As for the "Keynsham" album itself, it is an intense, surreal, but near-impenetrable conceptual piece that depicts the town of Keynsham as an enclosed psychiatric hospital, populated by anxious and disturbed characters in search of meaning or enlightenment.  At the time, Slater was already playing in a traditional jazz band at college with Parkinson on sousaphone, and Chris Jennings on trombone. Although the band considered "Keynsham" their creative zenith, unfortunately their artistic satisfaction didn't translate into healthy record sales on its release in November. Larry and Vernon were at the Bloomsbury gig. The shows were later played in 2008. As their popularity increased (especially among other musicians), they were asked by Paul McCartney to appear in The Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour film at the end of 1967, performing "Death Cab For Cutie". In 2012 they released another CD, Bum Notes. Front and Back covers are both fully laminated. Also included was a version of the band's latest single, the almost proto-metallic "Mr Apollo". Meanwhile, session player Dave Clague, who had deputised for Vernon on various "Gorilla" recording sessions, was hired as replacement bassist. Things began to come together again in 1963 when the two reunited with Wilkes, and two new faces entered the picture: On banjo, double bass and later bass guitar, Goldsmiths College lecturer Vernon Dudley Bowhay-Nowell and his lodger, songwriter/pianist and later guitarist Neil Innes. In this number every member of the band was introduced and played a solo, starting with the genuine band members before including such improbable guest musicians as John Wayne on xylophone, Adolf Hitler on vibes, J. Arthur Rank on gong, Prime Minister Harold Wilson on violin, the Wild Man of Borneo, Val Doonican, Horace Batchelor, and Lord Snooty and His Pals. The line-up changed again later that year with the departure of Parry (who would later go on to be a founder member of The Pasadena Roof Orchestra), and the final 'classic' Bonzos band member, "Legs" Larry Smith, joined to replace the outgoing Lewitt.
The band also made live appearances in the UK in 1974, appearing (at least) at Rutherford College, part of the University of Kent, and Goodricke College, part of the University of York. However, cohesion and success both still lay some way ahead. Also, cult 1990s UK Indie band Sofa Head took their name from the Bonzo's song of the same name (which itself did not receive an official release until 1987). , In 2019 the members of the band became embroiled in a legal battle with "Anglo Atlantic Media Limited" which had trademarked their name, two years previously, without their permission. Martin Ash, alias Sam Spoons, died aged 76 on 27 September 2018. By the end of 1968, The Bonzos wanted to be successful in the US. It was also Stanshall's final recording with the band; he died in a house fire in 1995. This perceived lack of success, exacerbated by Stanshall's continuing problems and the rapidly-deteriorating relationship with Liberty Records, effectively destroyed the group's morale for good. After signing with the US-based Liberty Records label, the Bonzos released their first album, Gorilla (1967), produced by Gerry Bron. The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band (also known as The Bonzo Dog Band and sometimes just "The Bonzos" for short) was created by a group of British art-school students in the 1960s.
In the advertisement, which was of great length, Horace Batchelor, inventor of 'the amazing Infra Draw method', would spell his postal address of K-E-Y-N-S-H-A-M for those listeners who wished to purchase his secret. The core members of the group for most of the band's career were: The very first lineup of the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band consisted of members of the unnamed jazz band formed, firstly, by members of the St. Martin's College Jazz Band in September 1959 and then added to by members of the Royal College of Art Jazz Band in October 1961. Nevertheless, he and the others opted to embark upon a second American tour during September. They proved popular on the club circuit and the lifestyle and steady income generated convinced the band members to turn fully professional. According to Neil Innes, The Bonzos had learned a salutary lesson about the pitfalls of show business: Our trumpeter then was Bob Kerr, great player, and a fun guy. This original lineup (centred around Stanshall, Slater, Wilkes, Brown, Parkinson, Jennings, saxophonist Claude Abbo and Drummer Tom Hedge) soon imploded, however, after flatmates Stanshall, Slater and Parkinson had seriously overspent their Autumn Term's grant money on good food, clothing and musical instruments, which led to their unceremonious eviction in December by their landlord for non-payment of rent (and, thanks to Stanshall's failed attempt at making scrumpy in the bath, damage to the property).  The film culminates with a live performance of "We Are Normal" on a farm. Clague was surprised at his dismissal and to find that he was only considered a 'Hired' musician whilst he was playing with them, despite appearing on every episode of the first series of Do Not Adjust Your Set. ", The situation proved fortuitous, however, as they were able to capitalise on the burgeoning spirit of the times by combining their jazz stylings with increasingly fashionable psychedelic touches. Gerry Bron's misgivings were revealed to be well-founded however when Stratton-Smith proved to be out of his depth, and The Bonzos' first American sojourn was so badly-organised and promoted that the promised 'tour' ended up amounting to little more than the Fillmore appearances and a few scattered low-profile club dates, with much twiddling of thumbs in between. So Bob came, flushed with excitement, to the rest of us at our digs, saying, 'We can be The New Vaudeville Band!' Various members of The Bonzos (including Stanshall and Innes) reconvened in 1988 to record a new single, "No Matter Who You Vote For the Government Always Gets In (Heigh Ho)". .
