Spinal Tap A to Zed

Mullahs of Invention: A band assembled in the Middle East by Ian Faith after his split with Tap but before he faked his death. Composed of Turkish boys living in Breman who looked Iranian. Faith supplied the young hopefuls with guitars, amps and access to the entire Tap catalog. It didn’t work out. "The money that was coming in was going out again in cash, usually in the equipment of Israeli rock bands, to Tel Aviv," Faith would later tell Spy. "And some days later there was a new F-14 on a runway in Teheran. The whole company [Moderate Records] was a conduit for getting arms into Iran." Faith later split the Tap catalog among various celebrities and fans. See Andretti, Mario; Navratilova, Martina; Rafsanjani, Ali Akbar.
