"Along with his brother, Tony, and Bruce Lacey, Douglas formed the band The Alberts. The surreal band, with their wild performances and mad-cap antics, were the epitome of British eccentricity mixed with post-war anti-establishment sentiments.

As part of the musical comedy scene, they mixed with many of the acts of the day.  Douglas and Tony were the two musicians behind Spike Milligan and Peter Sellers in the ‘Jump into a Dustbin and Dance’ sketch in ‘A Show Called Fred’ and as well as appearing in The Goon Show, they were cited as influences on The Goodies and The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band."
