One of my favorite "Dramedies" is the 1998 film, "Still Crazy". If Spinal Tap wasn't a mockumentary and had more story and heart, it wold be something similar perhaps. Also, Bill Nighy (Pirate Radio, Sean of the Dead, Pirates OTC movies, etc...) is just amazing as the aging lead singer/wanker Ray Simms.
Strange Fruit's music varies from Thin Lizzy meet Bad Company ("All Over The World") to doomy over the top acid rock ("Scream Freedom") but you won't enjoy it nearly as much (or maybe at all) unless you've first seen the film.
