Because when you think about it Beth Gibbons being Ozzy actually makes a lot of sense.

Apparently so. They've not made any records since 2007, but their Facebook page shows them as having played recently.
https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Okmo ... 6566496734
Think they may have been on hiatus for a while.
The 1st time Nobunny played the UK (at The Stag's Head), it was a tripple bill of Nobunny, Okmoniks and Rock & Roll Adventure Kids. I think Justin played bass with The Adventure Kids and drummed with The Okmoniks, before donning the rabbit mask for his Nobunny set (backed by two Adventure Kids and an Okmonik). Great gig, packed out despite limited publicity due to them having snuck in without the required paperwork.

Bound to be divisive, but I really like this cover, even thought it's the second version of the band which I really wasn't keen on. The original is pretty impossible to beat, but they gave it a good go here, especially since the idea of the album was to get everything done in a very short space of time, so it was recorded in a rush.

Robert Wyatt - Shipbuilding (1982)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UjUkjpJa6bY

Suede - Shipbuilding (1995 - recorded for the Warchild 'Help' album)
