The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band >> The Bestiality of the Bonzo Dog Band

The play in words in the name of the album is the only redeeming feature. That, and their most well known song, Urban Spaceman.

  1. I've thoroughly enjoyed sniggering at some of the musical atrocities highlighted on this blog, but I was genuinely shocked to see the incomparable Bonzo Dog Band amongst them.

    If you think you're being clever by sneering ironically at the off-kilter trad jazz and nonsensical ditties on this album then think again. The Bonzos always had their tongues planted firmly in their cheeks and remain some of the finest purveyors of musical japery to this day.

    Their witty, playful and inventive music will always be a delight to my ears. I feel sorry for anyone who can only muster a derisive smirk in response to the joyfully silly likes of "My Pink Half of the Drainpipe" or "Rhinocratic Oaths".
