The Cyrkle

Garage pop outfit the Cyrkle made out pretty well for what was originally the Rhondells, a frat rock band formed as a lark in 1961 by Pennsylvania college students Tom Dawes and Don Danneman. After supposedly being given its new name by John Lennon and Brian Epstein the Cyrkle signed with Columbia and recorded the Paul Simon-penned “Red Rubber Ball,” which bounced all the way to number two in 1966 and earned the group a slot on the Beatles’ last tour. The sitar-tinged, pop-psych follow-up “Turn Down Day” was also a smash, rising to number 16 the same year. Working anonymously, the Cyrkle recorded the psychedelic soundtrack to the soft-porn movie The Minx in 1967; released three years later, the album became a highly sought-after prize of collectors and breakbeat DJs.
