“Which Band did you work for before? Spinal Tap?”

If you’ve not seen the film – shame on you! – but there is a bit where they send a sketch of a Stonehenge Trilithon to be built as part of  the stage props.  When they play live a tiny Trilithon is lowered (the sketch was drawn using the symbol for inches not feet and the final was built as described).  Once the trilithon is in place – much to the bemusement of the band – a small troup of dwarves then dance around it.

I was reminded of this as I listened to Sister’s of Mercy “Dominion” with the lines

‘There’s a light house in the middle of Prussia/
A white house in a red square”

hence the white house in the red square….
