Rodney Slater's Parrots - Parrotopia! CD (incl delivery)
£12.00 On sale
At the grand age of 75 self confessed late developer and founder member of The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band Rodney Slater has joined forces with Michael 'Sir Henry at Rawlinson End' Livesley to gather together a pandemonium of Parrots featuring The Rutles' John ‘The Admiral’ Halsey and The Mekons' Susie Honeyman - to record Rodney Slater’s Parrots debut LP of brand spanking new material in the Shed Studio, here in deepest darkest Hampshire. Lord Rodney and Sir Michael have taken a look at the post-truth world we all now live in and decided to forego the pleasure of their Dutch hoes for a few months and left their kitchen gardens to offer us the antidote - PARROTOPIA! - a true state of mind.

Lord Rodney Slater - vocals, saxophones, clarinet, bass clarinet, lead sprouts
Sir Michael Livesley - vocals, keyboards, guitars, bass, ukulele, jaw’s harp, body orchestra, lead sprouts
John ‘The Admiral’ Halsey - drums, washboard, percussion, geniality, sprouts

Ken ‘Rutling Ken’ Thornton - lead guitar on ‘Parrotopia! (It’s Over There)’ - sprouts
Malcolm ‘Iron Man’ Sked - sousaphone & sprouts
and introducing ‘The Brothers Brassica’ ‘the toast of the Kalihani Pass’
Featuring an incredibly lavish 20 page fully illustrated booklet containing all the lyrics, this landmark album is finally here - just in time!
