"Yes we can can!" said Little Nicola.

Of the bands I'm familiar with, I'd say the Bonzo Dog Band were the funniest,

something of an earlier musical version of Monty Python. The Tubes and

Wendy O. Williams and the Plasmatics were more weird than funny, but

weird would likely have a lot of competition.

 

Speaking of weird or funny, a local civic center is having an ice skating show

performed to the music of Styx. I will likely not be attending. ]:)

They were fun and also put out a lot of good pop music. Fred performed a duty

above and beyond his usual vocal performance when he spread the word about

the hot pants explosion in the factory. Who knows how many lives were saved

due to his quick thinking.

Thanks for mentioning them, from another big Bonzos fan!

Got all their LP's (British & U.S.) and several 45's too.

Also have various solo LP's by Neil Innes, Vivian Stanshall, with the the two Roger Ruskin Spear solo albums being particular favorites.

 

Here's where to read more, for anyone not familiar with them:

This is the song I'm working on so I don't mess it up when I play for family and friends on Christmas eve. It is a really hard song to play compared to most Christmas songs. It is structured more like a jazz standard with complex chords than a folk type Christmas song. The second half, where it speads up is fun to play. Watching Bing sing the song helps me with the phasing and timing.

 

A great song sang by a great singer and entertainer.

Sometimes it's good to be just a musical "civilian." A little added pressure

for the holidays. I'm sure you'll do fine. It is hard to beat Bing for Christmas

songs.

 

We have a radio station that starts playing Christmas music a few days before

Thanksgiving and keeps on going up to Christmas. You'll hear it all.

I used to go to live Andy Williams Xmas Concerts. There would be no fanfare, no introduction--He would just walk out singing "The Most Wonderful Time of The Year". It was just like being at NBC-TV City in Hollywood, but I was really in downtown Kansas City.

I don't recall specifically, but I'm sure he was moving along at least with the

pace of the crowd, but not as enthusiastically as he did things on his TV

show. There aren't a lot of people who look like Joe Franklin, then or now.
