Spinal Tap on record labels, part 1

From: Spinal Tap: The Guitar World Interview (April 1992):

     GUITAR WORLD:  Where's Ian Faith, your manager?
     ALL:  Dead.
     NIGEL TUFNEL:  Yes, Ian died.
     GW:  How did he die?
     DAVID ST. HUBBINS:  Who cares?
     TUFNEL:  You get news like that and you go, "I'm not even going to ask how."
     ST. HUBBINS:  He was always prone to apoplexy, because he had very thin English skin and very thick alcoholic blood.
     TUFNEL: He was prone to apoplexy and  . . . what do they call it?  Embezzlement.
     DEREK SMALLS:  He took everything personally -- including our royalties.
           . . .
     SMALLS: We have a custom label, a subsidiary of MCA, named in tribute to him --
     ST. HUBBINS:  -- but mainly because it's a great name.
     SMALLS: It's called Dead Faith Records.
     ST. HUBBINS: Dead Faith Records, Tapes & CDs --
     SMALLS: And Any Other Form Of Recorded Entertainment There May Be In The Known Universe.  That's the legal name.
