商品説明

The band's second album - 'Bum Notes' - from Three Bonzos and a Piano was launched at the band's Brighton Festival Fringe show on Sunday 27 May 2012 at the Brighton Komedia. The Three Bonzos - Sam Spoons, Rodney Slater and Roger Ruskin Spear - are all original members of the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band (now celebrating 50 years since it's inception), with the line-up being completed by Dave Glasson, a Whoopee Band original, on piano. Adding to the affray are guests Andy Roberts (Liverpool Scene) on guitar and other plucking things, and Chris Spedding (Motorbikin' bass!). Those already familiar with everything Bonzo will be delighted to learn that Three Bonzos and a Piano's second album 'Bum Notes' brings together spoofs on a variety of styles of music (starting with the famous Blue Note jazz label!), a habit they have maintained since the sixties from their Gorilla album onwards, covering 30's jazz through Rock 'n' Roll and upwards, but with their own unique twist. Those discovering Three Bonzos And A Piano for the first time - which includes lots of younger people if their audiences at their sell-out shows over the last three years are anything to go by - will find a refreshing take on much that they hold sacred. Here is the first review - from The Source magazine based in Brighton UK: Bum Notes - a review of the new album from 3 Bonzos and a Piano 18 tracks, 55 minutes, of music, mayhem and madness expressly lacking in maturity and mediocrity. This is a superb collection of songs from 3 original Bonzos, Roger Ruskin-Spear, Rodney Slater and Sam Spoons plus Dave Glasson ex-Bob Kerr's Whoopee band. They revisit some old classics and overhaul them completely and deliver new songs with all the angst, confusion and humour that age and (i'm)maturity brings. This will appeal to all ages, even those who have lived as a hermit since the early 60's and have never heard of the Bonzos. For those of more tender years it takes you gently by the hand and shows you the pleasures that await you in later life. If you are of the same generation then you are hip to their jive, meaning your hips won't jive so it is all in the mind. Play this album and re-live the 60's and discover everything since then. Indulge in prog rock and experience audio experiments, discover country and western and realise it aint all bad, then blow your mind with electronic spoons, but most of all just enjoy - you will smile and feel better afterwards. Despite the title there is not a Bum Note on this album. Track by Track Er (The In-tray and the Out-tray) - the legendary Intro & Outro is revisited, taken apart and put back together in a beautifully confused manner with a great jazzy backing. Achin' and Shakin' - Bus Pass Rock and roll. Great bass and guitar riffs for angry old men. It is all about Aging and Raging. Kicking out at a world that dumps on anyone over 60. Holey Cheeses - Country and Western for cheese loving atheists. If you have any right wing Christian fundamentalist relatives over from the US then play this for them and they will consider you the spawn of the devil. Not for people with a cheese allergy. The cheese and pickle on the communion wafers, Yee Haaa and bless you. I'm Against Everything - Grumpy lyrics over reggae rhythms. Ian Drury and the Blackheads would be proud of this one. Purple Sprouting Broccoli - Country and Western about loving in the veg patch. Accordion and slide guitar with gardening advice. You will dig this - it's better than Miracle Grow. Veg based Viagra. I Find Tyres Exciting - Pure Bonzo nonsense crying out for Viv's dulcet tones but delivered with subtlety and honesty by Roger. White-walled low profile and slick - and that's just Roger. I Love Washing Up - Cutlery and utensil based track all about one man's love of washing up. Whistle and Spoons - exactly what the title says, short and sweet. The Cairo Two-Step - Strictly come sand dancing, musical Immodium. This is the new dance sensation with easy to follow instructions. Walk like an Egyptian with Cairo tummy. New Music for the Leg - Moody, weird, sanatogen-based theremin
