Classis British eccentricity set to music.
4 June 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Neil Innes, writer/performer for the late lamented Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band and "The Seventh Python" was given free rein by BBC2 to put many of the Bonzo's songs to video, along with some of his later solo works.

Classics include "Protest Song" - a superb Bob Dylan parody, later performed for Amnesty International at "The Secret Policeman's Other Ball", "Cat Meat Conga" - definitely the place Andrew Lloyd Webber stole the idea for "Cats" from, never mind that T.S.Elliot fellow he nicked the words off and "Spaghetti Western" - which would have made Sergio Leone bin the 35mm and open a pizza restaurant. Of course, that's my opinion; I've never met two Innes fans who agree on a top track list...

"Monty Python" and "Do Not Adjust Your Set" influences are evident, but restrained. Bear in mind that is a two-way street – it may be that Neil influenced the style of the more famous works to a greater extent than they influenced his.

Best watched late at night with a couple of beers - there *are* flat spots, but then that is true of all good comedy.
