Spinal Tap A to Zed

Jim: The name of the giant skull that Tap used in its stage show during the 1992 tour. It was constructed from sculpted fiberglass by Lexington Scenery of Los Angeles. The skull had a smoke machine inside along with two reflector lamps to make its eye sockets light up. And when the band played "Big Bottom" to end its concerts, Jim spun around to reveal a woman’s derriere, complete with garter belt and tattoos. A fogger also blew smoke out of Jim’s ass. During "Christmas with the Devil," Jim was fitted with a Santa Claus beard and Christmas hat. The set also included a spinal column and coccyx around the drum riser. (TCI)
