P'our L'Amour Des Chiens
(Storming Music Company)


Back in the late ‘60s, The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band drove music fans wild. With their often hysterical, always rocking Monty Python meets the Beatles sound, the Bonzo’s did it all. Main man Neil Innes formed The Rutles after the Bonzo’s late '60s heyday and while its been light ages since a new Bonzo's album, in 2007 the core original band, minus the late Vivian Stanshall, reformed for a 28 cut CD of new music called P’our L’Amour Des Chiens. This 2008 Bonzos still has that Mel Brooks producing the Beatles vibe (Innes even uncannily looks a little like old Mel these days), while the inclusion of several new singer-songwriters in the lineup makes for some vital and fresh pop twists and turns. A new cover of a near forgotten Stanshall track “Now You’re Asleep” has an Abbey Road-era McCartney influence while an Innes song here, “Early Morning Train” has a Help era / Julian Lennon influence. A limited edition of Chiens, with a detailed 40 page CD booklet, comes with a DVD of new interviews featuring Innes and other long time Bonzo members as well as the current band showing off the current Bonzos stage act. From any genre of ‘60s pop, progressive rock to Vaudeville, British comedy and beyond, the Bonzos bring it on home again with P’our L’Amour Des Chiens.
