Bonzo! Neil Innes Plays Live at NPR

 

He still is the urban
spaceman….

We’ve been enjoying NPR Music’s “Tiny Desk Concerts” for
some time now, and the set they posted to their website today has got to be one
of the best ever: Neil Innes, who may have warmed the cockles of your heart at
various points while a member of The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band, Monty Python’s Flying
Circus and, neither least nor last, The Rutles.

 

According to NPR, Innes popped in to the offices “armed with
just his guitar and ukulele, played three songs in less than 10 minutes and
then made a quick getaway.”

 

The tracks included Rutles hit “I Must Be In Love” plus a
pair of Bonzos classics, “I’m The Urban Spaceman” and “Democracy.” You can see the set right here at NPR.
