Here is some information on a Bonzo tribute band you might be interested
in that was forwarded around by Laurie
I was wondering if you or anyone reading your site would be interested
to know about the 'Gonzo Dog Do Bar Band', a tribute band to the Bonzos
which will be performing at the Edinburgh Festival this year!
We performed for one night at last year's festival and went down a storm
so this year we are doing a few dates.
The dates and venues are:
Gilded Balloon Theatre: 13-19 August @ 1.00am
Pleasance Dome: 21-27 August @ 1.15am
We do a range of Bonzo songs (listed below), wear costumes and basically
do a fun, silly show very much in the spirit of the band. We are mostly
comedians who are doing this out of love for the Bonzos and we will be
featuring as many guest comedians and celebs as we can lay our hands on
(hopefully ones who play instruments... it does help!)
Anyway, the songs we'll most likely be doing are:
Ali Baba's Camel
I'm The Urban Spaceman
My Pink Half of the Drainpipe
Hunting Tigers out in 'INDIAH'
We Were Wrong/Shirt medley
Canyons of Your Mind
The Bride Stripped Bare by 'Bachelors'
Mr Slater's Parrot
Sport (The Odd Boy)
The Intro and the Outro
Mickey's Son and Daughter
We Are Normal
Terry Keeps His Clips On (Viv Stanshall song)
Anyway, those are the most likely ones so if anyone fancies hearing them
played by a ramshackle, hearty group of chaps at 1 in the morning in
Scotland then we'd love to see you!
