Bonzo gets tongues wagging
PUBLISHED: 14:52 10 November 2010
THE Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band are sure to get tongues wagging when they appear in Bath next month.
They will be performing in their new show Three Bonzos And A Piano, which promises to be diabolical mayhem from the largest number of Bonzos still playing together.
Born in a distant art school past somewhere in the sixties, Three Bonzos And A Piano unleash their Bonzo Dog classics including Hunting Tigers Out In India, I’m Bored, Big Shot, Trouser Press, The Sheik of Araby, Monster Mash, Can Blue Men Sing The Whites?, The Head Ballet and many more.
Robots, smoke, unsuitable medical technology, ancient theatrical props, the kitchen sink and the audience combine to re-create the atmosphere of those formative years of the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band at such legendary venues as The Tiger’s Head, Catford.
Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band fans will be delighted to learn that Roger Ruskin Spear, Rodney Slater and Sam Spoons have teamed up with super-pianist Dave Glasson to create more fun, music and subversive diversion.
The band will be performing at The Komedia in Bath on December 12 at 8pm.
Tickets, priced £10-24, are available from www.komedia.co.uk/bath
