Death Cab For Cutie
The popular indie band Death Cab for Cutie takes its name from a song by The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band. The band was formed in Bellingham, Washington in 1997 and consists of Ben Gibbard (vocals, guitar), Chris Walla (guitar, production), Nick Harmer (bass) and Jason McGerr (drums).
Gibbard's first album, You Can Play These Songs with Chords, was released as a demo and lead to the band getting a record deal with Barsuk Records.
You can view a performance by the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band of their song (which is on their album Gorilla) take from The Beatles film Magical Mystery Tour (1967). The filmed performance features a stripper but all the nudity was censored.
