Spinal Tap: The Big Black Book Now Available

Spinal Tap: The Big Black BookWallace Fairfax has published a new book called Spinal Tap: The Big Black Book. In the words of Nigel Tufnel, “It’s like, how much more black could this be? And the answer is none. None … more black.”

The 128-page book documents the band and the rockumentary, This Is Spinal Tap, that launched them into fame. “Now, for the very first time between non-satin sheets, Spinal Tap: The Big Black Book offers fans the unique opportunity to dive deep into a cherished moment in time when all that mattered was a filthy power chord progression, ceaseless lyrical innuendo, and grubby long hair shampooed by the gods of metal and conditioned by the angels of mercy,” a press release states.

Fairfax covers Spinal Tap’s history while including collectibles like removable promo posters, the Stonehenge Napkin, ticket stubs, and a Smell The Glove album cover. Other features include “a scratch-n-sniff card that captures the sights, sounds, and smells of a hardworking rock band on the road, iconic photographs of the band and rockumentary filmmaker Marty DiBergi, tracklists from every epic record,” and profiles of band members, including Derek Smalls.

Spinal Tap: The Big Black Book is available now in a hardcover for $32.51.
