In the song Uninvited Guest Hogarth sings: "I'm the Banquo at your
banquet".

In Shakespeare's Macbeth, Banquo is one of Macbeth's friends. Eventually
(you'll have to read the whole thing to find out the details) Macbeth has
him killed.  Later, Banquo's ghost (or many say just a 'mad vision' of a
ghost that Macbeth has) shows up at a banquet he is holding in honor of
Macbeth's ascension to the Scottish throne. Macbeth goes crazy, because he
thought he had had Banquo killed.  It's a great play (plug) as is just
about anything by Shakespeare (plug plug). A must-read for anyone who just
LOVES Hogarth's (or John Helmer's) lyrics. :)
