About The Bonzo Dog Band

Besides, perhaps, the Mothers of Invention (with whom they were sometimes compared), the Bonzo Dog Band were the most successful group to combine rock music and comedy. Starting off as the Bonzo Dog Dada Band, then becoming the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band, and then finally just the Bonzo Dog Band, the group was started by British art college students in the mid-'60s. Initially they were inclined toward trad jazz and vaudevillian routines, but by the time of their 1967 debut album, they were leaning further in pop and rock directions. ...

The 4 is indicative of the regard I have for them, not their "Hall Chances." Al Roker has a better shot at getting in there than they do. Irreverent late 60's/ early 70's British group, fairly popular in Britain, a cult act here, that specialized in wacky songs, often in a 20's music hall or Dixieland manner. You might recall Neil Innes of this group from his appearance as Sir Robin's minstrel in Monty Python's Holy Grail or for his role as the McCartneyesque character inthe Beatles pastiche "The Rutles." This group, praised by many in the 60's British rock scene, appeared in the Magical Mystery Tour film as the lounge act singing "Death Cab For Cutie," and McCartney himself produced their lone U.K. hit, the jaunty "I'm The Urban Spaceman." Daft , hilarious, but talented assemblage. My favorite song of theirs might be the priceless 1969 track "Mr. Apollo" which tears apart the "get big and strong and kick the sand right back in their faces" scams/ ads that you would find in magazines and comic books back then, promising huge muscles in only 7 days. Sometimes they can be twee or annoying, but for the most part they are well worth listening to.
