Brilliantly irreverent and quirky, a good example of 60's idiosyncrasy.
The Divine Comedy.
Thank you, I thought I was alone. Apart from Casanova on horn.
Neil Innes did a brilliant TV series called the "Innes Book of Records" in the early-80s. Anyone remember that?
I also have his album "How Sweet to be an Idiot" on vinyl.
He's a parody of his former self.
The middle aged Dad on holiday piping up on the karaoke machine to sing a tired Oasis song from the 90's.
One of the first, and best of the parody groups.
Saw the Bonzos at the Free Trade Hall in 1969 and again at UMIST the following year. Stood next to Viv in the bar at UMIST while getting a pint but I was a star stuck 16 year and couldn't bring myself to say hello.
I wouldn't cross the road to see the odds and sods version of the band that tours these days. Wouldn't be the same.
The Rutles: All You Need is Cash is a wonderful film which takes the piss out of the Beatles. Great songs by ex-Bonzo Neil Innes.
Didn't he go on to The Rutles?
I used to drink in a pub called The Rosendale in south London (I know, I know), Viv used to pop in occasionally. I think he had family nearby or something. There was a house on Rosendale Road, near the pub, that local legend told as the place the Bonzos first started.
Also I believe the Black Abbots in the 70s.
