An Evening with The Rutles @ Garage, 09/05/2018

Featuring origThe Rutlesinal members Ron Nasty (Neil Innes) and Barry Wom (John Halsey), THE RUTLES make a rare live appearance, singing hits from the cult movie, All You Need Is Cash (The Rutles) and beyond. Expect all the classics, including ‘Cheese & Onions,’ ‘I Must Be In Love,’ ‘Piggy In The Middle,’ and ‘Ouch!’.
On January 21, 1959, the Rutles story began at 43 Egg Lane, Liverpool, where Ron Nasty and Dirk McQuickly first bumped into each other. Ron invited Dirk to help him stand up. Dirk, merely an amateur drinker, agreed and on that spot a legend was created, a legend that will last a lunchtime. They were soon to be joined by Stig O’Hara, a guitarist of no fixed hairstyle, but it would be another two years before they found their regular drummer, Barrington Womble, hiding in the van. When they did, they persuaded him to change his name to save time and change his haircut to save Brylcreem. He became simply Barry Wom.Widely known as the “Pre-Fab Four”, The Rutles have also been called a “Beatles parody group”, a charge which is often denied.
The RutlesThe Rutles were originally formed as a spoof by Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band songwriter and musical genius Neil Innes and Monty Python’s Eric Idle for a sketch in the cult BBC TV show ‘Rutland Weekend Television’.
The Rutles went on to star in the film ‘All You Need Is Cash (The Rutles)’, which features cameos from George Harrison, John Belushi, Dan Ackroyd, Mick Jagger, Paul Simon, and Bill Murray.
Their best-known songs include ‘I Must Be In Love’, ‘Cheese And Onions’, ‘Piggy in the Middle’, and ‘With A Girl Like You’.
