Out last night for a friend’s birthday and enthused to the excellent Dee when Captain Beefheart came on. She asked me what I thought was: whether I had heard the “deer bongo nose story”. I was confused. I had not.
What she had actually been talking about was the “‘Dear Bongo, no’ story”, which turns out is the response Beefheart sent to Bono when Bono asked if he would like to collaborate.
