The Last Grand

BandRockAlternative

We dont 'sing in the key of heartache' or, 'demand to be listened too' (sayings that tend to follow bands around). We play great indie/rock tunes that have filtered through from several different genres. If you want to know what we're about, have a listen, have a look. We think you'll like it!

Biography

Influences are hard. We have a one metal/rockgod guitarist, a funk bass player, a rock drummer, Winchester Cathedrals finest Voice and keyboard of the last 20 years, a Beatles obsessed rhythm guitarist and a runaway Princess (true) Hendrixesque Lead guitarist. Our influences are totally across the board, ranging from The Beatles to The Chilis, Jimi to Blondie, Van Morrison to Van Halen, the Stone Roses to The Stone Age Temple Pilots, Nina Simone to Isaac Hayes for Southpark and of course, a twillion others.
Our story is that the 'three' core have been together for 4 years, then a break came when Jo (singer) sodded off to Scotland. The two of three wandered, then, picked out a third fourth and fifth member and got noticed enough to star in a film that was released in the UK and Europe called RABBIT FEVER (www.rabbitfeverthemovie.com) where they played the controversial band called 'THUMPER'. Anyway, we got to write and perform the lead title track, picked up a Platinum, shot a music video; and basically made film nirvana for ten minutes or so up and down Europe. Not in Europe but New York, a promoter spotted us and put us up in the Hotel Chelsea (sid vicious et co. notoriety) and fixed us three gigs late Feb 2007. We toured for the week, played a couple of packed venues and smiled all the way home where we now have a industry showcase scheduled for MAY 11th at The Water Rats Theatre in olde London Town.
Our story is that. We're The Last Grand. Something is coming...

Lyrics

When Tomorrow Comes

Written By: The Last Grand

Don't leave me standing here, alone with all your memories,
you're a love long gone and I just cant wait here in the rain
Before we disappear, the thought that you'll come back to me,
is a train in sight and i'm standing where I ought to be,
and now that i'm alone with you, there aint nothing honey we cant do, although we try....no no no no no
i've had as much as i can bear, the light has gone honey now i fear
when tomorrow comes
dont leave me standing here, when tomorrow comes
dont leave me waiting here, when tomorrow comes
So don't leave me waiting here, i'm tired of all this agony,
you're a love long gone and i just can't stand here in the rain.
Now you've disappeared, the chance that you'll come back to me
was a train in a sight and i'm standing where we use to be
now that i'm not alone with you, there ain't nothing honey we cant do, although we try... no no no no no
i've had as much as i can bear, the light has gone honey now I fear, when tomorrow comes...
Don't leave me waiting here,
when tomorrow comes
Don't leave me standing here,
when tomorrow comes...
(instrumental)
Don't leave me standing here...
Don't leave me waiting here...
i'm standing in the rain...
i'm standing in the rain...
(quiet)
Don't leave me standing here...
Don't leave me waiting here...
When tomorrow comes

Retribution

Written By: Michael Ruocco

If I can see your face amongst a million faces,
If I could hear your voice above an angry god,
If I could feel your skin against the skin of angels,
Do you think this love would ever be enough?
So don't tell me how I feel,
this love for you has got to be real,
and I can't stand this drought,
retribution.
If I could hold you, in a hurricane of demons,
If I could breathe your name amongst a silent fall,
If I could walk with you when nothing lasts forever,
Could our love ever stand so tall?
So don't tell me how I feel,
this love for you has got to be real,
and I can't stand this love,
this tired illusion...
is there a way?
could be a way out?
show me the way out...
i'm turning over and over and no no no...
is there a way?
could be a way out?
show me the way out?
I'm turning over and over and no...
and don't tell me how I feel,
this love for you has got to be real,
and I can't stand this love,
I cant stand this love,
this tired illusion.

Hold on

Written By: Michael Ruocco

Tell me when you lost your faith, when you turned away from the sun?
Are you tired, are you something of an angel?
and now the rains have come and a love has gone
it all has turned to dust,
are you tired, are you something of an angel?
Since youve gone and the loss i feel and the broken pieces left,
are you tired, are you something of an angel?
well you risked it all when you walked the line, you're calling out my name,
tell me why are you searching for an angel?
and i dont want to say goodbye
theres another heart just beating here
as we walk on by
and i don't want to live this lie
i know that time is calling you wont you give it one more try...
give it one more try?
who took your soul who stole your love, is it something i have done?
are you tired, are you something of an angel?
and now the memories gone and the rains have and your love has turned to dust
tell me why are you searching for an angel?
and i don't want to say goodbye
theres another heart just beating here
as we walk on by
and i don't want to live this lie
i know that time is calling you, wont you give it one more try...?
give it one more try?
one more try...hold on, hold on
hold on hold on we are coming,
theres a song inside of you, keep believing
that we're holding on for you for love, hold on hold on...
hold on hold on we are coming,
there's a song inside of you, keep believing
that we're holding on for you for love, hold on hold on hold on hold on
hold on hold on we are coming,
theres a song inside of you, keep believing
that we're holding on for you for love, hold on hold on hold on hold on
hold on hold on we are coming,
theres a song inside of you, keep believing
that we're holding on for you for love, hold on hold on hold on hold on
tell me when you lost your faith
when you turned away from the sun
are you tired, are you something of an angel?
