-breaking 'Break Like The Wind'. This book lets you look at, touch, feel - and maybe even smell - Spinal Tap as you have never looked at, touched and smelled them before.

In 1971, Spinal Tap invited Wallace to travel with them around the word to document their rise to the top.
