Bill Posters Will Be Band
Bill Posters Will Be Band is a comic musical group formed by musicians who were members of The Bonzo Dog Band and Bob Kerr's Whoopee Band. The band was formed in 1983 by Biff Harrison, Jim "Golden Boots" Chambers, Evil John Gieves Watson, Sam Spoons, Hugh Crozier and Roger Ruskin Spear.
They still perform on the first Thursday of the month at the renowned jazz venue The Bull's Head at Barnes in South West London. The current line-up features Chambers, Harrison, Watson, Spoons, Richard White, Peter Shade and Megs Etherington. Occasionally "special guests" are allowed onstage, notably Master Ruxton Hayward, who was the inspiration for the character Bluebottle in the hugely influential British radio series The Goon Show.
