BONZO DOG DOO DAH BAND -- The most diverse bunch of eccentrics ever to be crammed into one music-comedy unit. Known mainly for their one hit I'm the Urban Spaceman produced by Paul McCartney as 'Apollo C Vermouth' their work was mainly surrealist parodies from Viv Stanshall and poignant ballads from Neil Innes.
Oh my my! I don't get the "German" connection, but if you go to Davidicke.com and go to the "Religious Frauds Archive" you can go to the page called "Apollonius the Nazarene" and read the story of "Apollonius of Tyana" who preached what we know today as Christianity. " And why do we know it as Christianity?" you ask. Because the powers that be didn't like Apollonius, so they (see if this sounds familiar) took his basic work and modified it to suit their purposes. Then they said that the teacher of this doctrine was "Jesus Christ". The name "Jesus Christ" was invented from Apollo's teachings which were called "Essenian Christosism". "Jesus Christ" (think Faul) REPLACED Apollo as the source of the teachings (as taught by the powers that were) even though there was no such person. Then all historical references to the REAL Apollo were destroyed in a "collosal deception." ( Well...almost all. ) The library at Alexandria was burned to be sure there was no evidence left of the real A(paul)onius. OOPS. I meant to say the real Apple-onius. Er...heh heh...PAY NO MIND TO THAT MAN BEHIND THE CURTAIN! Come together right now over me.
P.S Apollo was the SUN God. Don't know if Apollonius was "of the sun" (I don't speak Latin) but of course Jesus was the "son" of God, and Apollonius might have (therefore) been the son of the sun. In the book "Jesus Christ Sun of God" by David Fideler, the relationships of "The harmony of Apollo" are discussed. These are mathmatical and MUSICAL harmonies, relating to "mediation and harmony between Unity and Multiplicity". (And that's the "simple" explanation!) ;D
The German thought was because they had spent so much time in Germany in the early years, and to sound out Apollo C. Vermouth in German (I looked up müde in German, it means tired) I thought that perhaps it might have some sort of meaning. One never knows.
