Classic!

Rock on!

I want an amp that goes to 11!

Why?

"Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where?"

Do you think this one will go to eleven?

...and is that one louder than anything in the top ten?

Awesome

I'm sure I'd feel a lot better about this if I wasn't under such heavy sedation.

Rock on!

The crucial thing about 'Da Tap, is that as well as being achingly funny, it's also damn fine rock music they create.

I saw a clip on You Tube of their "how many bassists?" version of Big Bottom - brilliant stuff!

I was on some website the other day and noticed the volume control on the video player went up to 11. Niiice... :-D

I feel confident

that this will earn a place in the Top 11.

That would be the BBC iPlayer, a very nice touch having 11 on the volume...

Hmmmm

Will it be blues-jazz or jazz-blues influenced? That's if Dave's wife ( "It's your f**kin' wife! She's not my wife! Whatever f**k she is!" ) let's him play of course!

How could I leave this behind?

I see the record companies have changed the name of the '84 album in order to sell it to us again.

The album that defined the none-blacker-than line between clever and stupid was "Smell The Glove". "This Is Spinal Tap" was the film.

knobs that go up to 11...

you can get them...

I have them on my amp and guitar...

I'm waiting for the day they have knobs that go to 12... cos you see, once you're at 11, where else is there to go... with a knob that goes up to 12, you can go one louder...

Some mistake, shurely?

"...extended musical hiatus broken only by their breathtaking performance at 2007's Live Earth spectacular in London."

What about the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert at Wembley Stadium (the old one) in 1992?

Where's the "Stonehenge was in serious danger of being knocked over by a dwarf!" icon when you need it?

Yes, I was trying to find warmer than hell.

Excellent news, and nice to see the Tap fans coming out of the woodwork :-)

I want the guitar they had at the Albert Hall concert - the Marshall guitar that you could make louder by plugging another part onto the bottom of the guitar.

ah - an article here: http://news.harmony-central.com/News/2001/Marshall-Guitar-Auction.html

Just to point out

Although you would likely have only seen it if you were the barkeep, the on-screen volume control on many Atari coin-op games "goes to 11". (5-bit log attenuator + mute, how could I resist :-)
