Spinal Tap A to Zed

Megaphone: Label that carried Tap until the mid-1970s, when the band sued to recover withheld royalties. (Megaphone countersued for "lack of talent.") As part of the settlement, Tap agreed to not make any more records for the label and, as the lawyers put it, "stay the fuck out of the studio." (IST) Instead, the band toured under assumed names such as the Cadburys and Anthem. (MH) Megaphone got its revenge by releasing an album of B-sides and outtakes, "Rock ’N Roll Creation" that brought the band scorn. Needless to say, it also earned Megaphone zero return on its investment.
