This Is Spinal Tap – Turn It Up To 11

This was a DJ set at Deptford Cinema, a small volunteer-run picturehouse that runs various film-based events.  This was a showing of ‘This Is Spinal Tap’, complete with an air guitar based ‘Battle of the Bands’ and a classic rock and metal soundtrack in the bar (that was my bit).

Tonight’s soundtrack therefore included some tracks from the film, a couple of tributes to ‘Fast’ Eddie Clarke who died earlier in the week, and multiple requests for Iron Maiden (obviously in the mood for British metal bands going globetrotting!).
