Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band

Bonzo Dog Doo Dah BandThe urban spacemen of the late-60's, the Bonzo Dog Doo-DahBand (as they were called at the time of this Peel Session) went through several name changes, starting as the Bonzo Dog Dada Band and ending, simply, as the Bonzo Dog Band. The group combined comedy and music in a psychedelic cabaret, even appearing in The Beatles 'Magical Mystery Tour'. Paul McCartney, using the name Apollo C. Vermouth, even produced their single 'I'm The Urban Spaceman' which hit the Top 5 in 1968. Band stalwart Neil Innes went on to work with the Monty Python team, writing the music for their spoof documentary The Ruttles.
