About this Media...

  • Date Recorded: May 22, 2011
  • Artist / Band: Neil Innes
  • Hosting Show: Pop! The Beat Bubble Burst
  • Sound: Dan Kinney

The absurdity of the world is such that if it didn't already exist, Neil Innes would have had to invent it. And in a way, that's just what this comic genius does in every song.

A central figure in Monty Python's Flying Circus, the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band and the Rutles, Innes' views the world through with a withering, skewed sense of irony, especially when it comes to the cult of celebrity, and yet he's rarely ever misanthropic. Even his best known song, "I'm the Urban Spaceman," ends its satire with the exclamation "I don't exist!" Of course the spaceman is just a figment of our imagination, but the witty, curious and playful voice of Innes is very real indeed.
