The Left Banke was a 1960s American pop-music group best remembered for its two hit singles, "Walk Away Renée" and "Pretty Ballerina". The band often utilized what was referred to as "baroque" string arrangements, which led its music to be termed "Bach-rock". The band's use of harmonies saw it compared to contemporaries such as The Beach Boys, The Beatles, The Zombies, and other British Invasion groups. Rolling Stone has placed "Walk Away Renée" at number 220 in the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. The group was formed in 1965 and consisted of keyboardist/songwriter Michael Brown, guitarist George Cameron, bassist Tom Finn, drummer Warren David and singer Steve Martin (aka Steve Martin Caro). Brown's father, Harry Lookofsky, a well-known session violinist, ran a studio in New York and took an interest in the band's music, and acted as producer, manager, and publisher. After some initial sessions, David was ousted, with Cameron switching to drums and Jeff Winfield eventually being brought in on guitar. Meanwhile, Brown's song, "Walk Away Renee", was sold to Smash Records, a subsidiary of Mercury Records, and became a hit in late 1966. "Pretty Ballerina," also written by Brown, charted in early 1967, and the Left Banke released an LP entitled, Walk Away Renee/Pretty Ballerina, by which time, Rick Brand had replaced Winfield on guitar. At this point, tension between Brown and the rest of the group began to surface, as Brown recorded a single, "And Suddenly"/"Ivy Ivy," under the Left Banke name, using session musicians (including future member of Spinal Tap Michael McKean) and Bert Sommer on lead vocals. The remaining Left Banke members used their fan club to boycott the record, which led to confusion among radio stations over which "Left Banke" to support. Radio and Smash Records ultimately pulled their support from the single, which subsequently failed to even crack the Hot 100. ("And Suddenly" was eventually recorded by a group called the Cherry People and was a minor hit.) In late 1967, the group reunited and recorded more material, including the single "Desiree," which just slipped into the Hot 100. However, radio was still reluctant to plug the Left Banke after the controversy surrounding the previous single. Brown left the group for good soon afterwards, replaced for touring purposes by Emmett Lake. Cameron, Finn and Martin continued to record and tour, with Tom Feher replacing Lake on keyboard and writing half the band's new material. The songs cut by the various incarnations of the group in 1967-68 were assembled into a second LP, The Left Banke Too, which appeared in November of 1968. The band tottered on as a live entity into 1969 (apparently now without Martin), but soon fell apart due to lack of success and money frustrations. Later that year, Brown and Martin reunited in the studio to cut yet another flop single as The Left Banke, Myrah b/w Pedestal, which would be their final single on Smash.
One of the best and funniest songs I've ever heard. This is the real version but it still sounds the same as in the movie "This is Spinal Tap". If you saw that movie, you might have realized that this song was played live and they didn't play the song wholly so this is the full and real version of one of the greatests songs I've ever heard. Here are the lyrics: In ancient times, Hundreds of years before the dawn of history. There lived a strange race of people...the Druids. No one knows who they were, or...what they were doing... But their legacy remains... Hewn into the living rock of Stonehenge... Stonehenge! Where the demons dwell Where the banshees live and they do live well Stonehenge! Where a man is a man and the children dance To the pipes of Pan... Stonehenge! Tis' a magic place, Where the moon doth rise, with a dragon's face Stonehenge! Where the virgins lie And the prayer of devils fill the midnight sky... And you my love, won't you take my hand We'll go back in time, To that mystic land Where the dew drops cry, and the cats meow I will take you there I will show you how.... And Oh how they danced... The little children of Stonehenge Beneath the haunted moon... For fear that daybreak, might come too soon... And where are they now? The little people of Stonehenge... And what would they say to us, If we were here.........Tonight.......

Just what is the "11" for TurnItUp Media? Well, the secret is out. We have a great love for a classic "Rockumentary" In 1982 legendary British heavy metal band Spinal Tap attempt an American comeback tour accompanied by a fan who is also a film-maker. The resulting documentary, interspersed with powerful performances of Tap's pivotal music and profound lyrics, candidly follows a rock group heading towards crisis, culminating in the infamous affair of the eighteen-inch-high Stonehenge stage prop. This Is Spinal Tap!

It is by turns side-splittingly funny, tragic, upsetting, stupid, side-splittingly funny, touching, poignant, beautiful, life-affirming, side-splittingly funny and above all, brilliant. - NME At 14, Toronto school friends Steve "Lips" Kudlow and Robb Reiner made a pact to rock together forever. Their band, Anvil, went on to become the "demigods of Canadian metal," releasing one of the heaviest albums in metal history, 1982's Metal on Metal. The album influenced a musical generation, including Metallica, Slayer, and Anthrax, that went on to sell millions of records. But Anvil's career took a different path - straight to obscurity. Picking up on their story 26 years later, director Sacha Gervasi has concocted an achingly touching and often hilarious account of Anvil's last-ditch quest for elusive fame and fortune. Not since Metallica: Some Kind of Monster has such an incredibly raw, candid, hearbreaking and truly inspirational story been captured on film. At its core, Anvil! The True Story of Anvil is a timeless tale of survival and the unadulterated passion it takes to follow your dream, year after year. Anvil rocks - it has no other choice. In the words of Rolling Stone: Some of the scenes in Anvil are so outrageous, it feels like this must be a Spinal Tap sequel. It isn't. These guys are for real.'
