Last week we talked about The Beatles faux-documentary A Hard Day's Night, so what better movie to follow that up with than a mockumentary about a heavy metal band, This Is Spinal Tap. The timing of the move feels rather appropriate as well, given the recent loss of comedian Fred Willard, who appears in one of Spinal Tap's scenes. The movie is brought to us this week by Marc from the Performance Anxiety podcast. Rafe and Marc talk about the cultural impact of Spinal Tap, both in the comedy and musical worlds, and the brilliance of the leads, Christopher Guest, Harry Shearer, and Michael McKean.
