Harry Maynard, Harry Harry Maynard



This superb parody of John Lennon's ' Give Peace A Chance' was never released on any Bonzo Dog Band LP's it missed the cut for 'Tadpoles'. This version was recorded as 'Sofa Head' on a John Peel radio show session alongside 3 other tracks 'We're Gonna Bring It On Home', 'Monster Mash' & Tent. The track not only impersonates John & Yoko, it lists British drinking habits of the period, has a dig at religion and features Viv Stanshall's wonderful array of regional accents. Neil Innes would of course go on to further parody The Beatles with his group The Rutles but I want to concentrate on the genius that was Viv Stanshall and I will review a track from his solo career very soon.
