Monty Python Sings (again)/Monty Python’s Flying Circus (live) (the cheerful insanity of mad sheep and englishmen)

python pyton 2      In the midst of the nineteen seventies with all of the great music and adoring nostalgia the rare few of us embrace, there lay in haste a band of merry minstrels known to the happily deranged as Monty Python’s Flying Circus. We chosen few (and many still at large I might add) are the ones who have entered another dimension, not only one of sight and sound but of a most off key balance of the psyche with no questions to ask. The course of action taken here would be your basic attempt at spotting a looney, avoiding being gunned down by gangster sheep, and not to be trodded upon by a massive hedgehog named Spiny Norman, (who by the way is still on the loose). The Pythonic madmen have always encountered and never shied away from a song in their hearts ready to be given to the world with strange intention. And here we have a culmination of doodles that have been penned over the years by our idiosyncratic idiots and their idiocy. Besides colluding in collusion with cacophony and confined concentration (or maybe just confined) considering continuous contempt for the very inspiration of their cheerful debauchery, another partner involved in these mental crimes is none other than Neil Innes of the Bonzo Dog Band (formerly known as the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band) of the Da Da genre, having co-written some of the tunes from “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”. What am I talking about? So! There is a question after all! I don’t know…they don’t know…and no one needs to know! You may charge your predominant attention over to those good old days when greedy songs pertaining to money, the unknown ingredients in Spam, or slightly less than manly lumberjacks parading through the forest may be just what you require for what ails you. And if nothing is ailing you…give it time. The following disc bestows upon us a live performance of the Pythonians from good old nineteen seventy, a wonderful and amusing time for madness and nostalgia. If you look up in the sky, you may be shot at by sheep (or if your fortunate…shoot one yourself), bite into an amphibious confection, or view the famed (and unwanted) albatross. That is the beauty of Monty Pythons Flying Circus. Nudge nudge wink wink say no more…

    Who could forget the Dept. of Silly Walks. Carson would imatate that walk at the drop of a hat. Spam –Spam –Spam -made in the broiler with pineapple slices on it. I submit to all who have never tasted it that they don’t know what they’re missing. I can hear the song sung now. The sets on the TV show were the best—nothing but a table and chair and a wobbly door for the next entrance of a character that was trying to look intelligent wearing dark rimmed glasses and asking a non descript question. A nondescript answer followed by the man sitting at the wobbly table with a piece of paper and a pencil. He looked dumbfounded about everything but whatever answer he gave was accepted. Reminds me of today’s politicans. Nothing said–nothing answered.
    Thanks John
