• Short Summary

    Excellent film of The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band doing some 'Head Ballet' to their music.

  • Description

    London.

    Fabulous musical item shows The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band (left to right: Sam Spoons (?), Neil Innes, Rodney Slater, Vivian Stanshall, Roger Ruskin Spear) sitting in a row and looking from side to side in unison to their tune 'Music For Head Ballet' (from their first LP 'Gorilla', fact fans!).

    We also see some of the paraphernalia around them; mannequin heads, a mechanical robot labelled 'Normal Norman' blowing a kiss and bubbles that float about the set and a few other surreal bits and pieces. Funny business ensues as the others do double-takes towards Sam Spoons as he looks the other way. At the end of the number they look one by one to the side and the mannequin head falls off.

    Brilliant!
