Rutles201905

Tickets = https://www.seetickets.com/event/the-rutles/lewes-con-club-lewes/1293819

Occasional supergroup The Rutles - led by ex-Bonzo NEIL INNES and drummer JOHN HALSEY – return in May 2019 for a short series of UK dates: THE GET UP AND GO AGAIN TOUR – 2019

Widely known as the “ Pre – Fab Four “, The Rutles first arrived on our screens in 1975 via a sketch on Eric Idle’s BBC television series ‘RUTLAND WEEKEND TELEVISION’. It featured Neil Innes (Monty Python songwriter and ex-Bonzo Dog Band founding member) fronting the band singing “ I Must Be In Love”.
Three years later, the ground breaking movie, 'All You Need Is Cash', expanded the satire and featured guest appearances by George Harrison, Mick Jagger, Bill Murray, Michael Palin, John Belushi, Dan Ackroyd, and many more.

As a peer of The Beatles in the 1960s (The Bonzos appeared in the Magical Mystery Tour film and Paul McCartney produced a single for them), Neil Innes is well qualified to satirise the Fab Four.
With the exception of Eric Idle, each of the four Rutles (including drummer John Halsey – AKA – Barry WOM) played their own instruments as well as acting in the film.
In fact few people realise that Halsey is a Rock icon in his own right, having drummed on many classic albums, including the Lou Reed album Transformer, and toured with many others including, Joe Cocker, The Scaffold, Grimms, Timebox , Patto.

Expect a full evenings entertainment, featuring all the classic songs including
I Must Be In Love / Cheese And Onions / Piggy in the Middle / With a Girl Like You / (And of course) Get Up and Go.

In 2019 – The Rutles are; NEIL INNES (aka Ron Nasty) - Vocals / Guitar / Banjo / Ukulele / Keyboards - JOHN HALSEY (aka Barry Wom) - Vocals / Drums - "Rutling" KEN THORNTON - Vocals / Guitar - PHIL JACKSON - Vocals / Keyboards - DAVID CATLIN BIRCH - Vocals / Bass

The musical collaboration of Michael Chapman and Ehud Banai may not seem like an obvious coupling, except for the fact that Michael Chapman has for some years now been pushing his musical envelope in all directions, embracing many genres of music some for the first time, and Ehud Banai cut his musical teeth back in the 70’s listening to Michael Chapman, in the valley of Rosh Pina in Upper Galilee.

Michael knew nothing of Ehud while Ehud knew much about Michael’s music. They finally met in Tel Aviv in the autumn of 2013 in a local radio session when they played together for the first time.
“The hairs on the back of my neck stood up. There was such an instant rapport. It was totally mesmeric”- Andru Chapman.
Since then they have toured together several times with the musical empathy developing all the while into a unique combination of Middle Eastern chords, Chapman riffs and Hebrew lyrics.
