It’s a “Hole” lotta fun this week when we crossover with our RiotCast buds Rob Sprance and Chris Fortney from ‘The Glory Hole’.

Dressed as England's loudest band, The Band Geeks perform a 5 song set of music from our favorite film, This Is Spinal Tap.  This is a VERY important movie for us so we took great care in getting it right, from the bad guitar solos, all the way down to the pelvic thrusts. Such a fine line between stupid and clever.
