“Stonehenge Decoded”: Spinal Tap’s Nigel Tufnel explains it all

Stonehenge2This is funny stuff. National Geographic Channel found a clever way to promote its new spesh “Stonehenge Decoded,” by summoning rocker Nigel Tufnel of Spinal Tap fame to share his provocative theories on the centuries-old monument.

Of course, Tap nuts know how important Stonehenge is to the band and its iconography. In five short Internet vids, Tufnel reveals the name of the lone man (“Duncan”) that built the mysterious stone structure some 4,500 years ago.

Nige also confirms that he’s been spending a good deal of time in a room at his home conducting “sonic vibratory research” and exploring how marinara sauce turns into dirt very much like the soil found around Stonehenge if subjected to the intense levels of guitar feedback (coming through an amp turned up to 11, of course). In fact, Stonehenge was originally an amplifier, Tufnel informs interviewer Jim Piddock.

“Stonehenge Decoded” appears to blend what looks like corny historical reenactment footage with traditional, years-in-the-making, heavy-duty National Geographic research and archaeological studies. It’s set to bow June 1 at 9 p.m.

Posted here for your convenience are parts 1 2 and 4 of the Tufnel interview, which is sure to spark debate and fisticuffs among Anglo-Saxon scholars. The other three can be found right here.

Rock and roll! Or in this case, rock!
