I heard this song many times in the mid-80s, but can't for the life of me remember much more than this: it featured a man identifying each member of the band. Each member was someone famous and usually dead - for example (and this is the only lyric I remember precisely), "Sigmund Freud on triangle". It's been driving me nuts for months now - anyone know what it might be?

Casey - This is "The Intro and The Outro" by the Bonzo Dog Band.
"Hi there, nice to be with you, glad you could stick around.
Like to introduce `Legs' Larry Smith, drums
And Sam Spoons, rhythm pole
And Vernon Dudley Bohay-Nowell, bass guitar
And Neil Innes, piano.
Come in Rodney Slater on the saxophone
With Roger Ruskin Spear on tenor sax.
I, Vivian Stanshall, trumpet.
Say hello to big John Wayne, xylophone.... etc

.... from their "Gorilla" album.

the rest of the lyrics are here: http://bridge.anglia.ac.uk/~systimk/music/bonzos/Tracks/Intro-Outro.Htmlx

hope this helps.

Right on! Thank you much - you've made me (and my mother, who was also wracking her brains) very happy.
