Tap come back

Eighties spoof heavy metal band, Spinal Tap, have announced that they are to record their first new material in 16 years.

The mockumentary, This is Spinal Tap, originally starring the band, made them an instant cult classic back in 1984 but they remain popular with their last performance being at Live Earth at Wembley Stadium in 2007. The new material is due to be available for download as well as on conventional media before the end of the year.
