Band Biography[]

The Bonzos (originally the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band) started as a ever-changing collective (lead by Vivian Stanshall and [[Neil Inne typically, though Neil joined later) that would typically perform songs of a older jazz/[[ragtim nature, with a [[dada (genre)|dadais bent to them. Their first record and early singles were of this nature (and splinter group The New Vaudville Band actually had a hit with this style of music with "Winchester Cathedral"), although the Bonzos wouldn't reach success until they shortened their name (though they never had a "the" like some bands), to just the Bonzo Dog Band, and changed their sound to a more accessible pop sound (though still [[dada (genre)|dad). The [[psychedeli scene was more open to their [[dada (genre)|dad ways, and made "I'm The Urban Spaceman" a hit—though the [[Neil Inne penned song did have the help of its producer, one Apollo C. Vermouth. They only put out 4 records (aside from the label-mandated reunion record, which tended to be a collection of solo songs anyway), and broke up amicably into their own separate bands/solo projects, as the constant touring had stopped being fun. [[Neil Inne probably had the most success, although Vivian Stanshall had quite a bit, too, with not only his music and spoken word projects, but he also appeared in films and advertisements. [[Roger Ruskin Spea and [[Rodney Slate both put out solo projects as well, which were minor successes.
