    I've not been online much this week, and part of that is because I've been going out more than normal, so I've got a few posts to make tonight. First is a review of The Bonzo Dog Band ( or The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band as they've once again become). Before that, though, a quick apology - we've been running a bit late on sending out Citizen Gomez. Hopefully, the CDBaby page will be up soon, but those of you who've ordered it should still have it within a couple of days (and the rest of you - why haven't you?)

    A few hours before the gig, I bumped into Rodney Slater, "Legs" Larry Smith and Sam Spoons walking around Manchester. I didn't bother them too much, but they seemed delighted to be recognised - something which, after all, can't happen all that often. Holly was completely unimpressed when I mentioned this, but I still think it's impressive...

    The gig itself was wonderful, and a bit odd. The Bonzos were never really a band, as much as a loose coalition of individuals, and this was very noticeable on the reunion gig DVD. …
