Real Leather Jacket

The Intro & The Outro
released on 'The Attack of the Killer B's', 1989, BBC Enterprises, ZCQ 739 (also available on Album REQ 739 & Compact Disc BBC CD 2004
This is a compilation of B-sides that turned out to be a hell of a lot better than the A-sides, hence 'Killer B's'. Of The Intro & The Outro, the liner notes say: The Intro & The Outro was the brilliant B side of the Bonzo's 1967 single The Equestrian Statue that, sadly, made no impact on the charts. Conceived and written by the group's Vivian Stanshall, The Intro & The Outro remains an inspired piece of madness entirely unique to the much loved (and missed) Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band.
There's No Room To Rhumba In A Sport's Car
from 'The Last Temptation of Elvis', 1990, New Musical Express, NME CD. 038/039. Vivian Stanshall & The Big Boys
An All-Star tribute featuring 26 songs from Elvis's (appalling, ed.) movies...all star means Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, the Pogues, The Jesus & Mary Chain, Vivian, and other folks like that. Vivian was handed 'Sport's Car' and asked to make something of it. So he did.
