A commentary on Stegzy's album collection

Keynsham – Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band [#652]

Keynsham….Tell me more about Keynsham

Having had the band’s infamous I’m the Urban Spaceman as a 7″ single since I was a Frisco Disco owning child, the Best of and Cornology since CD days and being fortunate enough to see the surviving band members perform at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall in the noughties, in the it made sense to obtain the band’s re-released-re-mastered original albums which I did via Apple Music.

Keynsham was the band’s fourth album, arriving long after Gorrilla, Doughnut in Granny’s Greenhouse and Tadpoles, and stylistically it shows. While the humour and quirkiness of the earlier albums are still evident, there is a certain maturity and definate shift toward a more contemporary sound akin to the Beatles and similar acts in some songs.

The album contains a number of my favourite Bonzo songs and often has me singing along. Particular favourites include: Mr Slater’s Parrot, Busted and semi biographical The Bride Stripped Bare (by the Batchelors).

The A1111….and Other ones – John Shuttleworth [#631]

Unknown-5One-trick Pony John Shuttleworth’s latest album.

You might know Graham Fellows as Jilted John or in his Northern persona John Shuttleworth. Simplistic easy listening with a heavy dose of Northern British humour. I bought this album after seeing Shuttleworth live in Milton Keynes.

An amusing musical folly.
