Exclusive, unseen Neil Innes performance footage shows up on The Seventh Python MySpace page
So what's the greatest rock 'n' roll song ever? A candidate for the most influential, unsung talent in the field certainly is Neil Innes, the satirist, songwriter and performer who's being featured in exclusive, private performance video on the The Seventh Python MySpace page promoting his upcoming biopic.
Innes has been a prime mover for more than forty years, since his days in the Bonzo Dog Band (immortalized in Magical Mystery Tour, through his work with Monty Python, George Harrison and The Rutles, his recent Bonzos reunion album (without question one of the best of 2007)and now, finally getting his due with The Seventh Python, the musical feature from our pals at Frozen Pictures.
Python will premiere at the American Cinematheque's Mods & Rockers Film Festival in Hollywood at the end of June, and it's already generating tremendous buzz in the industry and in fan circles after a sneak screening on the Sunset Strip and a trailer that ran at Martin Lewis' unprecedented Rutles reunion at the Egyptian Theatre.
The first MySpace clip went up over the weekend. The Frozen team tells us they'll continue to add new, exclusive, unseen Innes clips up to the movie's premiere.
