If you enjoyed Spinal Tap but would like to see the real deal of a long life in a rock band trying to make it, have a look at Anvil! The Story of Anvil
Just in case you think it’s a spoof/manufactured band, it features Slash, Lemmy, Lars Ulrich and many more.
There’s even a Stonehenge scene
Not sure what platforms you can get it on- I watched it here
Ah, that doesn’t really surprise me, as the film lived solely off the comedy script, which would lend itself very poorly to translation.
My spam filter is obviously set at a much lower level than yours.
I presume that’s why you only respond to a tiny fraction of my posts. I’m obviously being ‘filtered out’
no I mean that spinal tap… I can’t see the film at all,…
I have no trouble reading and just talking in English,…singing and sometimes a little,…words from Maggie (I already told her ), and you, sometimes Toby…and let me certainly not forget Richard . …with you people words go into the translation machine more than more than once a week … But I will confess right away that when I speak Dutch or type long sentences in Dutch, many Dutch people often do not follow me … …and actually it’s not quite clear to me if I was unclear in the first message, or if you’re just confusing me now
But then I get even more tedious…(long chatter),…and reacting to everything is quite tiring for others, right? and let’s not forget the most important thing … you already mention it yourself, I have a self-learning computer so indeed…
Is this the documentary about the band where the singer has to work as a truck driver or something? I remember watching it about a decade ago. People laugh at them, but having released 18 albums, they surely never give up. Need to rewatch it and give them a listen again. Thanks for the suggestion!
Yeah I saw it several years ago, great watch! Inspiring and depressing all at the same time!
Many consider them pioneers in the early days. I’m a fan of some of their stuff for sure
Thanks for sharing, have to re-watch it!
I wonder how they’re getting on now?
