RhoDeo 1643 Monty

Hello,



Monty Python (sometimes known as The Pythons) were a British surreal comedy group who created the sketch comedy show Monty Python's Flying Circus, which first aired on the BBC on 5 October 1969. Forty-five episodes were made over four seasons. The Python phenomenon developed from the television series into something larger in scope and impact, including touring stage shows, films, numerous albums, several books, and a stage musical. The group's influence on comedy has been compared to the Beatles' influence on music. ..N'Joy

Monty Python (sometimes known as The Pythons) were a British surreal comedy group who created the sketch comedy show Monty Python's Flying Circus, which first aired on the BBC on 5 October 1969. Forty-five episodes were made over four seasons. The Python phenomenon developed from the television series into something larger in scope and impact, including touring stage shows, films, numerous albums, several books, and a stage musical. The group's influence on comedy has been compared to the Beatles' influence on music.
Fusing the topical satire of David Frost with the surreal outlandishness of The Goon Show, the Monty Python's Flying Circus troupe formed in England in 1969. Comprised of British performers John Cleese, Michael Palin, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Graham Chapman, along with American animator Terry Gilliam, the group emerged as an international cult phenomenon, honing its singular blend of broad slapstick, edgy black comedy, and social commentary in a string of successful television programs, films, and albums.

After meeting during a taping of the British children's series Do Not Adjust Your Set, the Pythons officially took shape in May 1969 when the BBC contracted the group to produce its own 13-week program. Monty Python's Flying Circus, a weekly sketch comedy series, premiered that October; after becoming a major hit throughout Europe, the troupe recorded 1970's Monty Python's Flying Circus LP, a set of new performances of television material recorded in front of a live audience (including their legendary "dead parrot" sketch, "The Pet Shop"). Their film debut, And Now for Something Completely Different -- a collection of highlights from the series -- followed in 1971.

Another Monty Python Record, released in the U.K. in 1971, made its American debut the following year; for most U.S. fans, the album was their first exposure to the troupe -- the BBC series did not begin appearing on public television outlets for several more months. After 1972's Monty Python's Previous Record, a mixture of original routines and TV material featuring "Eric the Half a Bee," "The Argument Clinic," and "Embarrassment/A Bed-Time Book," the group issued 1973's Matching Tie and Handkerchief, which featured a "trick track" gimmick whereby the second side contained separate grooves both featuring entirely different material; playing randomly depending upon where the needle dropped, the gimmick effectively created a "side three."
A 1973 British tour yielded Live at Drury Lane, released in 1974 to coincide with the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail; the movie's companion record, The Album of the Soundtrack of the Trailer of the Film of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, a reprise of screen material along with new skits, did not appear until the next year. After 1976's Live! At City Center, a long hiatus followed before the group reunited for the 1979 feature and soundtrack Monty Python's Life of Brian.

Monty Python's Contractual Obligation Album appeared in 1980, followed by the 1982 concert film Live at
the Hollywood Bowl. The 1983 feature Monty Python's the Meaning of Life was the last official group project, although the troupe members subsequently reunited on occasion; most famously, Cleese and Palin teamed in the hit comedy A Fish Called Wanda, while Gilliam's directorial efforts like Time Bandits, Brazil, and The Adventures of Baron Munchausen all prominently featured other Python alumni. Sadly, Graham Chapman died of cancer on October 4, 1989.

In a motif established on their first long-player, Monty Python's Flying Circus (1970), much of the material incorporated into Another Monty Python Record (1971) was derived from the less visually oriented surrealistic sketches from their BBC television program. More importantly, this disc was the first to be issued throughout North America -- although the show was initially aired only in major markets on PBS stations. The quintet of writer/actors Michael Palin, Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and the distinctly American Terry Gilliam revolutionized comedy from slapstick physical humor into an exceedingly more cerebral space, where the satire could be directed squarely at "serious" works of art, literature, or historical figures as easily as it could be a series of Dadaist non sequiturs. They take siege of the vinyl LP medium, as Palin's sincere opening "Apologies" establishes that listeners should immediately suspend their disbelief and, in the words of the Beatles, "Turn off your mind, relax and float downstream." However, between the Viking-led tributes to "Spam" or Palin's abrupt interjections as Cardinal Ximinez during the "Spanish Inquisition" entries, there is the thoughtful madness of "World Forum," where Idle quizzes the likes of Karl Marx, Vladimir Ilich Ulyanov, Che Guevara, and Mao Tse-tung on the subject of British football. One of the longer pieces is the somewhat involved story of "The Piranha Brothers," Doug and Dinsdale, and a giant hedgehog named Spiny Norman.

According to a female-impersonating character played by Cleese, "Norman was wont to be about 12 feet from snout to tail, but when Dinsdale was depressed, Norman could be anything up to eight hundred yards long." 'Nuf said. In addition to the aforementioned "Spam" skit, another of the scenes that Python would keep in their live act features cross-dressing Palin and Idle as a pair of high court and highly camp "Judges."
Whereas their debut album may have seemed like a bunt to the comparative home run of Another Monty Python Record, the troupe would score a grand slam their next time up at bat with the follow-up, Monty Python's Previous Record (1972).

Hi Rho-X

Thank you for uploading Monty Pythons Record, I have been a massive Fan of theirs for over 4000 Years, (No perhaps 40 years).
They have been a tremendous influence on my life, indeed where would millions of Cyclist be without "Bicycle Repair Man".
Now without repeating myself, Deja Vu.

All the very best
