How a lot time are we going to have [left] to have some enjoyable?’”.
Nearing its 40 yr anniversary, the unique comedy traditional mockumentary adopted the fictional band Spinal Faucet, often known as considered one of England’s loudest bands, whose influential tour is captured by the (additionally fictitious) movie director Marty DiBergi.
