1 Edison 1 week ago .. Setting the WABAC machine for the late 60s:We didn't see it here in the states back then, but The Bonzos were frequent guests on shows like the BBC's Do Not Adjust Your Set, where they bonded with cast member/writer, and future 'Python'; Eric Idle. Idle and Neil Innes (here parodying Jimi Hendrix with his Gretsch) would cultivate an enduring friendship and collaborate on projects like 'The Rutles: All You Need Is Cash', arguably the first 'mock-umentary', predating 'Spinal Tap' by about 5 years.The Bonzos were all skilled musicians, if not formally trained. They had a penchant for reworking old jazz tunes, but were more dada than vaudeville. Plenty of subversive British absurdity. I really miss bands like this and the music they made, my other favorite being The Mothers Of Invention.
