Hilarious spoof heavy metal band geriatric survivor Derek Smalls [5 string bass] releases his new solo album - "Smalls Change: Meditations Upon Ageing".
Here's a taster -
"This one's a virgin, this one's a tramp, this one's a quickie behind the bass amp, this one's got 3 kinds of mold but hey it don't get old......"
Next week Spinal Tap bassist Derek Smalls (comedian Harry Shearer) will release his debut solo album via Twanky Records/BMG. The guest-filled album is available to stream in advance of its Friday, April 13 release via NPR Music’s First Listen series.
