If you are a Beatle fan then chances are you know of a place called Rutland. If you know those connections (ie Monty Python), then you know The Rutles. It follows then you know of Neil Innes. Where there is Neil there is The Bonzo Dog Band (aka ”..Doo-Dah Band”, ”..Dada Band”, and “The Bonzos”). Formed precisely on September 25th, 1962, they were perhaps best known for being the regular band on the children’s television program, Do Not Adjust Your Set. Satire, parody, zaniness, weird, inventive, or musical; whatever you want to call it, it’s great creative fun.
Sly does it. Tiptoe catspaws. Slide and creep.
But why? What for? How? Who? When! Where did it all begin?
“You don’t know, do you?” asks Carapace Clavicle Moundshroud climbing out of the pile of leaves under the Halloween Tree. “You don’t really know!”
