Spinal Tap finally record "Saucy Jack"

Brendan sez, "I saw the 'Unwigged and Unplugged' show starring Spinal Tap members Michael McKean, Harry Shearer, and Christopher Guest on Saturday in Chicago. Aside from all the expected stuff they played from Spinal Tap, A Mighty Wind, and other movies, they also sang 'Saucy Jack,' which you will remember David and Derek discuss at the end of the film _This is Spinal Tap_ [ed: It's the title track from their unproduced rock-opera about Jack the Ripper]. Then, they announced that you could download the track for free from the Spinal Tap website. I thought other Boingers out there would enjoy it."

You're a naughty one Saucy Jack! You're a dirty one Saucy Jack!

Saucy Jack' (Thanks, Brendan!)


  1. Did any group ever take the whole “life imitates art” thing to the extreme that Spinal Tap does? I love these guys ;-)

  2. I caught them in Philly and really didn’t understand why Derek, Nigel and David kept referring to a bunch of other musicians and movies that I had never heard of. Also, they were touring without a drummer. I hope nothing tragic has happened.

    “Sex Farm” was too much for my wife. Oh the lust that Tap inspires!

  3. i thought the 2nd line was ‘you’re a haughty one..’

    the best joke in that entire film is the line ”twas my lucky bun-day’ in big bottom. killer

    I agree, the second line is “You’re a haughty one.”

    I thought the best joke in the film was when “Sir Dennis Eaton-Hogg” says, “So say we all, tap into America.”

  5. “This pretentious ponderous collection of religious rock psalms is enough to prompt the question, ‘What day did the Lord create Spinal Tap, and couldn’t he have rested on that day too?'”

  6. @8 I was *just* coming here to comment on the similarity to the Grinch song. I’d mod you up if I had mod points…and if this were Slashdot.
