This is Some Kind of Anvil!

As Canadian Metallurgists, Anvil! tour the nation with their latest effort, a 1 1/3 hour long film about their 15 minutes of fame and 25+ years of wistful/wishful thinking, what's a blog to do? Here's a clip from the once and future Metal Kings of Canada.

I saw the Anvil! The Story of Anvil flick on Sunday night. It unapologetically mirrors This is Spinal Tap! without even trying, and has splashes of Metallica's cinematic therapy session, Some Kind of Monster. Unless they are playing at the theater themselves (which they are doing), it's a rental (but decent).

The people of Toyko love Anvil! Why? I have no idea.

Filmmakers can try but nothing will match This Is Spinal Tap. It's one of the funniest movies of all-time.

Best part of the film was their tour manager/aka band member's girlfriend failed attempts at booking them into Euro clubs, and then the drunk Brit who insisted they should be playing to hundreds. Very Tap. I was expecting her to suggest costumes.
