Gimme some (more) money, demand Spinal Tap

Legendary rockers back in the studio

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Legendary rockers Spinal Tap are back in the studio after an extended musical hiatus broken only by their breathtaking performance at 2007's Live Earth spectacular in London.

Speaking to BBC 5 Live, actor and Simpsons voiceover artist Harry Shearer - aka Tap bassist Derek Smalls - said: "We've never recorded the song we did at Live Earth, Warmer Than Hell, and I think they [Spinal Tap] are trying to revisit their old success. Not that they were ever popular, maybe in their own universe. We'll do a song called Gimme Some More Money, probably with some dubious results."

Fans will not need reminding that Spinal Tap's last album was 1992's Break Like The Wind, the much-anticipated follow-up to 1984 classic This Is Spinal Tap. ®
