The Hee Bee Gee Bees
were a comedy group consisting of comic actor/writer Angus Deayton
, musician Philip Pope
and performer Michael Fenton Stevens
, all more well known at the time for their work on radio show Radio Active
The band's biggest success came from the hit Meaningless Songs In Very High Voices, an obvious parody of The Bee Gees, for which the band members adopted pseudonyms such as 'Gary Bibb'.
Two albums followed, 439 Golden Greats - Never Mind The Original's Here's The Hee Bee Gee Bees and The Hee Bee Gee Bees Present - 20 Big No. 2’s, consisting of songs 'by' "Jack Michaelson", "Larry Pilsson", "Sexist Midnight Runners" and others. Several singles were also released, but none had the success of the first. Many of these songs were also used on either Radio Active or its later TV spin-off KY TV.
